The Universities and Careers Department at Uplands (UCD) is pleased to introduce BridgeU. BridgeU is a comprehensive college and career planning tool for both students and their families. Uplands students begin using BridgeU in Year 10 to explore options for work experience and build a CV, and then again in Year 11 when choosing their Sixth Form subjects. They do this utilising career interest and personality inventories in the BridgeU program.
NOTE: BridgeU is new to Uplands (May 2018). There will be a transition period over the next few months. Thank you for your patience.
In Year 12 students start their search for universities and careers. BridgeU assists them in building their CV’s, drafting personal statements and keeping a college notebook. It can serve as on online notebook allowing them to keep the application process organised and easily accessible. Up to date information on occupational growth and salary/wages are available on the site. The individual student file is open to both students and their parents to enable discussion during the application process right up to Year 13.
BridgeU is also the primary vehicle the UCD use to communicate with Universities around the globe.
As BridgeU is new to Uplands (but used by hundreds of International Schools) students will begin to create logins and passwords as early as Year 11. If you have any questions, or need some assistance with the application process, please contact Mr. Phillips.
