MAC Career Development Program.
The program’s purpose is to assist students in self-understanding and career exploration, emphasizing the link between academic engagement and their life paths after MAC. We ask students to take ownership of the search process with the goal of finding the university that best fits their academic and career interests, geographic preference, and personal goals and aspirations.
To this end we offer group and individual higher education counselling and assistance with the application process. The program will also provide professional development opportunities for the students to develop and strengthen life skills that will help them lead well-balanced lives.
We know that each student has his or her own path and we strive to help them take ownership of the process and focus on what is best for them as they narrow their academic and university interests, prepare their applications, make their final decisions and transition to their chosen university.
The counsellor helps students identify further education opportunities that match their strengths and interests and provides support and advice in completing the necessary applications.
Our counsellor also:
- conducts information sessions on university applications for different countries
- advises students on international tests such as IELTS, TOEFL, SAT and others
- arranges campus visits for university representatives
- delivers workshops to prepare for the university application process (writing personal statements, decision making on course and university)
- keep parents and students informed about secondary summer programs, university fairs and further education events
- conducts talks on “life skills” such as knowing oneself, time management and others
- coordinates the “Career Lunch Box Series” which features speakers that cover different topics
- manages Unifrog, which is a complete destinations platform that allows students to search for opportunities and make applications for their next steps
