Getting into the top university of choice is every student’s (and parent’s) objective and ambition. The main path towards this used to be the ability to get the highest grades possible through hard work and dedication. Times have changed and students, particularly in this part of the world, must realise that getting the best grades do not guarantee a place in their university of choice.
Universities nowadays are choosing students based on a more holistic approach, emphasising core competencies like communication, practical reasoning, creativity, character and a commitment to society. Sunway International School understands this and presents the Asia Leadership Youth Camp 2018, offering exceptional advice and learning opportunities to secondary school and college (diploma / pre-university certification) students aged 15-19 who are about to embark on preparations for university.
This multi-faceted programme has been developed by scholars who have first-hand knowledge and who themselves have completed programmes covering different disciplines at Harvard University, which is one of the most prestigious in the world. The camp will expose participants to many significant ideas and lessons including how to assess important life choices, formulating feasible plans for their academic and career paths, how to execute these plans for success, and even provide advice on how to write a compelling statement of purpose.
The benefits of this youth camp go far beyond academics as it will be led by six Teaching Fellows from Harvard University and other renowned universities. Subjects on developing new skills, maximising leadership potential, gaining confidence and learning how to create a dedicated, effective and ethical future leader will also be covered during the programme. This camp is a valuable investment into your child’s future, especially if they are aiming to enter the best universities.
Date: 2-6 July (five-day residential camp)
Venue: Sunway International School. Accommodation is included in the fees and participants will stay in twin-share rooms at the Sunway City campus.
