College Counselling

Gyeongnam International Foreign School realizes one of the most important decisions in a student’s life is choosing the right college or university.
GIFS graduates go on to post-secondary studies, the majority of which attend high-ranking universities in the United States, Europe or in Asia.
Gyeongnam International Foreign School provides the guidance, tools and opportunity for students and families to prepare to successfully enter some of the most competitive universities in the world.
