Understanding the American University Application Process: with College Goals ages (12–adult) [VIRTUAL; RSVP REQUIRED]

27 March 2021 @ 16 h 00 min - 17 h 30 min

For teens ages 12–18 and their parents



Given the demands of the American university application process, students interested in pursuing higher education in the US are well advised to begin preparing early in their high school career, before they embark on their final two years of study toward the French bac or IB. What do families need to know for their students to be successful and satisfied by the university search and application process? How do students produce a strong and interesting US university application? College Goals’ counselor, Andrea van Niekerk, will address the complexities of the American university application system, with special attention to the process and mechanics. She will also take questions about applications to the UK and Canada.

Andrea van Niekerk served for a decade as Associate Director of Admission, with a focus on international applicants, and as Freshman Academic Adviser at Brown University, and as Residential Fellow in a dorm at Stanford. Still based in Silicon Valley, she now works with both American and international families as part of College Goals. Andrea has over 20 years of experience in college admission and academic advising. She is a member of NACAC, HECA and WACAC.

College Goals is a university admission consulting practice specializing in counseling families interested in higher education opportunities in the US and in English-medium universities around the world. The team of counselors collectively offers decades of professional experience in higher education. College Goals provides expert counsel and support throughout the college search and application process, including choice of appropriate institutions, test requirements, recommendations and interviews, essay writing, and the preparation of distinguished applications.
