Sixth Form

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 pupils have entered some of the world’s leading universities, including Oxford, Imperial and London School of Economics in the UK; McGill, University of British Columbia, and the University of Toronto in Canada; University of Melbourne, Australia; École Polytechnique, France; KAIST in Korea and UCLA in the United States. Our pupils are sought-after globally by the very best.

The College runs a comprehensive programme to help pupils to apply to university, including our own University Fair, and an interactive Careers Fair, where our pupils 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 lunchtime talks. We also expose our pupils to as much information and advice as possible, with the most recent events focussing on Art & Design.

We offer pupil access to our user-friendly online portal, Unifrog, for pupils to undertake some psychometric testing. This will provide a Myers-Briggs type profile and point them towards careers and subject libraries to assist in their post-IGCSE/IB decision-making process. We also use Springpod which is a platform that allows pupils the opportunity for virtual work experience. Springpod offers: live discussions with employers; an experience of workplace activities; insights into new skills and what it is like to work in that industry.

We pride ourselves in the constant personalised and individual support we provide. The University Guidance Department here at Marlborough College Malaysia takes its international context very seriously and makes every effort to prepare our pupils for the various international university application platforms, supported by the latest global university software. We run UCAS Personal Statement workshops, Mock Interview Mornings, and PSAT testing in preparation for the US admissions test, the SAT.

Marlborough College also runs trips to visit its sister school in the UK and tour many UK universities and join in UCAS Conventions. Trips are also arranged to the USA to visit some of the most famous and prestigious colleges in the world, and to appreciate the huge diversity of options available within the USA.
