Our warmest congratulations to Kitty Y., a Sixth Form student at Harrow Shanghai, on securing an offer from the University of Cambridge. This comes hot on the heels of the fantastic news that fellow graduate Daniel L. has an offer to study Chemistry at the University of Oxford. These achievements highlight the great success of Harrow Shanghai in the 2024 university admissions season, continuing our proud tradition of sending students annually to Oxbridge.
This year’s application process for Oxford and Cambridge saw an outstanding 75% of our students receiving interview invitations, which is testament to their exceptional capabilities and the high calibre of education at Harrow.
Beyond Oxbridge, our students have also received provisional offers from prestigious institutions such as University College London, the University of Hong Kong, and King’s College London. Remarkably, every student who applied to university has secured offers from several top 100 universities (as ranked by QS World University Rankings). We are expecting many more offers from our students!
As for U.S. university admissions, congratulations to Isabella F. and Lauren S., who have been successfully admitted to Emory University (ranked among the top 30 in the U.S.) and Baylor University through the Early Decision process. We look forward to celebrating more achievements from our Regular Decision (RD) applicants soon!
One of Harrow Shanghai’s greatest strengths are our small class size. This enables subject and university guidance teachers to fully understand each student’s interests and strengths, providing comprehensive support throughout the university application process. This includes assistance with A Level subject selection, choosing universities and majors, crafting application essays, and preparing for interviews – we cover every critical step. Particularly during the critical Oxbridge application phase, our Oxbridge-educated teachers not only conduct mock interviews but also organise connections with educators from Oxford, Cambridge, and Harrow School London, ensuring our students receive well-rounded support and guidance for their interviews.
