The number of students aged between 3 and 18 enrolled in international schools around the globe continues to grow. In Bangkok alone, there are numerous schools that offer a high quality English language education, following a variety of curricula such as British, American and IB. Coupled with an international outlook, such schools are balancing academics with performing arts, creative arts, music and sports.
And student from Bangkok’s most competitive international schools are achieving success.
At Shrewsbury International School Bangkok, for example, the Class of 2017 boasts an incredible track record of success:
- 89 students secure over 370 university offers
- 170 Offers to 32 of the World’s Top 100 Universities
- UK offers include Cambridge, LSE, Imperial, UCL, Kings College and Edinburgh University
- US offers include Yale, Berkeley, UPenn, UCLA, Columbia and NYU
- 1st Choices destinations also include Canada, Thailand, China, Japan and Netherlands
- 47 different first choice universities, including 9 first-time choices for Shrewsbury students
This June, 89 students from Shrewsbury will have completed their A-level examinations, looking forward to the prospect of starting a brand new chapter in their lives at some of the most renowned universities around the world.
Many will head to high profile universities in the UK and USA, as referenced above, but the wider picture tells a story of incredible variety. Nine students have secured first choice offers to universities never before attended by Shrewsbury graduates and which, if all goes as planned, would bring to 200 the number of different university destinations since 2004; statistics that underline the high regard that universities have around the world for both the British Curriculum’s A level qualifications, and for the calibre of applications that help set Shrewsbury students apart.
“These offers go to demonstrate not only the talent and hard work of our students, but the incredible choice that a Shrewsbury education is able to provide”, comments Robert Millar, Head of Academics at Shrewsbury.
“Our teachers and specialist advisors, particularly in the Higher Education team, give our students and their families the support, advice and confidence they need to make the subject and university choices that are right for them. In turn this allows our students to get the most out their education at Shrewsbury and beyond, and the best possible chance of achieving their goals. On behalf of the whole Shrewsbury community, I wish all of our graduating class, and their younger counterparts who are currently sitting their AS Level and GCSE exams, the very best of luck”.
