Tertiary Studies and Careers

What can I do after graduating?

In order to make the right choice about higher education, students must be well informed and put a lot of thought into the decision. The parcours avenir, or the “Future Career Path”, at LCS is designed to enable secondary school students to satisfy these two conditions. The future career path is also the means to better understand the economic and professional world, to discover the diversity of professions and training available and to develop a sense of commitment and initiative.The quality of teaching at LCS, the support of the staff and the reputation of both the French Baccalaureate diploma and the IB allow our students to access the best higher education institutions throughout the world.

Where can I study?

The quality of teaching at LCS, the support of the staff and the reputation of both the French Baccalaureate diploma and the IB allow our students to access the best higher education institutions throughout the world. At LCS, the average ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) in the French Baccalauréat during the past 5 years has been 97.72, and the IB average has been 85.44 (UAC table conversion). The ATAR is used by Australian universities to rank and admit applicants into their programs. The ATAR result can vary depending on the university and the program students are applying for.

Educational Guidance - PRIO

The PRIO is the school’s Educational Guidance and Information Resource Officer. Our PRIO, as well as our pedagogical teams, support students in their orientation, providing them with information about careers and higher education systems. They also organise events for students throughout the year such as visits to schools or universities, visits to forums, etc.

The PRIO website contains a wide range of information about studying in France, Australia or abroad, as well as a calendar of important events, information about university open days, a job forum and much more.

AEFE Student Forum - Agora

In order to assist students in finding their way through the maze of programs, degrees and professions available upon finishing high school, the AEFE created the AGORA platform, the AEFE Generations’ Alliance and Orientation Network. This platform is designed to act as a forum for questions and discussion between current and past AEFE high school students. Network members can share their experiences in a forum, through video testimonials and interviews, and current students can read about the everyday lives of university students, advice about admission at different institutions, or even about what to think about when choosing your Year 10 options.

Excellence Major Scholarship

The French government, via the AEFE and MAEDI (Foreign Affairs and International Development Ministry), supports student mobility by granting Excellence-Major scholarships. These scholarships enable our best ‘bacheliers’ from French school abroad to enrol at an higher education institution/university in France. This Excellence-Major grant scheme enables to support around 800 students of foreign nationality during five years of study (in reference to the time needed to obtain a degree Master 2 or equivalent). Each year, 150 to 200 new scholarship students join this program. For a complete presentation of the scheme: please click here.
