Careers Panel

The aim of the Careers Panel aimed at grade 8 students is for students to meet with experts in various fields in order for them to find out the answers to their questions on specific professions. We can see from the interest shown in the careers panels – which feature guests from various professions such as architects, journalist, lawyers and doctors – that our students want to learn the ins and outs of different professions directly from experts in the field.

 

High School Visits

• Üsküdar American Academy
