These include the University of Cambridge, London School of Economics, Imperial College, University College London, Warwick, Durham and many others in the UK, Northwestern University, Duke University, Carnegie Mellon and others in the U.S., and the University of British Columbia and the University of Toronto in Canada.
Within Asia, we have placed students at some prestigious Korean universities, including two students at KAIST, one student at Yonsei, one student who will be studying medicine at Kwandong University, as well as offers from the well-respected Korea University.
Hong Kong has also been a popular destination with our graduating students, with quite a few opting for Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), Hong Kong University (HKU), and the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Several other students have returned to Europe to apply for placement to domestic universities from their home countries.
As always, the IB Diploma from BISS Puxi has opened up university options for students all over the world and in considering university options, I always work really hard with each student and their family to find the right fit for each individual.
Our current secondary students have returned to school after some excellent summer camp and work/internship experiences over the holiday. These experiences are not only valuable in themselves, but often help students figure out their future academic interests and perhaps even potential career interests.
I would like to remind all Year 13 students to contact me for an appointment if they have not already done so. Year 13 students should regularly look at the school’s calendar to note when universities are visiting our campus and various Higher Education related events are taking place. There are already quite a few planned for this month starting with our University Launch Session scheduled for Friday 29 August.
I look forward to working with you all in the coming months and finding you the best Higher Education option for each and every one of you.
