Dedicated resources

The educational guidance department revolves around the PRIO: Educational Guidance and Information Resource Personnel. An English speaking teacher is there to provide assistance in the application process for the English speaking universities.

The PRIO, with the Reference Teacher and the pedagogical team assist in:

  • providing information on jobs and training paths.

Events are organised throughout the school year, progressively from 6e to Terminale (Grade 6 to 12). School orientation is part of the subjects and is highlighted throughout the year with school orientation events. All these events are part of the “Parcours Avenir” (Personal Project for the future). 

  • in making the student decide his or her own educational guidance: to trust his or her abilities, to be realistic about his or her possibilities, to set targets and strategies of discovery, autonomy and self assessment, with academic success in mind.

Besides, in order to foster the success of the students, the Lycée Français de Singapour offers specific preparation classes to several exams (Sciences Po, Sésame, Geipi, etc.).

Study in France

Access to higher education in France is predominantly governed by the ADMISSION POST-BAC Procedure (APB), the national portal that coordinates admissions into higher Education and that simplifies pre-enrolment procedures for most of the higher education in France.
Some schools operate outside the APB and have their own admission procedures (competitive examinations, profile-based admission...). The Lycée Français de Singapour offers specific preparation courses for many competitive examinations (Sciences Po, Sésame, Geipi,…).

Throughout the year, from the APB portal, you can:
  • have access to information on trainings
  • research the training paths that you like

More information on the AEFE website : FAQ.

The documentation centre provides many documents published by ONISEP and has a subscription with CIDJ (Youth and Documentation Information), where students can carry out research (training paths, degrees). Students can also have access to online tools with interest questionnaires that provides guidance in their search and plans.

For more information, contact orientation@lfs.edu.sg.

Delocalised competitive examinations

Some schools operate outside APB and have their own admission procedures (competitive examinations, profile-based admission,etc.). 

The school has signed agreements to act as an examination centre for written examinations (group of schools). These sessions may be held if enough students register. The school does not register the students for the examination, it is only in charge of organising the written examinations. The students must register on their own on the relevant websites for competitive exams and pay the required fees.

To sit for other examinations, contact the Educational Guidance department (orientation@lfs.edu.sg) to study the possibility of organising sessions for written examinations and/or videoconferences.

Study abroad

Many students of the Lycée Français de Singapour carry on their studies in universities outside of France. A UCAS Adviser (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service) is here to help them in the application process for the English speaking universities. The UCAS teacher provides assistance in the application process and in the students’ choice in view of their grades (predicted grades, letters of recommendation, etc).    For more information, contact orientation.eng@lfs.edu.sg.

In the event of a withdrawal before the Baccalauréat

The AFFELNET procedure governs the placement of students in public high schools and some private high schools under ministerial agreement, in some public or private agricultural high schools, and sometimes in some CFA. The procedure is mainly for the following students: • 3e (Grade 9) students for a placement in general or technological Seconde (Grade 10), or vocational Seconde and in first year of CAP;  • Seconde (Grade 10) students for the placement in technological Première (Grade 11), sometimes in general Première (depending on the academies). For these students, the request to bridge into vocational Première or those who exceptionally wish to repeat their year, the procedure is done through AFFELNET.

Events

  • A career fair is organised for 4e to Terminale students. 
  • A student fair is organised for Première and Terminale students. 
  • Many evening themed events are organised for studies in science, humanities, literature and arts. 
  • Several universities and schools regularly come to the school: French (ESSEC, EDHEC, universités de technologie, Universités parisiennes, Sciences Po, …), Canadian (UT, Concordia, …) or European. 
  • Every week a school orientation magazine is sent to the parents to recap the school orientation news at LFS. If you wish to have a personal interview or to contact the school orientation: orientation@lfs.edu.sg ou orientation.eng@lfs@edu.sg.
  • A communication platform dedicated to students is offered as of september to accompany them in their educational guidance, whichever it is.
