Event description

Description

As a student in today’s world, figuring out what to study, what your future job will be, and who you want to be is like navigating a bustling street market - you’ll need to hustle, you may weave in and out of the crowds changing course, and you’ll hear a lot of voices telling you what to do.

Should you “follow your passion” and pursue what you’re interested in (like Art History/Journalism), or should you study something pragmatic and secure (such as Medicine or Law)?

Do top universities prefer an all-rounder, or a top performer in one area? And what if you don’t have any strong interests - how can you stand out?

You’re not alone in facing these big questions. Every year, Crimson Education’s consultants work with students to tackle them.

Take a former student of ours, who is currently a freshman at the University of Washington. She struggled with her grades in high school and wasn’t really interested in the enrichment classes her parents enrolled her in. She did, however, have a dormant interest in raising awareness about mental health and childhood cancer. With the help of her Crimson consultants, she became an advocate for these issues. As a result, her high school experience became more meaningful, and she became a stronger and more compelling university applicant.

Using case studies like these, our consultants will show you how we worked with different types of students to help them find their goals and chart their paths.

For those targeting dream universities or programs in the US and UK where places are competitive, we will share insights from a former Stanford admissions officer about how applicants are accepted. This includes how they make tough “trade-off” decisions in light of too many highly qualified applicants.

Armed with this knowledge, you’ll be clear about how to maximise your time now instead of stressing out in your final year of high school or JC. The future is a big unknown, but it doesn’t have to be scary.

Find out how to start this exciting and unique journey - the journey of YOUR future!
