University Guidance

100% excellence

Our students are accepted at top universities worldwide benefitting from personalised support from our University Advisor.

Whether our students apply to universities in Europe, USA, Canada, UK or to remain in Italy taking advantage of the school’s links with LUISS University, you can be assured that they will receive the help they need.

Personalised support

The application process to universities around the world is a two-year-long exercise which sees our IB students working in close cooperation with our Librarian and Careers and University Counsellor. Through workshops, one-to-one meetings, university fairs and lectures, students are assisted in identifying their study area of interest and career ambitions. Our Careers and University Counsellor uses a number of tools to help students select the best universities and provides step-by-step support for each stage in the application process.

The highest individual points achieved was an impressive 41 points out of a possible 45 and 60% of our students were awarded a much-desired bilingual diploma, compared with an average of 30% globally.

In addition, our average grade of 4.95 is an improvement on 2019 results and is higher compared to the global average grade of 4.80. Impressively, our students also scored well above the global average in many subjects in the Language A and B groups as well as Sciences and Humanities, a reflection of the hard work and commitment of our students and teachers.

The Class of 2020 is ready to move forward with their higher education and their future is looking promising! We are very proud that our students have received offers of admission to some of the most prestigious universities worldwide.
