Higher Education Updates

Colleges & Careers Discussion Forum 1

On 13 September 2022, the Higher Education Office held our first College & Careers Coffee Discussion Forum for Academic Year 2022/23. The event was attended by parents of Sixth Form students. In this session, we discussed the roles and expectations, parent support and contribution as well as the application timeline for this academic year.

The event was well-attended and parents were engaged in a lively discussion about the topic. For parents who are not able to attend the session but would like to find out more, please scan the QR code to visit the Higher Education Firefly page for access to the presentation.


At this juncture, we at the Higher Education Office, would like to thank all parents for your support and we hope to see an even greater participation from you in our College and Careers Discussion Forums in the next academic year. The next Colleges & Careers Discussion Forum will be held on 15 November 2022 and we will be discussing the process of deciding on the right university.


University of British Columbia Visit

On 14 September 2022, Mr. Scott Lee, the Associate International Advisor from the University of British Columbia visited our campus to speak to our Sixth Form students about the latest developments in the university. For the first time this year, students engaged in a face-to-face discussion with a university representative about the different programmes available at UBC, the differences between the Vancouver and Okanagan campuses and the perks of living and studying at UBC. Mr. Lee also shared with the students the different types of scholarships available for international students and what they can do to enhance their chances of receiving one. Students were also given the opportunity to have a quick chat with Mr. Lee individually to find out why UBC would be a good fit for them.

Bangkok Prep can look forward to more university visits in the coming week, from reputable institutions such as Dickinson College (US), Schweizerische Hotelfachschule Luzern (Switzerland), Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (Hong Kong) and Temple University (Japan).

Upcoming Greater Bangkok Fair

In the coming week, Bangkok Prep, in collaboration with other international schools in Bangkok, will be organising the Greater Bangkok Fair where around 200 global universities will be participating. Year 13 students will be attending this fair so that they have the opportunity to speak to admissions officers from these universities on 21 September 2022.

In conjunction with the Greater Bangkok Fair, Bangkok Prep will be hosting the US Case Studies Evening on 22 September 2022, from 6.00pm to 8.00pm. During this event, participants will have the opportunity to collaborate with admissions officers from 50 US universities in a mock admissions exercise. Bangkok Prep students and parents, as well as those from other international schools around Bangkok are invited to join this event. If you are interested in taking part in this event, please refer to the information in this poster and register your interest.
