Oxford, Cambridge, NYU and more… ’24 grads from Wellington College International Shanghai are going places

Once again, Wellington College International Shanghai is pleased to announce that another Wellingtonian has received an offer to study law at Oxford University.

“Receiving the offer, I felt shock at first, but overall I feel elated,” says year 13 pupil Coleman. “I believe Oxford chose me because of my drive. I demonstrated my desire to learn about the subject I am passionate about and my desire to improve myself and society around me in my personal statement and interview.” 

One more great news is that another year 13 pupil has received an offer to study Natural Sciences at Cambridge University. This is the third year in a row that Wellingtonians have received Oxbridge offers.

As the top British school in Shanghai, Wellington College International Shanghai is also beginning to see a steady influx of offers from other highly rated schools in the UK, US and Asia, like Kings College London, New York University, the University of Manchester and the University of Hong Kong. Not only that, several Wellingtonians have secured offers from some of the world’s best art schools — Parsons, Savannah College of Art and Design and the School of Visual Arts (SVA) to name just a few!  

“Congratulations to our pupils on these outstanding achievements! I am immensely proud to see so many of our pupils secure early offers to study at some of the world’s finest universities. Their success reflects their exceptional dedication and hard work as well as the unwavering support from our teachers and Higher Education and Careers team,” said Brendon Fulton, Master, Wellington Shanghai.   

“These offers, of course, are just the beginning. Many decisions are still to come from the regular round of applications in the US, UK, Europe, Canada, Singapore and Australia. When the university offer season kicks into high gear, we look forward to sharing even more of their stories and successes,” said Dr Charles Debieux, Head of Wellington Shanghai Senior School.

Part of the journey also includes hearing some of the great stories that come from Wellington Alumni who have already or are making their way through some outstanding institutions such as CambridgeCornell or Caltech, with many coming back to share their experiences with the current Sixth Form to encourage them along the way.

“We often find our pupils find immense value in hearing from the peers in years before, often those that they looked up to, inspired by their pathways and journeys. We have our Global University Fair to look forward to this season as well, where we have many of these great institutions in person as well as alumni and career professionals coming in to engage our pupils, helping to make that connection between university and career clear,” says Joshua Beard, Director of Higher Education and Careers.   

Once again, congratulations to those year 13 pupils on a job well done!
