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.

Colleges That Change Lives
Colleges That Change Lives (CTCL) began as a loose collaboration among the 40 schools profiled in Loren Pope’s classic book, Colleges That Change Lives. For over 20 years, our programs have given thousands of students and parents guidance in their college search. 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.

Webinar: Skills and Careers for the 21st Century: Where to from here?
Even prior to the pandemic, the 21st Century had started to require different sets of skills and attitudes in understanding what skills are important for rapidly changing industries. Students are expected to have a very different skills profile by the time they graduate from tertiary education. Interdisciplinary studies are becoming even more important in a world that is breaking down silos, where Accounting firms hire STEM graduates, and where Google looks for Humanities graduates. The session seeks to unpack just what we need to advise students on the skills and careers for the Digital Century.
