University Advising

The process of selecting a university is an important step in a student’s education.  With so many options and requirements the task can seem daunting.  BLIS is dedicated to helping students get through this difficult task and start on the path to their goals.  Our University Advising department provides support for students applying to universities in Turkey, the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and numerous other countries in the world, always with an eye toward the best fit for the student. As part of this program, we have developed this portion of the website to assist students and families through the university application process.

Please also note that BLIS uses Naviance to plan for and monitor all student applications.  All grade 10 students and parents should have an account.  Please contact one of the counselors for more information.
