Hence, there are so many questions: what, Where and Why, yet very few answers are convincing and honest:

pur

1- The student has a big decision to make and the decision can become overwhelming.

2- The student’s inability to reach a decision provokes feelings of anxiety.

3- The student can feel strong social pressures from peers and family while making his/her  educational choices.

4- The students anxiety can quickly turn to negative stress which affects his/her life, such as the ability to concentrate in class, sleep, eat and interact with others.

 PHILOSOPHY

 WP 20151029 001 1

An important academic component of orientation is to offer high school students the criteria they need to make the transition from high school to college/University.

By giving them a strong overview of academic expectations, students will be better equiped to meet the challenges of university life. Therefore, in order to present an accurate and truthful image GLOBE offers, both, academic and media components in our Orientation program.

“Guidance & Orientation programs leave a lasting impression on High School Students and their families”.

Top 10 British Universities

Top British: In terms of numbers of international students, the UK overall lags only behind the considerably larger US – and this popularity is unsurprising given the strong global reputation enjoyed by UK universities. An impressive 71 UK universities feature in the QS World University Rankings® 2015/16, with four currently ranked among the world’s top 10.

The University of Cambridge is currently ranked joint third in the world, while theUniversity of Oxford is sixth, followed by UCL (University College London) at seventh andImperial College Londonat eighth place.King's College London (KCL) and the University of Edinburgh are also in the global top 25, while theUniversity of ManchesterandLondon School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)are within the top 40. A total of 18 UK universities appear in the top 100, and another 12 make the top 200. 

 university of exeter

Exeter’s first appearance in the Complete University Guide’s top 10 was just 2 years ago and it’s managed to maintain its spot for the 3rd year in a row. Exeter’s rise to prominence has been spearheaded by its rapidly increasing graduate prospects and entry standards.

Located in the South West, attending university here almost guarantees you’ll get the lion’s share of England’s good weather – perhaps it was time spent day-dreaming in the sun that inspired J.K Rowling’s wizarding world.

9. Lancaster University

lancaster university chaplaincy centre spire and logo

After a brief 2 year hiatus Lancaster University is back in the UK's top 10. The university has been working and spending towards a better all-round experience for its students with its return to the top 10 attributable to increased Facilities Spend and Academic Services Spend - the uni spends £1,565 per student on academic services such as the library and computing, and £778 per student on supporting services such as sports facilities. 

For a top quality campus-based university experience, and quick access to the great outdoors (the Lake District is on Lancaster's doorstep) Lancaster University might be the one.

When it comes to universities in the Midlands, Warwick always comes out on top. Scoring highly for Entry standardsResearch and Graduate Prospects, you’ve got to seriously consider this institution for your university career. Warwick also features heavily in our subject tables, appearing in the top 10 for 19 different subjects - truly an all-rounder. 

6. University of St Andrews

st andrews university

Beautifully set against the backdrop of the east coast of Scotland, the country's oldest university continues to perform well under the intense scrutiny of the Complete University Guide. 

Despite its rural location St Andrews has quite a pull for our young minds, with over 30% of the town’s population being either a student or lecturer during term-time. Interestingly the university has produced more directors of FTSE 100 companies in proportion to its size than any other educational institution in Britain – now that’s food for thought.

5. Durham University

Durham University College 008

Not just a stomping ground for Oxbridge rejects, Durham is a high-performing university in its own right, as is evidenced by its consistent appearance in the top 5 of our university league tables – forget top 10.

Trust us, the city of Durham is not to be missed and if you are accepted for a place at Castle College you’ll literally be living in a castle. Add to this Durham’s outstanding reputation for research and teaching, you’re on to a winner.

4. Imperial College London

Imperial College London222

Imperial always places within the UK's top 10 unis and will be pleased to have regained its 4th place position in the 2016 league table. The university has made small improvements in scores across the board but most notably in Student SatisfactionEntry Standards, and Graduate Prospects

A specialist in science, engineering, medicine and business, and located in the get-up-and-go city of London, places at Imperial are highly sought after.

3. London School of Economics and Political Science

London School of Economics and Political Science

No surprises here. The top 3 placings have been the same for 4 years running now. LSE certainly doesn’t have a bad reputation when it comes to the Complete University Guide, having occupied a top 5 position since the league table’s inception all the way back in 2007 –  but now it’s safe to say the uni is brushing shoulders with Oxford and Cambridge.

LSE specialises in the social sciences and has a global focus, in fact the student cohort includes representatives from around 145 countries.

2. University of Oxford

Oxford University 2

Poor old Oxford, placing behind its adversary in the Complete University Guide league table seems to be becoming something of a habit. Let’s be fair though, 2nd place isn’t to be sniffed at and Oxford won this year’s boat race, in both the women's and the men's races – have that Cambridge! Oxford’s reputation is largely based on its academic prowess with it having developed some of the greatest minds of our time such as Stephen Hawking – and of course, the infallible Boris Johnson.

1. University of Cambridge

cambridgeunicampus11111

Cambridge pip Oxford to the post for the 5th year running. That’s 5 years in a row at the top of the Complete University Guide’s university league tables, an impressive feat to say the least.

World renowned for its excellence in teaching and research, and with rigorous entry standards, Cambridge looks set to rule the UK university scene for some time. This is the place to be if you hope to 1 day stand on the shoulders of giants such as Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin.

Top Belgian universities: 

Several of Belgium’s universities are regularly rated among the top 200 universities in the world.

It offers courses in 11 Belgian cities and remains an important center of higher learning and scientific research catering to more than 40,000 students, of which around 16 percent are international.

Top Universities in Canada 2015/16

Once you decide to study in Canada, you will realize that it’s a great future investment; cost   and quality effective. Studying in Canada will give you access to excellent education, a cultural diversity and most importantly one globally recognized degree. However studying abroad, just as in any other country which is not your own, requires prior financial planning and commitment before your departure.

Tuition Fees

One of the most important aspects of choosing an overseas study destination is the total cost in terms of tuition and living expensesCanada, therefore offers a reasonable price to knowledge and self-affiliation, for both national and international students.

Tuition fees in Canada vary across programs, universities and provinces. Generally degrees in professional schools like law, medicine and the MBA are ranked as the most expensive as in every other country.

The program duration in Canada ranges from 3 – 4 years for undergraduate programs and 1 – 2 years for graduate programs.

Before departing to Canada you have to make sure you’ve put some money aside for initial expenses, as part of the process as following:

  • Application fees $50 to $150 depending on the University.
  • Approximately 25per University due to authentication of documents required by the University (transcripts, recommendation letters).
  • Entrance exam costs around $ 200 a piece, depending on the field you are applying for. Usually students take this exam two times therefore plan on spending around 500 $ on this test.
  • Test scores like GMAT, GRE, SAT, TOEFL, IELTS have to be reported by the testing agencies (like ETS), which may cost up to $ 20 per University (an average cost for reporting scores of all tests you may have taken).

Canada is a big and assorted country even when it comes to expenses, so the money you will spend on University fees overall depend widely on the region you choose to live. The expenses also vary from the different study programs you are enrolled in, whether you are and undergraduate students or a graduate student and so on.
