How to Make Your University Application Impressive


Published on

Consuming the majority of a high school student’s time and mental capacity nearing the end of his/her final year is the university application process. Every student wants to be accepted by their dream university and thus must make their application stand out. It is important that students do a bit of preparation and create proper guidelines for their activity and expectations before, during, and after the application process. This will help alleviate stress and increase the chances for university acceptance.

Yew Chung International School of Shanghai (YCIS Beijing) provides our students with a well-rounded, global education, as well as a University Guidance Programme, to help students plan and prepare for a successful university experience.
