It has been a joy to be in contact with our Year 13s over the past several weeks as both Early and Regular admission university acceptances have rolled in. To date, we are averaging over 4 acceptances per student which shows the quality of their caliber and recognition from top institutions in the world. Within our class, we have received acceptances to top universities in Canada, The United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, The United States and Hong Kong so far with future offers expected from Australia and Singapore.
Our cohort of students plan to study in diverse fields including Pre-Medicine, Economics, Fashion and Management, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, Music and the Creative Arts, Liberal and Political Studies, and Sports Management to name a few. They have done particularly well in gaining university entry and we are thrilled to see their success with a number of scholarship offers.
A few noteworthy acceptances include: (UK) University of Warwick, UCL, University of Manchester, University of the Arts London; (US) University of California, Boston University, Syracuse University, Pratt Institute (Canada) University of British Columbia, University of Victoria, University of Toronto and Simon Fraser University (Hong Kong) The University of Hong Kong and a full four-year scholarship to New York University Abu Dhabi in the (United Arab Emirates).
We wish our students the very best as they finish their international baccalaureate work, obtain their YCIS diplomas at graduation on May 28, 2020 and prepare for outstanding opportunities throughout the world in the year ahead.
