COLLEGE COUNSELLING

All NBHIS graduates enroll in colleges and universities around the world.

Our comprehensive University Advising programme commences for students in Grade 9. Experienced college counselors support and guide students in both English and Chinese as they select their IB subjects and navigate university admissions processes across many destinations.

Our student-centered approach encourages students to follow their passions and seek out the best options for their particular interests. Our software programmes allow students to monitor their applications and allow college counselors to upload documents safely and efficiently.

We encourage our students to enter competitions and to take up overseas summer programmes when available.

Each year, university representatives from highly-regarded institutions from many countries, including Australia, Canada, the UK, and the US visit our campus to meet our students and provide information on courses and pathways. Each year this number increases.

The IB Curriculum makes NBHIS students highly sought after by a range of universities around the world, including some of the most selective. Our students select their chosen universities alongside their counselors and with their parents. Many have several offers from around the globe. At university, our alumnae thrive, having been well prepared for independent study by NBHIS’IB diploma programme.

They report being ready to write and to research, ready to share dormitories and to join in campus life. Our graduates have done well in their undergraduate degrees and many are now in Master’s programmes and starting their own businesses and careers.

 

Information For University Representatives visiting NBHIS
Thank you for your interest in visiting us here at NBHIS.  Every year we welcome more universities to our campus, so whether you are new to our school or returning, we’re excited to have you.  Please review the following information about visiting us and then contact us with any questions you have.

Daily Visits
Our school day is typically busy, so we ask that you make your plans to visit as far in advance as possible.  Several times can be arranged, including:

 

  • Lunch time (11:25 – 12:10, daily): This time would typically suit only one visiting school.
  • After school (4:30 – 5:30, M. – Th.): At this time, we could accommodate one or multiple schools.
  • Homeroom time (Check with counsellors): Again, this would suit one or multiple schools.

Depending on the number of students interested, we can arrange a variety of  meeting spaces for your use, each with the necessary AV equipment should you wish to present something.

University Fairs
In recent years we have begun hosting our own college fairs and would welcome you to join one that suited your schedule.  These fairs typically happen in October, and we are currently planning an additional fair in the spring.  Additionally, we send students to local schools for university presentations there, so please let us know when you will be in the region (if your schedule doesn’t permit you to visit us personally) and we will make arrangements for interested students to meet you at one of your nearby stops.

Interviews and Portfolio Reviews
If you are willing to conduct an interview with a student who is particularly keen to apply to your school, please let us know.  If you are from an art and design school or program and would be willing to examine and give feedback about students’ current portfolios, please tell us.  We will create an interview/review schedule based on your availability and will make sure students will be available at the times assigned.

Contacting Us
To set up a visit to our school, or to learn more about our student’s college selection process, please contact Wynn Li (wynnL@nbhis.com) or Jing Wang (jingW@nbhis.com) at your earliest convenience.  Again, we look forward to welcoming you to NBHIS in the near future!
