Pursuing the IB or Swiss Maturity Diploma at Our Bilingual School
ENSR offers students the chance to choose between academic programmes based on their future goals. High school students work toward the Swiss Maturity or the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma. The Swiss Maturity diploma is delivered in French and accepted anywhere in Switzerland, making it a good option for students who want to attend a university within the country. For those looking to continue their education internationally, the IB diploma is a good path, as universities accept it all around the world. This option is delivered in English, French, or bilingual to further define students’ language needs for their future goals in their education and careers.
Accessing Student Guidance Services
Student guidance services at our Swiss international school help students decide which diploma to pursue based on their passions, aspirations and family considerations. Beyond this, the university guidance service at ENSR provides advice to students with regard to their higher education choices and applications for institutions both in Switzerland and abroad. By providing students with access to university open days, local information sessions and university presentations, students can familiarize themselves with the options that may be available to them for the next step in their education. Through these events, students can speak directly with admissions officers from various Swiss and European institutions, making an impression and establishing a network.
Making the Right Decision for University Destinations
Guidance from our bilingual school extends past university preparation and into making the right decision on which university to attend. Students may consult with our university guidance counsellor on a one-on-one basis to try to determine the best opportunities available for each student. Taking into consideration the family’s unique situation as well as the student’s desires and goals, our guidance team helps students find the right university for them. Whether students want to stay local, discover a new country, enroll in a specialty programme, accept a scholarship, or otherwise, they will have the support they need to make the decision that best suits their dreams for their future.
