How Wellington College China paves the path to higher education
This year, 11 pupils from our Wellington campuses in Tianjin and Shanghai have received interview invitations from Cambridge and Oxford Universities. Considering the challenges we have all been facing this year, this is no small accomplishment. But our pupils' successes have not been limited just to Oxbridge interviews.
Many pupils have already begun receiving offers from other prestigious UK institutions like University College London, King's College London, Imperial College London, University of Manchester, University of Warwick, University of Edinburgh and the University of Durham.
Furthermore, our pupil’s aspirations extend to other top universities right around the globe. Pupils in Tianjin and Shanghai have already started to hear back from their early applications – with acceptances already from Ivy League institutions such as University of Pennsylvania and other top schools including Carnegie Mellon and NYU in the United States and the University of Toronto in Canada.
At Wellington College China, seeing our pupils off to a quality university is a job we take very seriously, and we have put in place a comprehensive system of support to make sure it happens. Here are two examples.
