The University Counselling service is provided by the Anglophone Section to help students make informed choices about further and higher education, and their future careers.
Key features of the service include:
Access to Unifrog: an online platform that enables students to explore thousands of English-language courses offered at institutions across the world. It also offers information on career choices and cross-references them with the universities that offer relevant courses. Students, with support from university counsellors, are able to organise and manage their university applications through the platform.
Four part-time university counsellors, all of whom are teachers in the Anglophone Section.
As many of our students choose to pursue further studies in France at French institutions the Section also offers advice and support in this respect, particularly for non-French families who are new to the French system.
Each year the Section organises an "Alumni Meeting" where former students are invited to give a presentation on the study and career paths they have followed since leaving CSI Lyon. We also have an expanding network of alumni around the world, many of whom are happy to share their experience directly with current students.
Where do they go and what do they do?
Within a year of the completing their OIB, all of our students move into higher education. Many of our students choose universities in English-speaking countries, particularly the United Kingdom and North America. The map below shows where our former students have chosen to study, across the world.
