Our student advisors are a team of dedicated student welfare professionals. One of our friendly members of staff will be a main point of contact for each student during their programme.


Each student is allocated a student advisor and will be contacted by them soon after their arrival in Ireland or the UK. So our student advisors will meet their students within the first week of them being in the country. Then they will give them an orientation session, helping them to familiarise themselves with the school and the local area.


After this first meeting, each student will have a face-to-face meeting with their student advisor every 4 to 6 weeks*. This is an informal session, where the student and student advisor can talk over the experiences that the student is having. As a result, it’s a good opportunity for our students to raise any concerns they might have, and our student advisors will help them to overcome any issues they might be facing.

Following each face-to-face meeting, our student advisors will write a progress report for each student. For instance, detailing how the student is progressing academically, socially, and how they are finding their living arrangements. This progress report will be given to the student’s parents, so they have a professional and independent report on their son or daughter’s progress.

Student advisors can be contacted by students during normal office hours, and are contactable by telephone, text message or email. They are our student’s first point of call for information or anything else they need. Outside of normal working hours, students have access to a 24/7 emergency telephone number, so there is always a member of High Schools International staff available to speak to.
