University Counseling & Careers

We know that our students need to be ready for a changing world that is more competitive than ever. Our programme of support, advice and training aims to help our students choose what’s right for them, and to prepare them as fully as possible for life after BIS.

Higher Education

There’s a world of choice out there, and studying for International A Levels means that their qualifications will be recognised both in France and internationally. Our dedicated and individualised service aims to help each student find the right path.

Popular destinations for our students include the UK, Canada (especially Québec), anglophone programmes in continental Europe, the USA, as well as staying in France.

We encourage them to develop autonomy in their research, whilst being there with advice and support every step of the way.


After IGCSEs and A Levels, many BIS students wish to apply to world-class British universities through the UCAS application system.

Our in-depth presentation and coaching supports pupils during the process, including:

  • Their choices of institution and entry requirements

  • How to correctly complete the UCAS application

  • Personal statements

  • References

Personal Statements

One of the most important parts of the application process, we train students in the planning and writing of a successful personal statement, offering one-on-one follow-up advice during the drafting stage. We aim to help them produce a great final version!

Career Preparation

At BIS we’re developing our programme of external speakers and events, including:

  • Interview training

  • Entrepreneurial Startup Challenge and Workshop

  • Speakers from different industries inspire and prepare students for the world after studies.
