I think BSJ is the perfect choice for any student because of the support, the different communities that you are exposed to and can join as a student.
Welcome to the BSJ University Hub
We have a dedicated space in the centre of the Secondary School with counselling offices, a reception area and a presenting/workshop area for our many university visits and parent and student workshops which run throughout the year.
We begin working with students in Year 9 and continue to work with students each year until Year 13; therefore students have a comprehensive curriculum to ensure students are well prepared for their future choices whether that be selecting their IGCSE or subjects or writing university essays or making a short list for their university applications.
A common myth among students and parents that I'd love to debunk is that one should go to a high school with an American curriculum to be accepted by an elite US university. From my experience, that is definitely not the case.
Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, my university counsellor was always there to work hard with me to fight to secure my offer at my dream university.
My counsellor exposed me to different university destinations, allowing me to secure a place at a globally-ranked Top 10 university.
BSJ did not only offer me the best academics, but also helped me in developing skills and qualities which would be useful beyond school!
I think the best thing about the university office at BSJ is that the university counsellors genuinely care about students
It can be extremely difficult to balance the demands of the IB Diploma and the rigorous application process for university. Yet, at BSJ, the support that I received from my counselors made it much easier than it could have been.
BSJ has a team of university counsellors that provided me with the support that was not just limited to applying to the universities; I was even able to understand where I saw myself living in my next academic chapter.
