Guidance Counsellor Tour

Guidance Counsellor Tour

This is a past event

The University of Aberdeen is delighted to welcome US and Canadian High School Guidance Counsellors on a familiarisation tour of the University from 2 - 6 March 2014.

The tour is an opportunity for you to see the difference at the University of Aberdeen. You’ll learn about the benefits of higher education in Scotland, experience what it’s like to be a student in Aberdeen, and on return you’ll be able to better advise your students about studying across the pond!

You can connect on Facebook with other North American Counsellors to hear about their experiences of Aberdeen. Click here to ask to join the group.

We think it’s very important for guidance counsellors to experience the University of Aberdeen and that’s why successful applicants will receive the Silver City Scholarship to make it easier for them to attend. The scholarship includes:

  • 4 nights accommodation and subsistence (all participants will have their own rooms)*.
  • $1000 towards international travel expenses

Participants are required to cover the costs of personal expenses and airport transfers.

*You may travel with a guest and they are welcome to participate in the Tour and its activities. Please note however any additional charges will be met by your guest.
