Higher Education Updates – 7th October 2022

University Exploration Day

Students are invited to join a virtual CIS University Exploration Day on 22 October. All students will enjoy an exclusive keynote with international student alumni, artist and Forbes 30 under 30 winner, Maria Fragroso. Then they can meet with CIS member universities to learn more about the programmes they offer and their application process. Each university will have a virtual booth which includes information about the institution and the opportunity to ask questions. 

 

The event is designed specifically for students considering creative higher education programmes and careers. They’ll learn from admissions staff and faculty in panel sessions on these topics and more:

  • Art portfolio preparation: tips and tricks
  • Demystifying unique creative course from UX to Sustainable Product Design
  • Larger liberal arts universities vs smaller art specific universities
  • Career futures in the UK and US

Unifrog University Fair

Students in Year 11 and Year 12 attended a Virtual University Fair hosted by Unifrog on Thursday this week.

Representatives from universities around the world were available to share more information about their courses and to answer student questions.

For many of our students, this was their first experience of attending a university fair. They were really engaged throughout the event and found their interactions extremely useful.

The next fair will be the Canadian University Fair, taking place in person at Bangkok Prep from 8.30 – 10.30am on Monday 10th October.


Taejai Internships Talk

On Tuesday 11th October, we are very fortunate to be hosting the CEO of Thailand’s largest digital fundraising Platform, Taejai, to speak to interested students about internship opportunities tackling social issues. 

The talk will take place in the Sixth Form Centre from 12:45 – 1:15pm on Tuesday.


Parent Event: Making it in Medicine

Parents are invited to attend this free virtual event on 12th October:

Medicine has always been a popular and competitive career choice for students and this is only increasing. In fact, medical university applications were up 20.9% on the previous year in 2021, with factors like job stability, progression opportunities and a strong earning potential contributing to student interest.

Join us as we hear from leading medical experts about the ways you can help your child stand out in their journey into medicine. This parent event will discuss:

• The key skills required to pursue a career in medicine, including ways to build, develop, and present these attributes to universities and employers.

• The variety of opportunities and roles available in medicine and how to get there.

• A breakdown of the application process and some top tips to help your child excel against the competition.

The timing of this webinar is not ideal for Thailand’s timezone, but if you register, you will receive a copy of the recording to watch after the event.

University Visits last week

Bangkok Prep was fortunate to have hosted a number of university representatives last week. We had representatives from The University of Hong Kong and the School of the Art Institute Chicago, as well as PSCM, Chulabhorn Royal Academy. Our students had the opportunity to learn about the different campuses and also got their art portfolio professionally reviewed. Our very own Bangkok Prep Alumni, Pam and Mos, who are studying Medicine at PSCM, Chulabhorn Royal Academy, also shared their experiences with our students who are interested in pursuing medicine.
