Event description

Description

Does your child want to apply to US or UK universities but you have more questions than answers?

Then come to this free breakfast get together at the beautiful Claremont Yacht Club where US and UK university experts from Crimson Education will be on hand to help fill in the blanks.

Topics covered include:

  • The anticipated cost of overseas study
  • The support your child could expect from overseas universities
  • The challenges of applying overseas
  • The benefits of an overseas degree in the employment market

This breakfast is strictly limited to the first 20 people.

About Your US and UK Experts, Duo Sun and Sam Bi:

Duo is currently a third-year student at University of California, Los Angeles, double majoring in business-economics and statistics. Duo was heavily involved in extra-curricular activities in high school. He was section leader of two choirs, regularly attended and contributed to Model UN events (eventually being selected as a part of the 2015 THIMUN delegation from NZ), played a major character in the 2014 school production, and organised numerous fundraisers and cultural events on top of participating in multiple science competitions and conferences.

While all this was going on, he was still able to stay on top of his studies and graduated as Dux of his school in 2014. Duo has had many years of experience in tutoring and is currently working with Crimson as an Academic Advisor.

Sam Bi:

Sam graduated from Kristin School in Auckland, New Zealand, achieving a 99.95 ATAR and Excellence Endorsement. Sam studied at the University of Melbourne and Melbourne Business School on Scholarship, pursuing a Bachelor of Commerce in Finance in addition to a Masters degree. Whilst in Melbourne, Sam also studied abroad at the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California.

Outside of academics, Sam has undertaken multiple pro-bono consulting projects geared towards alleviating poverty, led a variety of University Societies and also has competed and came second in a Management Consulting based International Case Competition.

As an academic advisor at Crimson, Sam hopes to steer students towards the best-fit pathway and provide insights of how to overcome the traditional shortcomings experienced by young Australians in applying to elite overseas institutions. After experiencing the difference in education between Australia and the US first hand whilst on exchange, Sam is an advocate of the liberal arts structure bespoke to the US and believes that the opportunities of studying overseas is unparalleled.


If you have any questions about the event or how to support your child to study overseas, you can email the General Manager of Crimson Education’s Perth branch, Simon at s.fasolo@crimsoneducation.org.

Please note, we completely understand if you are unable to stay for the full duration of the breakfast. The start and end time is flexible but please allow at least 30-45min to ask any questions.

Student Workshop: The summer holidays are a great opportunity for students to prepare their applications. As such, there will be an in-depth US and UK application workshop being held at the Peppermint Grove Library on the evening of the 15th for students wishing to apply overseas. Registration is $15 early-bird and $30 regular admission. Parents attending the breakfast seminar will receive a special discounted link in the confirmation email to register their children for free.
