Building a strong profile for your application

It takes hard work to get into your dream school.

While grades remain the predominant factor in the admissions process to top universities in both the US and UK, they only get your foot in the door. Beyond mere academic performance, admissions tutors are looking for evidence of intellectual and personal potential outside the realm of the classroom, curious about your own drive for growth and hunger for knowledge. To stand out from an ever-growing candidate pool, you will need to leverage your extracurricular / supercurricular activities and experiences to fashion a concise and persuasive application.

Join us on the 16th of July as Qi Han, a successful applicant to Yale and Oxford University, shares how you can strengthen your profile to boost your chances of application success.

Date: 16th July 2022, Sat
Time: 4pm-5pm (GMT+08)
