Claremont Colleges Information Session

Posted by heo

The Claremont Colleges

We invite you, your students and their families to learn more about The Claremont Colleges – Claremont McKennaHarvey MuddPitzerPomona, and Scripps Colleges – a consortium of five undergraduate institutions located in one square mile in sunny Claremont, California. Our distinct colleges, also known as the “5Cs”, are united by a spirit of collaboration and connectivity that influences academics, athletics, and student life. With shared resources across the consortium, like the Claremont Colleges Library and over 250 clubs and organizations, students at the “5Cs” experience the best of both worlds: the ability to attend a small, tightly focused college while also enjoying the benefits of a larger college or university.

Join us for our upcoming virtual information session to learn more about both our shared and institutionally unique approaches to a liberal arts education. Please forward this invitation to your students and families!

Thursday, July 8 at 3:30 p.m. Pacific Time
5C Information Session
This session provides an overview of the Claremont Colleges and an introductory understanding of each individual college. For more detailed information about each college please visit their respective websites.

Registration closes 24 hours before the event start time. Event details and Zoom link information will be emailed to you after registration. There is a 1,000 person limit for the event and there will be a waitlist should you register after capacity is reached. Once you are placed on the waitlist you will be notified via e-mail if space becomes available.

Please note:
 if your students are on the mailing list for multiple Claremont Colleges, they may receive this invitation more than once. They only need to register once for the virtual event.

We look forward to seeing you online!

Study Medicine in the UK and USA with SGU: Webinar 1st July

Posted by heo

Study Medicine in the UK and USA with
St. George’s University

Join St. George’s University School of Medicine and Medical Doorway during this virtual event on 1st July, 2021 for students looking for a future in medicine with entry into SGU’s 5-year MD program. Guest speaker Dr. James Coey, Course Director, Associate Chair and Associate Professor in Anatomy at St. George’s University in partnership with Northumbria University, will cover academics, admissions, and scholarships. We will also hear from SGU Alumna Dr. Tatum Jackson, MD ’20, who will share how SGU has helped shape her success.

The five-year medical degree program at St. George’s University, the premier Caribbean medical school, is designed specifically for students with Advanced Level or International Baccalaureate credentials who have a desire to become a doctor. SGU students have the opportunity to begin their medical education with SGU in Grenada, the United Kingdom, or India, with the three paths featuring the same curriculum and provide a strong foundation for SGU’s future physicians. The last two years have the option of doing clinical rotations either in the US or the UK. St. George’s University is truly an international institution and has contributed over 18,000 physicians to the global physician workforce, with students, graduates, and faculty from over 150 countries. They have practiced in every state in the US, as well as in more than 50 countries.

St. George’s University has been providing the world with highly trained doctors for more than 40 years. Founded as an independent School of Medicine in 1976, SGU pioneered the concept of international medical education. No other medical school in the world provides more new doctors to the US healthcare system*.

Students joining this virtual information session will have the opportunity to participate in a live Q&A and will hear about the next steps of the application process and how they can start their journey to becoming a doctor in August 2021 with the Grenada pathway, or September 2021 when choosing the UK or India pathways.

*Data as of April 2021

We would be delighted for you to join us on 1st July from 11am (UK) for this unique opportunity to ask questions direct to the Medial Doorway team and St. George’s University in Grenada.

UniFest Clearing and Confirmation Hub

Posted by heo

The UniFest Team wanted to make you aware that we are planning on holding three UniFest clearing events to target the results days for IB, HKDSE and A-levels. Although we hope that your students will not need to use the clearing services, we want to make sure that we are here for them and happy to help them in whatever way possible.

Our first briefing session will take place on 30 June 2021 at 19:00 Hong Kong time.

Whilst the 3 sessions will be tailored slightly towards the IB, HKDSE and A Level results days, the content for each briefing will be similar, so students are welcome to attend any one, or multiple briefings.
To register for the event, students can visit our Eventbrite page. This can also be accessed via the QR code on the attached poster.
Myself (Nottingham), David (NTU) and Charlotte (Loughborough) are in the initial stages of organising the event so further details will follow over the next few weeks/months, however we just wanted to give you a heads up about the event as I know some of you may already be thinking about clearing and what support students will need.
The initial thinking is to host a live event 1 week prior to each results day which the UniFest team will go through all the basics and more around clearing. So things like;
  • What is clearing
  • How to apply through clearing
  • How to search for a course through clearing
  • How to contact universities
  • Adjustment/changing your program
  • How to submit your documents
  • Paying any deposits
  • Obtaining your CAS
  • How to prepare for your Student Visa
We will also aim to cover other areas as well, however if there are any other areas which you may think would be useful please let us know and we will try and include this as well.
Once the live session has finished, we will upload the recording to our event page and it will allow students to view the recording up to 7 days after the session. When students sign up for the event, they will also receive a document which will have a list of all the universities taking part, with their contact details and information on how to apply through clearing to their university.
After the live session has taken place the week before results day and students have registered for the event, students will then be able to book 1-2-1 sessions with all of the universities taking part to discuss their clearing options. The idea is that when students have these 1-2-1 meetings, the university reps will be able to make on the spot offers, however we will confirm this in the document so students are aware of this. The universities taking part will be the same universities from September 2020 and January 2021 with also a few added universities as well, so a good broad range of universities.
I hope this event will be useful for you and the students. Looking forward to hearing from you if you do have any feedback, otherwise we will be in touch soon with further information.
