LEIPZIG INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL

LIS offers students of grades 11-12 guidance for their journey into life after school; whether it is higher education, apprenticeship, gap year or other choices. The university admissions and careers coordinator works with the class cohorts as well as with individual students to provide assistance in all aspects of future education and careers planning. This ranges from identifying strengths in both academic subjects and extra-curricular activities in order to help the student in his or her institution and course selection, to providing up-to-date information about international admission processes, deadlines and current events like regional educational fairs.
This webpage provides the central, go-to source of information and updates in university admissions and careers. Here, documents and resources can be accessed by students, parents and teachers aiming to enable a trouble-free transition between school and study destination or elsewhere.
