Important dates for October

“What do you want to be when you grow up?” It's a question often asked of students, while parents are often left worrying about the answer. Thankfully, though, the topic is expertly addressed by our new partner, Lifology, which even offers parents the opportunity to become Lifologists themselves (see details below).
The My Path to Uni Hub is also pleased to announce free on-site services provided by IDP Education available to all GEMS students from any school in the network. A representative will see students and parents in person and after hours at GEMS Wellington Academy - Al Khail in Dubai, starting from 27 October 2019 (Ts&Cs apply).
Finally, don't miss the opportunity to meet with over 30 Canadian colleges and universities as we host the EduCanada Fair 2019 on 27 October 2019. Canada has increasingly become one of the top post-secondary destinations for GEMS students - here's your chance to find out why.

Psychometric & Coaching

What Lifology offers to GEMS students:
  • Comprehensive psychometric assessments mapping students against 52 different personality types, enabling students to gain a deeper understanding of themselves, their work environment preferences, and their preferred learning styles
  • Personalised suggestions for suitable career options and their appropriateness in terms of global career paths
  • Individualised career coaching sessions carried out by trained Lifologists
Lifology is the world’s first Career Accelerator for leading teenagers to a meaningful future in which they can enjoy happiness, fulfillment and purpose. Lifology believes that setting “the right people on the right career track at the right time” is the most potent formula to attain its mission. This improves individual, family and community lives and thereby makes our world a better, happier place to live in.
