With the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) results released, students at The YCIS and YWIES Schools are preparing to disperse across the world to respective universities for their undergraduate studies. Deciding on which university to attend is not always easy, therefore, students often look to the expertise of the school’s University Guidance officer (UGO) when making this crucial decision. The YCIS and YWIES UGO Team comprise a total of 20 advisers with expertise in higher education. The counsellors hail from different countries and have strong professional backgrounds. Some served as former admission officers at British and American universities; others were university lecturers, teachers, coordinators, and counsellors.
