Stream Program

For students entering Grade 12, they are encouraged to follow our UIS Streams. UIS breaks down the necessary courses and makes strong recommendations for courses a student should take to meet the admission requirements for the University program of their choice. For the electives, you can choose other courses available at UIS.

For students wishing to attend college, a separate counselling session is required to ensure that the students have all the required courses to meet the admission requirements for their program.
