Careers Guidance / Universities

With students now facing an increasingly competitive world for both university applications and careers, we recognize that the quality of advice for the next stage after school must be of a very high standard. Our Head of University and Careers Guidance, Miss Charlotte Vale, is responsible for overseeing the effective delivery within the school of top quality advice to pupils and parents regarding decisions concerning subject options, university destinations and career choices.

The students attending Beau Soleil come from approximately 45 different countries and have high aspirations regarding their university choices.
We are delighted to confirm that over 90% of our IB students have secured their first choice university places.  There are currently 5 students going to top 50 universities in the world, including University College London, ranked 7th in the world, the London School of Economics (LSE) and the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), with 3 more waiting to hear from other top 50 institutions.  
 
As in previous years, there is a clear trend for our students in both the French and International sections to follow career paths in Business and Management, with nearly half of the cohort going on to study business or related courses.  This is further endorsement of the importance of placing Entrepreneurialism at the heart of the Beau Soleil curriculum.   
 
A good number of students have chosen to remain in Switzerland, winning places at the highly competitive HEC Lausanne and at EPFL to study Business, Engineering and Computer Science respectively.    We are delighted too that students are following their dreams in the creative and liberal arts with places at New York University Tisch and other renowned US colleges.   Taking courses as diverse as Engineering to Geology, Forensic Sciences to Law, and  studying in wonderful  locations all around the world, the Beau Soleil   Class of 2016  certainly have a bright future before them and we wish them all the very best of luck as they embark upon the next phase of their education.
