THE Counsellor Resources

THE Counsellor is a resources platform for international school counsellors to help them advise students on career and university selection. Created in partnership with Common Purpose, UCAS, Unifrog, UCL, and Huron University, this ground-breaking initiative aims to amplify the voice of the amazing international school counsellor community.

The content and structure of THE Counsellor has been shaped by experienced school counsellors from the Times Higher Education International School’s Advisory Board ensuring a true “for counsellors, by counsellors” ethos. The majority of articles have been written by counsellors from around the world.

THE Counsellor is part of Times Higher Education’s three pillar strategy for school counsellors, also including the THE Counsellor Accreditation Programme (THE CAP) and the Regional International Schools Forum & Workshops. Discover how this unique platform supports the exceptional international school counsellor community.
