University Guidance

With 100% of B.D. Somani graduates attending colleges and universities worldwide, great care and attention are given to supporting students throughout their career selection and university application processes.

The College Guidance team has decades of experience and stays abreast of the latest developments and best practices in school counselling and university admissions. Our counsellors work closely with High School families, either individually or in groups, to help cultivate a sense of empowerment, independence, and direction toward students’ chosen futures. The department also publishes a bimonthly newsletter, “The High School Advisor”, which provides timely information aimed at demystifying the exciting careers selection and university application processes.

  • Group and individual sessions

  • Mock interviewing
  • Interactive workshops on a variety of topics
  • Presentations by university admissions representatives
  • Onsite administration of the SAT and other college entrance exams
