HE Activities Jan & Feb 2023


As usual, things are very dynamic in the Higher Education department with lots of different HE activities and events. Let’s have a look at what our students have been doing in the past two months.

1. One-to-one HE meetings
Immediately after the Winter holiday, our Year 12 students started meeting with their HE counsellors regarding their coming university applications. With the guidance provided by counsellors, students have gained more ideas and information in order to further prepare their university applications.

2. HE Evening
This annual event was held on 19th January and it was great to see a lot of Years 11 & 12 students and parents joining us. Our admissions colleagues and alumni delivered talks which were very helpful and useful to our students who now have a better understanding about the different education and admissions systems.

3. University Visits
The University of Birmingham, Lancaster University and The University of Sheffield visited Sha Tin College in January to meet with Senior School students who are interested in exploring different studying options as well as higher education in the U.K.

Moreover, our dedicated medical applicants joined the talk organized by Medical Doorway this month in order to understand different professions in the medical field.

4. ESF University Fair
Over 140 institutions from all over the world participated in the annual ESF University Fair on the 2nd, 9th and 16th of February. Our students were able to talk to admissions representatives by visiting the booths as well as attending different talks such as “Writing your personal statement” and “Interview, portfolio and audition advice”. They all were very informative and helpful to our students and parents.
