The Dulwich College Suzhou university and careers counselling team works with students across the whole school. We offer a holistic, student-centered approach providing social-emotional, university and career guidance. Students engage in The Dulwich College Success Plan, which is a personal enrichment curriculum that guides and encourages students to develop personal insight at an early age. This programme provides age appropriate learning and chances for self-discovery as an integral part of every student’s education.
Our university counselling programme starts in Year 7 as starts with self-understanding before shifting focus to university and career research in Year 10. From education about university systems, personal statement workshops, and leadership seminars, to building a philosophy of self-confidence and self-awareness, our programmes ensures students are in a position to realise well-informed dreams and leave school university and career ready, confident in their abilities to plan and guide their own futures.
Our student to counsellor ratio is guaranteed to be no greater than 30:1 in Year 13. As a result of both group and individual work, we ensure students choose universities and degrees that are most appropriate to their interests. We believe this leads to higher quality matches in university systems throughout the world, better experiences for our students at university, and enables above-average potential for long-term career success.
Dulwich students have the advantage of not only receiving personalised service from their campus counsellors but also benefit from the indirect support that comes from having 20 experienced counsellors with diverse backgrounds sharing ideas and best practices throughout the Dulwich network of schools.
