PRE-APPLICATION CAREER PLAN
The pre-application career plan ensures that the student is informed about the university application process through a preliminary interview. In this way, the student understands what skills, academic exams (such as SAT, SAT Subject, ACT, AP) and out-of-school activities are required and plans accordingly. The number of interviews for guidance purposes can be increased at the request of the student.
It is absolutely necessary to know the language of education in English and / or the university to be visited for foreign university application. For this, the student should improve his / her foreign language with intense tempo until the application period. At this point Finest Academy only offers consulting services hizmeyitl not limited language school and the students as well.
The academic status of the student is analyzed and a plan is prepared to ensure future academic success.
The reason for this is that universities' academic grade point average takes the first place in the application evaluation process.
It is planned that the student will take different exams (such as SAT, SAT Subject, ACT, AP) that will be effective in university applications apart from the courses he / she has to take at school. It is also planned to participate in national and international exams, competitions and competitive events or projects.
Clubs are one of the activities that take shape in line with the interest of the student who is out of curriculum and academically binding. At this stage, it is planned to establish a club (s) that will make a difference in the school where the student is located. This stage may include not only clubs but also different institutions. This includes start ups, associations and institutes established for social service or innovation.
Evidence is collected that the student served the community in the resume, taking into account the region to which the student will apply. Social work studies reveal that the student is a world citizen rather than an academic-only competitive profile. At the same time, this process helps the student to obtain the master and experience that he / she will use in the application letters.
During the preparation period, the student will take long academic breaks such as summer break and semester break. Consultancy is continued in order to evaluate these breaks correctly and to contribute to the student's application profile from both academic and CV perspectives. In addition, it has been seen that such experiences have beneficial results in terms of students developing quality content and empathy ability for their application letters.
Throughout the application plan, the consultant helps and guides the student to create the most optimal and ideal application. The application plan includes the articles to be written in collaboration with the counselor and the student, CV preparation, the preparation, requesting and transmitting of the necessary documents (academic reports, test scores, teacher recommendation letters, passport and other documents that may be requested by the university).
Skilled EmploymentQualified employment deficit and search of countries is very important in university selection. As a matter of fact, education, scholarship, higher education and career opportunities are also affected in proportion to this quest.
Cultural Structure and ClimateEven if the quality of education is always kept in the primary plan during the university search process, the fact that the student is happy in the atmosphere to go is also a basic factor to be considered.
Leading SectorThe trainings given in the sectors that the country leads are also privileged. The fact that Germany is a leading country in engineering, Italy in architecture, France in cosmetics and Hong Kong in technology, also increases the quality of the education it provides.
Financial OpportunitiesAnother important factor that varies between countries is finance. The country's currency, economic dynamics and education fees play a major role in students' choices.
University - Industrial RelationsTheoretical education, practical education, research-based education and educational structures that prepare for the industry vary according to the education system of the country of destination. The student should choose the university and country, taking into account his / her expectations and goals.
Major SelectionThe student should know the choices even if he / she does not make a point shot in accordance with his own interests and knowledge. However, it is very important to be aware of all options.
Recommended StrategyThe student should divide the schools he / she wants to attend according to their departments as Dream Schools, Realistic Schools and Safe Schools. Imagination schools include schools that the student will be happiest without considering the limiting factors. Realistic Schools are the schools in which the student finds a high chance and satisfaction in case he / she cannot enter one of the Dream Schools. Secure Schools includes the schools that the student plans to attend in case they cannot enter their Dream and Realistic Schools as a result of the negative problems that the student cannot foresee during the application process.
Sorting EffectMany students respect the information provided by university ranking sites such as Times Higher Education, QS Ranking. Even if this information is not at all correct, they play big misleading tol for university selection. This is because these lists are prepared with commercial purposes in mind.
Language ProficiencyOne of the IELTS, TOEFL, DuoLingo, SAT tests should be taken considering the university's desired score.
Standardized TestsOne of the SAT, Sat Subject, AP, ACT, IB, A-Level, GCSE tests should be taken by considering the university's desired score.
Application Portal TrackingApplication deadlines for admissions and scholarships such as CommonApp, QuestBridge, Minerva and UCAS or from the university's own application portal must be tracked and required documents must be uploaded.
Curriculum vitae components such as extracurricular activities, Certificate Programs, Social Responsibility Projects, extracurricular scientific studies, extracurricular creative studies and Portfolio should be presented in an ideal format.
Application ArticlesApplication letters should be written on subjects that are standardized by the application portal (such as UCAS and CommonApp) and which are specifically requested by the university.
Scholarship ApplicationUniversity-specific scholarship applications must be made in line with the required documents.
Reference LettersReference letters should be obtained from the teacher (s), the advisor, and the mentor (s) outside the school.

How does the counseling process work?
The counseling process is based on negotiating between the student and the advisor. Plan-targeted interviews are held at the beginning of the career preparation plan and goals are set for the student. The student is free to request an increase in the number of interviews during the process following the plan. Undoubtedly, negotiations become more frequent in order to manage the processes such as collecting required documents, preparing application letters, and processing applications, in the most ideal way. Accordingly, a plan is created according to the regions and universities to which the student will apply. In addition, consultancy is not limited to one-to-one system. Physical or online conferences are held in educational institutions that bring their students' goals abroad.
