Network Student Wins Full Scholarship to Oxford Royale Academy Summer Programme
It is with great pleasure that we announce a Network International School student has been selected for a full scholarship at the prestigious Oxford Royale Academy for a two week study programme this summer.
This is an immensely popular programme and the selection process is known to be rigorous. Only one student from Myanmar was selected, making this even more of a tremendous achievement for our year 10 student, Apple.
Oxford Royale Academy students sleep, eat and study in a world leading university in Oxford, UK. This gives students the rare opportunity to experience life as a university undergraduate and work alongside the best and brightest from all over the world.
Some words from the winner herself, Apple:
This has been the greatest achievement of my life so far. I’m very grateful and thrilled to have been given this opportunity to represent Myanmar among the other 108 students of different nationalities. I wouldn’t have been able to achieve this without the help of my teachers and family.
I’ve applied for the New Perspective course that allows me to pursue areas of interest or try out something new. Out of 15 different available options, I’ve chosen to attend 3 classes: Environmental Science, Economics and Management and Leadership and Teambuilding, as an afternoon workshop.
I’m really excited to be going to Oxford soon and visit many famous and historical buildings and places. I hope to gain new experiences and perspectives on different cultures and make new memories and lasting friendships. Hopefully, I’ll also be able to return with a clearer vision of what career I would like to pursue in the future.
