University Advising

The worldwide reputation enjoyed by UWCSEA's holistic learning programme means that our students are highly sought after by a wide range of universities around the world, including the most selective. Any student who wishes to attend university will be guided towards the best fit for their areas of interest.

International University Advising Fair

On both campuses, experienced teams of University Advisors support and guide students as they select their IB subjects and navigate university admissions processes across many destinations. Our student-centred approach encourages students to follow their passions and seek out the best options for their particular interests. 

Our university advising and career guidance programme commences in Grade 10. Students are provided with access to tools that assist them in gauging their potential for future studies and the possible career paths that will best suit them. These are explored as part of the PSE programme in mentor time and during grade-level assemblies. Our university advisors also provide Grade 10 students with advice on subject selection in preparation for the IBDP in Grade 11.

From Grade 11, an individualised programme of advising is provided, and our experienced University Advisors work with students to ensure they are supported in making choices and applications to best-fit courses and universities around the world. 

In addition to individual advising, our University Advisors run workshops and presentations for students and parents, to help in planning and making decisions around university choice. Students who are going on to complete National Service or to experience a Gap Year or the world of work are guided through this process by our University Advisors.

In addition to this, our alumni mentoring programme links current students with UWCSEA graduates who can share their experiences at particular universities and in specific career sectors. This can be via individual contact or through a series of Skype calls and workshops on campus. The annual cross-campus Careers Fair for our High School students is organised by our Parents’ Associations, and gives students an opportunity to speak with experts in a wide range of industries - some are parents, some are alumni and others volunteer from sectors that our university advising team have identified as of interest to our students.

Each year, over 300 university representatives from highly-regarded institutions from many countries, including Australia, Canada, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, the UK, the US and a number in Europe, visit one or both campuses to meet our students and provide information on courses and pathways.
