Over the past three years one third of NLCS Jeju students have gone on to attend university in the US, another third to the UK and the rest to other destinations around the world. They are lucky enough to attain places at some of the world’s best universities including Ivy League, Oxbridge and Seoul National. The central objective of the University Guidance Counselling (UGC) department is to support students in making successful and well-informed applications to universities around the world. Many of our students and parents expect to make ambitious applications to the best universities, and the UGC team embraces this ambition.
The Class of 2017 (88 students) will be joining our alumni at some of these illustrious universities and we have already had some great Early Decisions from the US including Princeton, Johns Hopkins, University of Chicago and University of Michigan. US universities will begin to announce their regular admissions results in March and we hope to see more exciting offers.
We are also incredibly proud of our students who have received offers from UK universities. Our students have been offered a total of 7 places at Oxbridge, all for different subjects, for example Medicine at Cambridge and Music at Oxford. NLCS Jeju students also had significant success at University College London (UCL) with a total of 14 offers to date. UCL and other UK universities operate admissions on a rolling basis and offers will be continually updated so we hope for more good news for our students.
Another feature of the applications of the Class of 2017 is diversity; they have applied to universities in Germany for the first time and in increasing numbers to countries like Canada and Hong Kong. Our Hong Kong applications have doubled since 2016 with a total of 44 students applying to universities in the famous city.
Bo Young Kim, NLCS Jeju University Counsellor said “Our team is excited to work with future graduating classes and looking forward to supporting a diverse range of higher education ambitions. We also look forward to building increasingly strong links with universities and raising the profile of NLCS Jeju.” Mrs Kim added, “We are privileged to be a part of this significant stage of the students lives.”
