University Webinars

SSIS University Guidance (UG) counsellors help our Senior School students on all aspects of their university admissions processes. Although university admission officers from around the world are unable to conduct face to face introductions, our UG counsellors are constantly on the lookout for university webinars, which are great resources for both students and parents.

You will have the opportunity to speak to university admissions staff and have your questions answered during each session.

Take a look at the compiled list of upcoming webinars to find out more and to register your place.

In 1996, the colleges and universities formed a non-profit organization to keep Loren’s message alive – the college search should be about finding a list of colleges that are a good academic, social, and financial fit. The non-profit has 45 member colleges and universities; each member institution has been profiled in at least one version of the book.

NYU Adu Dhabi

Friday, October 9, 2020 at 5:00 PM until 6:00 PM Arabian Standard Time

When students are thinking about higher educational opportunities, they are rarely thinking about the Middle East. However, over the last 10 years, NYU has established a strong presence in the region with NYU Abu Dhabi. With over 1400 students from over 110 countries, we have created a community of students who have excelled both academically and socially, and in careers after NYU Abu Dhabi. In part, due to the resources and opportunities offered by our campus and global network, but also because of the experiences that they’ve had living and learning in the UAE. 

This is an opportunity for counselors to ask questions and learn more about life in the UAE and the experiences our students have living there. This will also be a chance to hear directly from our students, and learn why they chose NYUAD for their college experience.
