University and Career Guidance Counseling

At LICS, our University and Careers Guidance Counsellor provides assistance to students throughout the Secondary School. In terms of helping them navigate their educational and career choices, we have designed a comprehensive counselling programme. It encourages our learners to explore their interests and strengths, develop careers preferences, prepare necessary skills and knowledge, and support them to make well-informed decisions.

We aim to deliver the concept of “Best-Fit” for Higher Education, as we believe all individual learners are unique.  Over the course of the year, LICS students meet with our counsellor during weekly careers lessons (Year 12 and 13 students only) and have access to individual meetings and such supportive initiatives as our annual careers carousel. We welcome our parents/guardians to schedule meetings with the counsellor and participate readily in our university-related information sessions. During recent years, we have invited worldwide universities to visit our school and talk to our students. Due to COVID-19, it is unfortunate that we can only provide virtual university sessions this year. However, we look forward to welcoming universities back on our campus in 2021.

Meet with Our Counsellor – Ms. Michelle Mi

I joined LICS in August 2019 as a University and Careers Guidance Counsellor. Before that, I have worked at international schools in Bangladesh and China. I have been teaching as a primary teacher for seventeen years before I became a college counsellor in 2013. My qualification includes a Bachelor of Education from Beijing Normal University and the Certificate in College Counselling from the University of California, Los Angeles. It is my pleasure to work with the students from this part of the world. For the past year, I have successfully sent our graduates to the universities in the UK, Canada and Australia. I look forward to having a great year with the Class of 2021.

Universities wishing to work with us

Although we can only offer virtual visits under the current circumstance, we welcome universities across the world to visit us on our campus. This is a great opportunity for our students to be more open-minded while they are making application decisions. You would be expecting to give information regarding the admissions process in general, majors/courses, and questions for international students in particular. You are more than welcome to visit other high schools in this area and we are happy to assist you.

Currently, we are planning the LICS Higher Education Fair 2021. For more details, please contact Ms. Michelle Mi via
