Aim and achieve at Auck­land In­ter­na­tional Col­lege

Auckland City Harbour News - - Education & Training -

If you aim high and be­lieve that you can achieve your dream then it is likely to hap­pen at Auck­land In­ter­na­tional Col­lege.

With no ge­o­graph­i­cal lim­i­ta­tions to their think­ing, stu­dents at AIC ap­ply to the world’s top-ranked univer­si­ties and suc­ceed in gain­ing ad­mis­sion.

In only their third year of ex­is­tence as a se­nior high school the col­lege has ac­com­plished out­stand­ing re­sults.

AIC grad­u­ates are cur­rently study­ing at univer­si­ties such as Cam­bridge, MIT and Prince­ton.

How do stu­dents iden­tify the univer­si­ties they as­pire to?

The Times Ed­u­ca­tion Sup­ple­ment World Univer­sity Rank­ings is the most au­thor­i­ta­tive univer­sity rank­ing sys­tem in ed­u­ca­tional cir­cles.

And the top 50 univer­si­ties iden­ti­fied are the des­ti­na­tions of choice for AIC stu­dents.

To help bring dreams to fruition, not only are teach­ers IB Diploma ed­u­ca­tors.

Most are re­turn­ing New Zealan­ders with in­ter­na­tional ed­u­ca­tional ex­pe­ri­ence.

The col­lege also em­ploys spe­cial­ist univer­sity coun­sel­lors to fa­mil­iarise and sup­port stu­dents with the global univer­sity ap­pli­ca­tion process.

There­fore stu­dents’ dreams be­come re­al­ity.

In New Zealand the Univer­sity of Auck­land, cur­rently ranked on the world rank­ings list at num­ber 50, is in their sights.

In only three years of op­er­a­tion most Auck­land In­ter­na­tional Col­lege stu­dents have re­ceived of­fers from most of the world’s top 50 univer­si­ties.

Of the top 10 univer­si­ties in the world stu­dents have re­ceived of­fers from the univer­si­ties of Cam­bridge, Ox­ford, Prince­ton, Chicago, Im­pe­rial Col­lege Lon­don, Univer­sity Col­lege of Lon­don and MIT.

In the first grad­u­at­ing class of 2006 AIC grad­u­ate Naomi Jones re­ceived of­fers from two of the top 10 univer­si­ties – Cam­bridge and Mas­sachusetts In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy. She chose to at­tend Cam­bridge and as part of her physics pro­gramme is on a univer­sity ex­change at MIT be­fore re­turn­ing to Cam­bridge to con­tinue with her stud­ies.

The re­sults from the present year 13 stu­dents are sim­i­larly im­pres­sive.

Natalie Kim has re­ceived of­fers from two univer­si­ties ranked in the top 10 – Ox­ford and Prince­ton. Her of­fer from Ox­ford is un­con­di­tional, a most ex­cep­tional dis­tinc­tion.

An­other year 13 stu­dent has to choose be­tween of­fers from Cam­bridge and Columbia, the top two univer­si­ties for grad­u­ate No­bel Prize win­ners.

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion con­tact ei­ther ex­ec­u­tive prin­ci­pal Carolyn Solomon or prin­ci­pal Anne Will­mann on 3094480.
