  • A school guidance counsellor is available to individual students seeking assistance with personal matters
  • A Year level Dean can help with personal or academic issues
  • The Director of Studies can help with academic questions.
  • Parents can seek assistance from a school interpreter in our main languages
  • University counsellors give individual advice on how to apply to universities around the world.

At AIC our university entrance preparation programme offers specialist university counsellors, SAT preparation and interview coaching, giving AIC students the best preparation for the top universities.

University Counsellor UK and the rest of the world

The IB Diploma Programme is very well known and highly respected internationally by university admissions officers who understand how well the Diploma Programme prepares its students for tertiary study.

AIC graduates applying to UK, Asian, European and Australasian universities are assisted in the process by a specialist counsellor who gives personal advice on the choice of universities available and on application procedures, to ensure that students are thoroughly prepared. By sending the counsellor to liaise with the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge and other prestigious universities in the UK, AIC has established positive relationships which have resulted in excellent acceptance successes in recent years.  

AIC is also pleased to regularly host representatives from the best universities in Australia such as the Universities of Melbourne and Brisbane, and has also been visited by prestigious institutions in the UK such as the University of Glasgow.
