The College Counseling Department assists students and parents at MEF International School and MEF National School maneuver their way through the international university admission process. The goal is to help students gain admission to the colleges and universities that best suit their ambitions and aspirations anywhere in the world. In addition to college preparation, the college counselors give assistance to students with career planning.
