University Counselling

The Swiss American Academy administration organizes familiarization visits throughout the academic year to Swiss, UK and USA universities, giving students the opportunity to have meet admissions officers and current students and learn more about the facilities, living arrangements and academic delivery.

The Swiss American Academy offers great opportunities for students who have completed 12th grade to apply for US High school diploma achieve the highest SAT and GPA scores.

Depending on their ambitions and abilities of particular students students may apply to the highest-ranking Ivy League universities, with expert assistance from the college counsellors. We also assist with scholarship applications, supported by excellent academic results and/or an excellent record of sporting or other curricular activities which our team can help you present to maximum effect.

While a Swiss international school diploma or US High School Diploma, or the equivalent from other countries, together with a good SAT score, is sufficient to apply to US and Swiss Universities, Swiss American Academy graduates wishing to apply to British Universities need a good IELTS test result and must complete a one year Foundation Course (University Preparation) in the UK.

However, The Swiss American Academy offers the option of an accredited one-year university preparation course integrated into the 12th grade Swiss American Academy course. During the academic year students can study for and graduate with a US High School Diploma and a UK Foundation (University Preparation) course in Business, Marketing or Tourism & Hospitality Management.

Thus, the SAA offers the its graduates the unique opportunity to apply for, and choose from, places at top universities in Europe, the UK and the USA through the completion of one fully-integrated programme.
