Our Senior School students are entering that exciting period of the academic calendar when they start receiving university offers. Over the past weeks Year 13 students have begun to receive offers from a range of wonderful institutions and will continue to do so throughout the remainder of the academic year.
At Dulwich College Suzhou, we understand that supporting students in reaching their future goals and aspirations is a continual process. Through working with our students, connecting with parents and collaborating with teachers and faculty, our counsellors are able to help students understand their place in post-secondary education. There are over 16,000 institutions of higher education in the world, and they vary greatly. University counsellors make it their mission to ensure that students understand not only how to find their perfect match university or college but to also guide them through the application process. With this in mind, it is our philosophy to help our students to find their “best fit” school. A “best fit” school is just that – a school that seems as though it will fit with every part of who a student is, and ultimately, who they want to become. As a result of our students’ considered approach and hard work, our Class of 2020 are already beginning to see positive outcomes from this process. Gordon T recently received two offers to pursue his passion for music at Royal Northern College of Music and Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Alice S through following her interests has gained an offer from University of Leeds to study Criminal Justice and Criminology. Furthermore, the College is proud to announce that so far this term, Senior School students have also received offers from Wellesley and Cornell in the USA in addition to Cambridge, London and Manchester in the UK.
Nigel Wilsonlock, Head of Senior School commented “Whilst we are rightly proud of the fact that our students gain offers from Oxbridge and Ivy League universities, we are equally proud when any of our students achieve the next step in their chosen journey having focused on the pursuit of their passions, capabilities and potential. We look forward to hearing more of these stories as the remainder of the academic year unfolds”.
Mike O’Connor, Headmaster is committed to the College team supporting all students to find the tertiary institution that is best for them. He states “Our students are dedicated and persevere to achieve their goals. It is our task to facilitate their journey and support their aspirations so that their dreams are realised. I am proud of our students’ success, it is a credit to them and their families.”
