University and Career Counselling

The University Counselling Department at the Amman Baccalaureate School (ABS) is one of the strongest counselling departments in the Middle East. Established thirty years ago, the Department was designed to assist and support students and parents as they begin negotiating the confusing labyrinth of the university application process.  Highly experienced counsellors are available on a full-time basis to answer students' and parents' queries about entry qualifications, accessibility to degree programmes and availability of scholarships to universities in Jordan, the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and Europe, not to mention assistance in entering local universities and US and British universities located in Europe and the Middle East


Counselling students about universities and careers is available once they enter the Middle Years School and the Department offers the PSAT on an annual basis for students starting in Grade 8.  Career awareness is also offered and continues as they progress into the IB Diploma College. When students are in their first semester of Grade 10, advice is given to them about which IB subjects they need for certain courses at university, ensuring that students will be prepared for entering university two years later.


Special SAT preparation courses are given to students in Grades 10 and 11. The ABS is a closed testing site for SAT exams and the only open testing centre in Jordan for the ACT, an alternative exam to the SAT and SAT Subject Tests.  Grade 11 students begin serious university counselling in their second semester so that they can begin researching universities over the summer before Grade 12.


Our Facebook page ABS University Counselling Department is constantly updated by one of the counsellors so that students can learn about up-coming visits by deans of admissions, get hints on how to write personal statements and university essays, as well as reminders about deadlines that they must meet. These are only a few pieces of the wealth of information available to students online.


The University Counselling Department also includes a complete University Library, one of the very best in the Middle East, test preparation booklets, university catalogues, DVDs of universities and three full-time, highly qualified university counsellors available to answer all student and parent queries. One College Night is given by the University Counsellors each semester: one in the first semester for parents of Grade 12 students and one in the second semester for parents of Grade 11 students. Our University Counselling team hosts many university fairs at school throughout the year and has established strong ties with universities in all parts of the world. The students from our school secure placements in some of the most prestigious universities in the world due in no small part to the continuous and highly professional efforts of the University Counselling team at the ABS.
