CIS offers a unique opportunity to facilitate links between Guidance/University Counsellors and International University Admissions professionals who help support students in the transition from school to university. CIS works together with our members to support the best possible outcome for students interested in international higher education opportunities.
Through conferences, college & university tours and fair events, CIS aims to enhance communication and provide networking opportunities for guidance counsellors and colleges and universities around the world.
The CIS University Connection Registry is a free database resource where your students have the opportunity to connect with CIS member universities and colleges worldwide. Students can provide their information and contact details, as well as interests in study and financial aid need with over 500 CIS higher education institutions. These are fully accredited universities and colleges in 26 countries that are actively seeking students with an international outlook.
CIS Member Colleges and Universities recognise the unique intercultural competencies, skills and experiences of your students as well as the rigorous academic preparation and quality international education they have received. CIS Higher Education Members use the CIS University Connection Registry in their admissions outreach to connect with students all over the world who have expressed interest in studying a programme they offer or studying in their region. All participating universities/colleges sign a statement that they will use contact details only to send their own information/materials. Students from all schools are eligible to participate and there is no cost to the school or your students for using the CIS University Connection Registry.
To take advantage of this service:
- Review the online student registration form. Think about which students should submit profiles. (Students who will graduate and apply to university in the next 3 years are the appropriate audience.)
- Download a copy of the CIS University Connection registry (A4 and/or A3) poster to display on your school information board and/or guidance centre.
- Forward/provide this information or the direct form link above, to your students. Encourage and assist them as they complete the online form by providing schools information, address, CEEB code if applicable, etc.
