University Guidance at Marlborough

Marlborough College Malaysia (MCM) prides itself on being one of the leading schools in Asia terms of pre-university support, advice and results and it is certainly getting the results. Consistently high achievement in IB along with outstanding application support has meant that students have entered some of the world’s leading universities. Based on the QS rankings of 2018, MCM students received offers from 24 of the world’s top 100 universities, including Oxford, Imperial and LSE in the UK; McGill, UBC, Toronto in Canada; Sydney, Melbourne and the University of New South Wales in Australia and UCLA and Purdue in the US. Our students are sought-after globally by the very best.

The College runs a comprehensive programme to help students to apply to university, including our own University Fair, which is attended by universities from throughout the globe, and an interactive Careers Fair, where our students benefit enormously from the vast array of expertise and experience of our hugely supportive parent body. The College is very fortunate to have regular visits from international university representatives, who deliver highly informative lunch-time talks.

We also host roadshows to expose our students to as much information and advice as possible, with the most recent events including Art & Design and International Scholarships. We offer the Morrisby Psychometric Profile to help inform our students’ post-IGCSE/IB decision-making process regarding future options. We pride ourselves in the constant personalised and individual support we provide.

The University Guidance Department here at Marlborough College takes its international context very seriously and makes every effort to prepare our students for the various international university application platforms assured by the latest global university software from Unifrog. We run UCAS Personal Statement workshops, Mock Interview Mornings, PSAT training and testing in preparation for the US admissions test, the SAT. Marlborough College also runs an annual trip to visit its sister school in the UK and tour many UK universities and UCAS Conventions, as well as a hugely exciting trip to the USA to visit some of the most famous and prestigious colleges in the world, as well as to enjoy the brilliant bright lights of New York and absorb the scintillating energy and power that is Washington DC.
