Early University Offers for our Class of 2020

Although we remain at the early stages of the university application process, we are proud to reveal some of our initial college and university offers for BIS HCMC’s Class of 2020.

Over the last few months, many of our Year 13 students have been receiving responses to their applications from Higher Education institutions around the world. This stage of the cycle is an ongoing process that will continue during the next couple of months as colleges and universities finalise their decisions. However, even at this relatively early juncture, we are very pleased to report that many exciting offers have arrived from leading colleges and universities around the world.

UK & Europe

In terms of UK applications, BIS students have received over 110 offers up to this point and we estimate that this figure will continue to rise as we move through the academic year. Our students have already received conditional offers from a range of leading UK institutions including the following Russell Group universities:

  • University College London (UCL)
  • Imperial College London
  • King’s College London
  • University of Edinburgh
  • University of Warwick
  • University of Durham
  • University of Bristol
  • University of Manchester
  • University of Sheffield
  • University of Leeds

In mainland Europe, successful applications have also been made to the increasingly popular Erasmus University Rotterdam and Groningen University in the Netherlands, in addition to a scholarship offer from design school IED Barcelona.

United States

Despite this early stage of the university application process, BIS students have already received acceptances from a significant number of colleges and universities in the United States. These include:

  • Dartmouth College
  • Berklee College of Music
  • Otis College of Art and Design
  • New York University (NYU)
  • The New School
  • School of the Art Institute Chicago,
  • Tufts University
  • University of Michigan
  • Pennsylvania State University
  • Ohio State University
  • Michigan State University
  • George Mason University
  • University of Arizona
  • Syracuse University
  • Elon University
  • Drexel University

We are looking forward to seeing what further US acceptances our students receive over the next couple of months.

Rest of the World

Multiple students who applied to Hong Kong have received offers from HKU, HKUST and Lingnan University and although the Canadian application deadline was only a month ago, some of our students are already holding acceptances from the University of British Columbia (UBC), Queen’s University and Simon Fraser University. We expect further offers to be received from Canadian institutions over the next 6 weeks.

Therefore, even at this relatively early stage of the response process, students at the British International School Ho Chi Minh City are holding some very exciting offers from a diverse range of global Higher Education providers and we are confident there will be many more to come. In terms of scholarship and financial awards, at the time of writing BIS students received offers of funding amounting to approximately 400,000 USD with this figure certain to rise as the remaining responses are sent to students.

The British International School, Ho Chi Minh City offers all students the support of a dedicated College and University Guidance Team to ensure that students have the necessary knowledge and skills to make the right choices regarding their future.
