Pathways To Learning... Since 2005 Hong Kong Registered School 566985


Choosing your university

Secondary school (high school) qualifications are all about progressing to the next step. They determine whether you continue in academic study, vocational study or training, and to what level. If you take the highest level academic exams, you will be aiming to find a pathway to university.

Whether you take a full course of A-levels with ITS, just add one or two to your existing schooling or use ITS for tutorial support for your in-school syllabus such as IB, we are here to help you make university choices and applications.

ITS provides full counseling for your university choices in the UK, the US or both.

Some people use their university goals as a way to choose their A-levels. If this fits you, read through this page and then move on to Choosing Your A-levels in the menu above before contacting us for further advice. If you are already completing, or have completed your secondary qualifications, simply browse the material below and then drop us an email at [email protected].

Start by getting an idea of the universities or colleges that offer the course(s) you may wish to do. This link provides information and impartial advice: The Complete University Guide, an interactive site which allows you to alter the weightings of the different criteria to suit your own requirements and so create your own unique table. 

Or check out the information published by the Russell Group of universities: a guide called Informed Choices

Or go to this link from the UCAS website: Course Search

USA destinations:

If it is a American institution you wish to attend then you will make a much more individualized application. There are no restrictions on the schools you apply to however each one will need to be thought through carefully as they are all subtly different. A US application often needs even more counseling support. Again, ITS will help with all aspects including:
  • course choice
  • personal statement writing
  • writing of references
  • submission of exemplar work
  • subsequent advice regarding offers
