Beyond LIS

The Beyond LIS team aims to inspire and equip our students with the experience, knowledge and tools required to make meaningful decisions about their future education and career plans. The work of the Beyond LIS team falls into three broad and overlapping categories: Careers Education and Guidance, University Admissions and Applications, and Alumni Affairs.

Starting in Grade 6, students are encouraged to explore their strengths, values and interests and how these can fulfil longer-term career aspirations. From Grade 11 onwards, students are offered country-specific information sessions on Higher Education options, and are invited to university fairs and presentations.

Careers Education and Guidance

We offer psychometric testing; CV, cover letter and work experience workshops; host career and employer talks and invite students to participate in events run by our local, external partners such as the Arbeitsagentur, Stadt Leipzig and Lancaster University Leipzig. In addition, students benefit from 1-1 guidance from our team to help them identify and achieve their goals.

Work Experience

Practical  work experience is an opportunity to spend two weeks working in a company or occupational field of particular interest. The work that students do depends on the company, but should be varied and help them to discover more about the industry or sector and the roles within it.

If your company is interested in offering insight days, work experience or a talk about your organisation (or industry) please contact Nicola Edger at

Are you a university representative?

Being an international and diverse community means our students invariably enrol in a wide range of courses and universities around the world.

If you would like to share information about your institution, we would be delighted to welcome you at the School. To arrange a presentation (in person or virtual), please contact Birgitta Hall at
