Educational Counseling

Course guidance in the Lycée Français Victor Hugo is designed to support students in finding their career choice. They are guided throughout secondary school to build and finalize their educational and career guidance project.

Middle school students are introduced to the professional world through thematic approaches in several subjects. In 3e, they can present their internship and discuss their thoughts on career choices. This oral exam is part of the Parcours Avenir program (future career path) and is included in the Brevet (middle school diploma).

In high school, a significant amount of time is dedicated to deepen thoughts on the study and career path students want to follow. The latter are provided with valuable and individualized information to guide them year after year.

Under the principal’s supervision, this project is developed in close collaboration with, students, parents, homeroom teachers, the assistant principal and M. Morvany who is in charge of the course guidance program.

Major events are organized to help students with their course and career choices.


Pupils start a one-day work shadowing placement in 3e. The next year, in Seconde, high school students do a three-week internship designed to put their plan into action and set it against the reality of the professional world.
