BeSO & College Counseling

 

With the dual diploma, the German International Abitur (DIA) and the High School Diploma, GISSV prepares its students for universities and careers worldwide. Making self-determined and conscious decisions about one's future educational and career path is a challenging task for students at the end of their school journey. With the diverse offerings of academic and career guidance, our expertise, and individual counseling, we support and accompany the students and their families in this decision-making process.
