University and Careers Counselling

Mission Statement

The University and Careers Counselling Department is committed to informing, enhancing, and guiding the Mulgrave community in all aspects of post-secondary planning.

The culmination of a Mulgrave education lies in the options that become available to our students as graduates. Armed with a world-class IB education and a strong sense of self, Mulgrave grads are well-prepared for post-secondary life.

As a department, we work closely with both the student and their parents/guardians to help them refine their university search and determine what path should be taken in order for our students to be prepared to earn a place at their university of choice. This journey begins in the Middle School (Grades 8 and 9) with guidance embedded in Life and Learning classes. As students progress into the Senior School (Grades 10-12) counselling expands to include course selection advice based on the goals that students have set for themselves. Our university counsellors meet with each student to map out a detailed schedule which reflects personalised post-secondary ambitions.


Find Your Fit

What makes a university ‘the one’?

How do you choose where to apply and where to accept?

These are the questions many high school students grapple with as they make decisions about where to apply and which offer to accept. We asked our grads how they found their match. Their words emphasise the importance of looking past a ‘brand name’, of pushing aside pre-conceived ideas, and of understanding individual priorities.

Ultimately, its all about finding the right fit.

What We Do

The University and Careers Counselling Department works closely with students and their families throughout their years at Mulgrave to maximise a student’s ability to reach his or her highest potential and move into post-secondary life. Thus, we are committed to providing the following services and more:
