YK Pao School is proud to share news on university offers for their first graduating class of 49 students, a stellar list of outcomes on a par with those of long-established leading schools worldwide. Some 55% of students in the graduating class were admitted or offered conditional acceptance to their first choice of university and 85% of students were admitted to one of their top three university choices.

ykpsThe universities to which the first cohort of YK Pao School students have been admitted or offered conditional acceptance are leading institutions ranging across a variety of countries and specialisms, reflecting the highly diverse range of interests and abilities of the students and embodying YK Pao School’s belief in best fit: finding institutions that are an ideal match for the student and his or her unique interests, skills and abilities.

This list includes some of the most highly regarded institutions in the world, including three early acceptances to Ivy League institutions with distinctive academic programs as well as the University of Oxford. Students were also admitted to prestigious art and design colleges, prestigious women’s colleges, liberal arts colleges and comprehensive private urban universities. Several students have been awarded merit scholarships including the prestigious Hesburgh-Yusko Scholars Program for leaders at the University of Notre Dame.

The list of US institutions offering places to Pao students includes: Bard, Barnard, Boston College, Boston University, Brandeis, Brown, Colby, Columbia, Dartmouth, Fordham, Franklin & Marshall, The George Washington University, Kenyon, Lehigh, Mount Holyoke, New York University, Northeastern, Pitzer, Purdue, Reed, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Tulane, University of California campuses (Berkeley, Davis, Irvine, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego, Santa Cruz), University of Chicago, University of Rochester, University of Notre Dame, University of Southern California and the University of Washington.

Acceptances to the selective film production programs at Emerson, Loyola Marymount University and Chapman were also received.

Students were admitted to a number of art and design colleges including: California Institute of Arts, Maryland Institute College of Art, Rhode Island School of Art & Design (RISD) and School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

In the UK, conditional offers include: University of Oxford, Durham University, Imperial College, University of Edinburgh, Loughborough, University of Sheffield, University College London, King’s College London, University of Nottingham, University of Warwick and more. These UK institutions are members of the Russell Group of 24 research-intensive, prestigious, world-class universities.

Acceptances in Canada: University of British Columbia, University of Toronto.

Pao students have a global perspective and willingness to pursue their own pathways, and this was clearly demonstrated in a number of applications which were submitted to universities in non-Anglophone countries in Europe, including BTK Berlin Design School (Germany) Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunsten (The Netherlands), University of Tampere (Finland), as well as Jönköping University and Linnaeus University (both located in Sweden). Pao students will also study at the overseas campuses of Northeastern University and New York University.

Congratulations to the tremendous success of the Class of 2017 – the first cohort of graduates at YK Pao School.
