Congratulations to all our students who have been offered places at their chosen universities for next academic year, many on full scholarships. We currently have students at, or about to go to, six of the top ten ranked universities in the world, which is tremendous.
Lukshmee Saravanapvan was offered places to study Economics at NYU, Dartmouth, Brown and Chicago in the US. Turning down the Ivy League, she has chosen to go to the University of Chicago, the 9th highest ranked university in the world, as its Economics programme is rated the second best in the world. Also in the US, Rosie Keegel, who is about to complete her undergraduate degree at Berkeley, has been offered places for graduate school at Brown, Georgetown and NYU and has chosen to go to New York.
Eleven of our students applied to universities in the UK and all of them received offers on course ranging from medicine to politics from universities including the London School of Economics, Durham, Warwick, Manchester and King’s College, London. Most of these places will only be confirmed after the students gain their A Level results, but students on Gap Years who have already sat their A Levels have unconditional offers. This includes Ahmed Ikram who is going to University College London to study Economics and Alexandria De Lima who has a place at the Royal Veterinary College in London.
The new NYU campus in Abu Dhabi has provided another great opportunity for our students. Nadeera Wickramasinghe, our first student there, has just completed the first year of her Biomedical Engineering course and will be joined next year by Amani Sahib and Nushkia Chamba, who have both been given full scholarships to study Bioscience and Engineering respectively.
Hong Kong remains a popular choice for our students: Vimukthi Caldera and Tarini Wijesekera have both been offered Entrance Scholarships to study Social Science, and Hafsa Siddique and Nafeesa Hamza to study Architecture. Elsewhere in Asia, Shihara Thaha and Haleema Rahman have been offered places at Manipal to study Medicine and Adharshan Ganeshalingam at Anna University in Chennai to study Engineering. Shinsil Park, who has a place at Yongsei University, is one of a number of students going to Korea, while several more have places in Malaysia.
Reema Mohamed has also become our first student to earn a full scholarship in New Zealand, and has just started her International Relations degree at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch.
In Australia,Vinura Fernando and Avijja Fonseka have places at Monash and Macquarie University respectively. Shweta Premachandra, meanwhile, has been offered a place to study Maths and Statistics at the University of Toronto, ranked the top university in Canada and 19th highest in the world.<< Back
