University Guidance and Careers
Marlborough College Malaysia is fully geared towards the support of pupils applying to universities across the globe. In 2016 we had our first graduating cohort (41 pupils) and they received offers from 24 of the world’s top 100 QS ranked institutions with many going on to high level courses.
The majority of our pupils apply to UK universities but we will provide support and guidance to any world destination and we have had sizeable numbers apply to the US, Canada and Australia, with others applying to New Zealand, Singapore or locally in Malaysia. We have also had individual pupils apply to Korea, The Netherlands, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong and Ireland. What is clear is that pupils from Marlborough College Malaysia are highly sought after by the world’s top institutions.
Support at every stage
From advising on IGCSE choices in the Shell to helping with Post-IB result applications, Marlborough College Malaysia supports pupils throughout the Senior School on their journey to help them make competitive applications to some of the best universities. Support is led by the University Guidance Coordinator and HMs provide help at every stage. In addition to being a UCAS centre, an ACT examination venue and a Bridge-U pilot school, all pupils in Hundred sit the Morrisby Careers test to help provide guidance.
Events and trips
Marlborough College Malaysia is a market-leader in the provision of events and trips. Each year we run a large University Guidance Fair to enable institutions to exhibit to our pupils. We run trips to local events in Malaysia and Singapore, run an Oxbridge preparation camp with other international schools and hold our own very successful careers day. The highlight, however, is our annual trip to our sister school, Marlborough College UK to complete a joint skills course as well as to visit UK universities. We have also run two successful trips to visit US Colleges – both East Coast and West Coast.
The University Guidance provision at the College is excellent and we are very proud that many of our graduates are having a fulfilling time at their chosen university.
