Get a place in the most prestigious universities


Proof of the success of our guidance programme, each year graduates of our international school enter some of the most prestigious universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, McGill, EPFL, University of Geneva, Lausanne Hotel School (EHL), Classes préparatoires aux Grandes Ecoles (France).

Self-knowing and self-development


The main focus is on self-knowledge. Psychometric testing is offered to all students at the age of 15-16, in Year 11 (English section) or Seconde (French section). Our private school has been working for several years with "Inspiring Futures Organisation", a foundation specialised in the guidance of students from 15 to 23, who carry out the testing.

Testing guides students to a better understanding of their interests, abilities and skills, and helps them define or confirm, their choice of higher education.

Help with application procedures


Career counsellors guide students through the often complex application procedures for the various university systems in Switzerland, France, England, the USA or elsewhere in the world. Individual help is given to each student to complete their applications to the universities of their choice, including submission of personal statements and essays. Timely preparation for additional Admissions tests and Language tests is factored into each student’s programme. Predicted grades, full grade transcripts, letters of recommendation and full references that provide an holistic overview, are all sent according to university deadlines and individual submission requirements.

In most cases, our private school graduates receive offers from more than one university. Particular attention is paid to ensure that students submit several applications to ensure access to university directly after graduation.

Our international school maintains direct contact with many tertiary education institutions, such as the Lausanne Hotel School (EHL) and Bocconi (Milano).

Careers Convention : Annual Meeting


As a complement to the guidance programme, IIL organises a Careers Convention each year in the autumn which is attended by 70 or so professionals representing local and international companies and organisations. Students are able to meet them and ask questions, learning from their first-hand experience in a wide range of different career fields in Geneva.
