Our Higher Education Pathway

The global gold-standard international curriculum for 16-18 year olds

How do we support our students in getting to university?

When it comes to university placements, we keep our eye on the value case: what universities are worth your money and, more importantly, three to four years of your child’s most vigorous years? This question can’t be answered by league tables or reputation alone. 


We have to know who your child is and help them envision who they want to be – professionally and personally. We can then ask, what concrete or technical learning and skills will they need?  What conceptual or executive skills will they need?  What values and networks will they need? We also recognize that university is a social experience that, in and of itself, is worth the cost. Thus we ask, what kind of social life does your child want? And, what kind of lifetime friends will make your child’s future feel enriched, engaged, and connected
