Cam­bridge chan­cel­lor tours Shang­hai school

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - PULSE -

David Card­well, Vice Chan­cel­lor of the Uni­ver­sity of Cam­bridge, met with stu­dents at Shang­hai Thomas School to dis­cuss how to bet­ter plan their stud­ies and de­velop their com­pre­hen­sion abil­i­ties, Xin­min Even­ing News re­ported Wed­nes­day.

He eval­u­ated the stu­dents’ aca­demic po­ten­tial from the per­spec­tive of lan­guage, math, sci­ence and crit­i­cal think­ing. Based on his as­sess­ment re­port, the school will pro­vide tai­lored aca­demic guid­ance.

This is the first time that a top Western uni­ver­sity has of­fered to pro­vide di­rect support for Shang­hai high school stu­dents.

Card­well be­lieves that stu­dents must know their par­tic­u­lar future de­vel­op­ment path based on their own traits and ap­ti­tude. He is also sup­port­ive of the “two-men­tor” ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem.
