Oxbridge and Ivy League University Offers for YCIS Students

It certainly looks to be another exciting year for the Year 13s at Yew Chung International School of Beijing (YCIS Beijing). By now, several of YCIS Beijing’s future graduates have received offers from world-class universities across the globe, including the University of Cambridge and University of Oxford. With many of US universities set to start sending offers this month, including potential offers from Princeton and Harvard, the list of prestigious university offers only looks set to grow.

However, some US universities have already extended their offers to some of YCIS Beijing’s eldest and finest. Sherry Gu is set to study Economics at the Ivy League University of Michigan, while Daisy Chau will pursue her dream course of art history at the Ivy League University of Pennsylvania (UPENN), her number one choice when she submitted her university application. The students have all worked incredibly hard to achieve their dreams and deserve a great deal of credit for their efforts.

These offers are a culmination of a huge amount of research and preparation that is put into the University Guidance Program at YCIS Beijing in which students work with the school’s University Guidance Counselor. It is never too early to start thinking about university. However, it is important that time is given for students to develop their own interests and abilities. Ryan Jordan, University Guidance Counselor at YCIS Beijing states: “I formally start working with students regarding University Guidance during Year 10 (age 14). I’d suggest for parents to talk to their children about what subjects they are strong in as well as something they have a passion for, and take an active role in how they are developing both socially and academically.” During the later years of secondary education, the considerations for university selection are focused on in rigorous depth.

Congratulations to all the students for their wonderful achievements and good luck to those waiting in anticipation of their incoming university offers.
