University Guidance

FIS places a great deal of importance on student career guidance, whether it’s during their school years or by mapping out their higher education plans or future career

The University Guidance Department

FIS’ University Guidance Department comprises 4 guidance counsellors, each with their area of ​​geographic expertise, and an administrative and communication assistant.

The University Guidance Department’s mission is to enable each student to develop and implement their own career objectives, and be fully aware of the requirements of higher education and their job prospects.

Working alongside both teaching staff and parents, the guidance counsellors support each student in developing their career objectives, with the following goals:

  • to get students to play an active role in career development by reflecting on further learning opportunities;

  • to have students determine their aptitudes, their motivations, their personal qualities and their ambitions;

  • to support students as they explore and collect the information they need to find their bearings with regard to professions and training;

  • to prepare students as much as possible for the selection tests for certain educational establishments.

In addition, the UniversityGuidance Department:

  • maintains ongoing relationships with international universities to promote the FIS around the world;

  • organises numerous events (meetings, forums, etc.) throughout the year to support students in their individual post-bac training curriculum;

  • promotes the AGORA Monde platform, which aims to connect current and former students from French secondary schools around the world to discuss career paths and professional life.
