Sinarmas World Academy (SWA) has always believed in the importance of keeping our curriculum relevant to the future of technological advancement. Our support goes beyond providing the best facilities and programmes, by further exposing students to global standards and global challenges, thus providing them a platform to develop a strong sense of global citizenship.
As of 2017, there were more than 26,000 Universities around the world. Understandably then, finding the right university, and in the right country, can be very stressful. “One way to help you learn more about all the different options and find one that is a good fit for you is to go to a University fair”, says our University Guidance Counselor, Mr. Stanislav Sousek.
Sinarmas World Academy, as an International school with a solid track-record of university acceptances in hundreds of top international universities, with millions of dollars in scholarships, organized one such university fair on September 30, 2019. The 2019 fair included 62 universities from 15 countries, such as Hong Kong, the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Italy, Switzerland, Australia, Canada, Japan, the Netherlands, Germany, Spain, New Zealand, Malaysia, and Thailand.
In the different booths at the University Fair, universities provided information, answers to personal consultations, and application guidance. Some of the main attractions were the different workshops offered, which included:
- Applications to Hong Kong by The University of Hong Kong
- Getting into Top UK Universities by Kings College
- Study and Work in Canada by EduCanada
- Hospitality Management by Hong Kong Polytechnic University
- University Application Essays by The Ohio State University
- Creative Careers of Today by Savannah College of Art and Design
SWA is attractive for universities to recruit students from because it is a school that offers the IB Diploma Program and is also one of the schools that has an average high IB DP score of 36. “SWA students are desired by the university to recruit because of the great IB DP score,” says SWA MSHS co-Principal, Mr. Alex N.
Mr. Sousek also highlighted the fact that most of the university representatives are the admissions officers themselves, so students have the unique opportunity to talk to and meet the same people, who will probably be reading their application and making an admissions decision later on.
Quoted from Telegraph.co.uk in the article, Why the IB is the Perfect Passport to University, Roderick Smith as the Birmingham’s Director of Admission says, “IB students come to the university very well prepared for independent learning, which is what we expect of our students. The combination of subjects in the IB diploma means students get a well-rounded education. Scientists and engineers are able to write, while arts students numerate, but with no corresponding loss of depth,” Smith adds.
The quoted article above proves that IB DP is really important for the future education of students, and SWA provides the best learning facilities and professional teachers to support this learning process.
From the University Fair, students were provided with more information about the universities, different admission requirements, studying and working in different countries, as well as different majors and courses for hundreds of different career paths.
