It was a time of thinking to the future for our Year 12 and 13 students last week as they attended the Tanzanian Student Achievement Organisation UK University Fair at ISMAC. Over 20 Universities from the UK was present including Loughborough, Middlesex, Nottingham, Exeter etc. Advisers answered plenty of questions and offered advice to students wishing to apply to the UK.
With our Sixth Form students currently having 100% acceptance rate for university places, they were left with a lot of food for thought about the future! Last year, students from BISA went to university in Canada, USA, UK, Holland, Sweden, Spain, Cyprus, Turkey, Dubai, India, Kenya, Mauritius, South Africa and, of course, Tanzania. There is a whole world waiting out there!
Students will be attending ISMAC again on Friday 22nd September for a USA University fair. There was a number of Universities present including the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard.
On the 3rd October, an International University Fair will be held at Braeburn School. A range of Universities from all over the world will be on hand to help answer questions and advise students on the university process.
Students are about to start completing their Survival Weekends. This is where groups of students stay in accommodation on site for a weekend to get a taste of independent living. Students will have to cook a series of meals (including inviting a staff member for dinner!), budget their shopping, wash and iron their own clothes. Hopefully this will help prepare them for University!
Students have been busy completing their personal statements and University application with help from staff at Braeburn School. A big thank you to staff involved in helping students with this.
