University Visits

University representatives visit our school regularly throughout the academic year to share with our students about their universities and admission requirements.

Below is the schedule of university visits for academic year (2017/2018). The schedule will be updated regularly (upon confirmation with university representatives). Students and parents are welcomed to sign up for the sessions that they are keen to attend. For logistical purpose, please sign up at least two days before the session.

Whenever possible (with permission from the universities), we will share their presentation slides on this website.
