As part of our Beyond LIS programme, we hosted the SRT University Fair in September where 30 universities and colleges presented their courses. Representatives from universities in countries such as the UK, the Netherlands and Canada, as well as universities located in Portugal and Switzerland and even Singapore, advised our students in Grades 9 to 12.
Students and parents were given the opportunity to personally meet Admissions Officers from universities in Europe and the USA. A few of the diverse tertiary institutions included the School of the Arts UIC Barcelona (Spain), John Cabot University (Italy), Rīga Stradiņš University (Latvia), Thomas More University of Applied Sciences (Belgium), and the University of Manchester (UK).
The Beyond LIS Team provides our learners with support regarding future education and career planning. In the categories Careers Education and Guidance, University Admissions and Applications as well as Alumni Affairs we identify individual strengths and provide up-to-date information about relevant topics such as career advice and planning and university guidance.
The University Fair is only one part of what we offer our students. Every student has different needs when it comes to determining a path after graduation, especially since everyone has different prerequisites.
The Beyond LIS Team takes into account the diversity of students and also offers individually tailored counseling. They link to the world of work, and also stay in touch with our Alumni. Please read more about the fantastic work they do here.
