University Planning



Welcome to the new University Planning section of the MEF International School – Izmir website! Our goal is to help students and families become more familiar with the international university admission process. We want to do all that we can to support students in achieving their post-secondary goals. We hope that this new section of our website will help families work together to consider post-secondary options and navigate through the university application process.


At MEFIS-Izmir, university planning goes beyond completing university applications. At the start of secondary, we help students consider their university and career options. Students are encouraged to consider their interests, strengths, and passions through thoughtful discussions, meetings, and surveys. We organize an annual Career Day for students to learn about various professions and an annual Shadow Day for students to experience a day on a job site. As students prepare to graduate from MEFIS-Izmir, we guide and assist them with all aspects of university research and application, including essay writing, application completion, and decision-making. We also provide information regarding standardized admission assessments such as the SAT, ACT, TOEFL, or IELTS.  


Secondary students are encouraged to visit Mrs. Vanessa DiCarlo’s office to look through university information packets from around the world or make an appointment to meet with her to discuss post-secondary interests and options. Parents are welcome to contact the Counsellor, Mrs. Vanessa DiCarlo using school contact information with any questions or concerns regarding their child’s post-secondary plans.
