This week has seen plenty of activity in helping students to access the next level of their education, something we take very seriously at BVIS.
Not only did students have the opportunity to meet with and hear the current ambassador to Vietnam, HE Giles Lever, about whom Nick Lee has written in his article this week, but more recently, we also had the Seattle Pacific University attend to meet with students. In the coming weeks there will be visits from universities in the US, Singapore and also in Canada, increasingly an attractive option for parents considering next steps for their children. The level of questioning and engagement by our students at both events was hugely impressive. One student in his questioning showed levels of perception, tact diplomacy and insight seldom seen even amongst adult audiences that showed just how well prepared cognitively and in character development that our students who continue through the full range of the educational programme.
That US, Canadian, Australian universities are so keen on International A Levels students is clear from the engagement of the students in relation to their studies, and in the confidence and poise in communicating complex ideas contained within the syllabuses. The range of International GCSE and A Level subjects on offer and the style and depth of teaching at BVIS helps to develop both of these areas to prepare students fully for university application and entry.
These opportunities are of extreme importance in informing parents and students about the options available and process to them for the next stage, and it is important to parents to see how we are supporting the next major decisions that students will have to make.
Recent footage from the Cambridge International Education website available here gives parents full confidence that their choice of educational path will lead to outstanding outcomes in the US, now one of the more popular destinations for students and families thinking about the next steps. Students really are in great hands with the visitors we are able to procure and with our experienced teachers, so committed to student growth and future university success.
Have a great weekend.
