Tanglin once again hosted the UK University Roadshow on Friday, 1 March, with 24 participating universities. The event was open to students and their parents, providing an opportunity to ask questions on degrees, academic facilities, funding, student clubs and societies, accommodation, community and more.
Alex, Year 12 said: "Location is very important to me, so I'm seeking information on areas around the university as well as specific course requirements. It's useful to be able to speak directly with the universities at school. I'm keen to find my 'best fit'."
Ingrid, also Year 12 commented: "I'm planning to go to university in Australia. However, it's great to see some alternative options just in case I want to broaden my horizons!"
A representative from the University of York added: "These international events help to bring the university to the students and their parents. It's an invaluable opportunity for students to find out about different entry requirements, courses available and more generally, life at university. We also find it useful in beginning to build relationships with students and providing early, detailed support with the process of applications."
The UK University Roadshow is one part of a series of workshops, enrichment lectures and presentations to students and parents encompassing the differing university application systems, programmes of study, pathways and career options. Tanglin also hosts a multitude of university fairs each year, a five-day work experience programme with local businesses in Singapore for all Year 10 students, a Bi-annual Careers Fair and we have interns every autumn to assist in reading essays, applications, enrichment studies and personal statements across many subject areas.
"Tanglin has a dynamic, teamwork approach towards supporting students, with faculty staff, parents and alumni supporting a myriad of events. The strength of our guidance is in our community." Zoe Williams, Head of Careers and University Guidance.
