This summer, Hotel ICON proudly presents “The Academy”, a boundless concept space where people inspire people to let ideas flow and synergise.


Facilitating modern designed venues, The Academy houses three new event options for any occasion, including Bistro 1979, a retro-themed restaurant that provides an array of authentic Western and Chinese dishes designed by the hotel’s award-winning culinary team; Vinoteca Lab, a studio for workshops and classroom-style events; and Food Lab Kitchen, a spacious, fully-equipped kitchen, ideal for any kind of cooking classes.


At the Academy, our teachers are all certified trainers and professional mixologists and chefs from Thailand, India, Malaysia and Hong Kong, they will help students to learn new cooking skills or build on what they already know. This empowers them to acquire the knowledge and confidence they need to establish lifetime skills and successful careers in hospitality.


I would like to introduce you to three summer activity packages including Kitchen Confidence, MasterChef Cooking Class and Mixology Class (mocktails). Students not only can take the recipe and the dish or cake home but also an official certificate from Hotel ICON.

NYU: Is early decision right for me?

Posted by heo


Hi ,

NYU’s first application deadline, Early Decision I, is just around the corner (Sunday, November 1). If NYU is your top choice, we encourage you to apply early decision. You may have some lingering questions, and we hope the information below will help you make the best decision.

Why should I apply early decision? If you’re sure NYU is the school for you, submitting your application for early decision can help shorten the college search process and reduce admissions stress. It’s also a great way to let our admissions committee know that NYU is your first choice. For some additional insight, Michelle (CAS ’23) talks about why she applied early decision and what she wants other students to know on Meet NYU.

When is the early decision deadline? The deadline to apply Early Decision I to NYU is Sunday, November 1.

What if I’m not ready by November 1? We also offer two other decision plans if you need a bit more time to decide or to present your best case for admission. Our Early Decision II deadline is January 1, and our Regular Decision deadline is January 5, with notification dates of February 15 and April 1.

What about financial aid? Apply for financial aid—regardless of whether you are interested in need or merit-based aid—if you want to be considered for scholarships. And remember, if comparing financial aid packages is an important factor in your decision to enroll, applying Regular Decision may be better for you. Regular Decision gives you the ability to indicate that NYU is your top choice on your application while retaining the flexibility to compare your financial aid packages from other schools.

When you’re ready, click the link below to start your application.

We’ll also spend several episodes on an area of AI known as machine learning which has skyrocketed in popularity in recent years. AI is everywhere right now and has the potential to do amazing things in our lives. But there’s also great potential for peril, which is why we believe it is more important than ever that developers, and non-developers alike, understand AI.
