Learners’ Lodge X IvyPrep

Getting Into The Top Universities Of The World

Beyond A Good Grade

Each year, the top universities such as Harvard, MIT, Cambridge, Oxford just to name a few, received applications from over tens of thousands of students all around the world hoping for a place in these prestigious universities. And each year, even some of the most talented failed to secure their seats, not due to bad results, but because of a lack of preparation for the entry interview.

The Preparation

Knowing how difficult it is to get into the top Universities in the world (even with a good result), this year end holiday, Learners’ Lodge has partnered with Singapore’s leading university admissions and test preparation consultancy, IvyPrep, to help you better understand what it will takes to secure a seat in any university around the world.

Over a course of 90 minutes in this FREE workshop, you will participate in activities such as mini-interviews and learn from an ex-Harvard Debate Team’s training director about:

  1. The tutorial systems of top universities
  2. How these prestigious universities consider verbal interviews
  3. How students are accessed

You will also have the chance to ask about questions like:

  1. Why are interviews important in the application process?
  2. How do I prepare in advance for my interviews, if I am still in Sec 4 or J1?
  3. What else can I do to prepare for a competitive application to Prestigious University?
  4. How important are my extra-curricular activities for the application process?
  5. How can I supplement the CCAs I am doing already to enhance my competitiveness?
  6. How do I know which University is the right fit for me?
