Student receives top University offer

Earlier this month,  the Times Higher Education published its “Impact List” of “universities that are best placed to solve the world’s biggest challenges”

The list assesses universities against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), carefully calibrated to take into account research, outreach and stewardship.

The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are an important part of our programme here at The British School of Nanjing, helping students understand their place in the world and become instrumental in making it a better one. With this in mind, it was interesting to note how many of our students have chosen universities in this Top Ten as their destination for Higher Education.

Over the next few weeks, we will reach out to current and former students to ask what impact the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) had in their choices.

Seunghyeon Baek is currently studying in Year 13 and will complete his A-levels this term, before heading off to the university of his choice. Amongst his offers, Seunghyeon has been offered a place at University of Manchester (8th on the Impact List) in England to study electric and electronic engineering.


What inspired you in your choice of course?

“I was inspired by The Tanzania Seeway Project which was an opportunity to join other schools within Nord Anglia working with this organization. I had amazing experiences through the project. Installing solar power generators in local people’s houses and witnessing their lives without electricity gave me an insight into what I can do for them and inspired me in what I want to do.  Sustainability is a critical criterion for me when I chose universities since university is one of the major steps that I will go through for my future. I was impressed to see Manchester University in the list.”

Any advice for BSN students hoping to follow in your footsteps?

“Self-motivation is an important part of success in university. You should be motivated to do what you want. BSN especially extends that point - you are in charge of yourself. You should know what you are doing and therefore you should know what you need and what you want. Express your thoughts!”

We wish Seunghyeok all the best for a highly successful future!
