Congratulations to the Class of 2017 - Bangkok Prep

Congratulations to the Class of 2017

Applying to university is an exciting and daunting task for any young person. Deciding on the university that best fits your needs takes time, extensive research and much discussion with parents and the University Guidance Counselor.

This year the Year 13 students’ diligence has been very successful and of the 33 students 23, at the time of writing, have secured places in a total of 17 different universities in six countries. Four students are taking a gap year, one is joining the army in Singapore and five are still deciding, but are expecting to get the offers that they want.

The most popular foreign country destination has, once again, been the United Kingdom, with seven students going there to attend some very prestigious universities. The Netherlands is becoming even more popular than ever, since 90 percent of their courses are taught in English and the cost of living is low and so five of our students will be going to some of the best universities in Europe. We also have students going to study in the USA, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Thailand.

Bangkok Prep students are interested in a wide variety of subjects from aerospace engineering to drama and theatre studies. Engineering is the most popular study area followed by psychology and medicine.

Before deciding on their top choice students get many offers from around the world and in total Bangkok Prep had offers from 45 different universities. Many of these offers came from very prestigious universities, some of which are in the top 50 in the world, with one in the top 10.

The top 10 offer was from Imperial College London and the top 50 offers included the University of California, Davis; New York University; the University of Edinburgh; Kings College London; Bristol University; the University of Hong Kong and the University of Manchester.

The gap year students are taking some time to reflect on their options and spend some time doing internships and work experience or travelling before going to university next year. They are already planning their applications.

Bangkok Prep is very proud of all the Year 13 students and the offers they received as well as the choices they made and we wish them well in the next stage of their lives.
