HEO update – events and seminar

Posted: January 20, 2017

Summer Programmes – Plan early

In order to develop a strong profile for university applications,  it is definitely beneficial to plan ahead. Making good use of  the summer holidays is just one excellent way of doing this. Gaining work experience at a younger age can open up valuable opportunities. Attending  summer programmes can encourage students to explore their interests and enhance their self confidence ultimately developing a strong and interesting university application.

We have invited several excellent organisations to speak with students about a variety of exciting options available. Students are strongly encouraged to attend these events to gain an understanding of what is on offer.

University Visits, Events and Seminars in HK

One of the key aims of the HEO is to provide students with valuable resources to research a wide range of exciting opportunities. One way we do this is to regularly post events and seminars happening around HK and organise academic professors and key admissions staff  to visit DC to provide you with a clear insight into the admissions process and the academic and cultural ethos of each particular institution.
