It’s that time of year again—the end of the international academic year, when graduation caps fill the air and parents rejoice as their children spread their wings and move onto newer, greater things. For Shrewsbury International School, this year’s graduation ceremony holds a special sense of pride. The academic year of 2017-2018 has proven to be another successful one as this leading purveyor of education celebrates its graduates' acceptances to over 400 leading universities across the globe.


Celebratory news began early on in the year, when eight Shrewsbury seniors received acceptance letters from Oxford and Cambridge, which have long been considered the crème-de-la-crème among the world's best universities, as well as 15 acceptances to the Imperial College London—considered the eighth best university in the world.

While Shrewsbury International School Bangkok is renowned for its strong British curriculum, multiple students have decided to take the US route towards famous American institutions of higher education, such as Cornell University, the University of Berkley and UCLA. There have also been acceptances to the prestigious University of Tokyo, as well as the University of Melbourne, which is considered the top university in the Oceania region.


Students from this year’s graduating class have also opted—like their seniors before them—to pursue a wide variety of fields, ranging from engineering and computer science to fine arts and psychology. There are also students passionate about medicine who have been accepted into Chulalongkorn University and Mahildol University—both, of course, top universities in Thailand but also known particularly for excellence in the field of medicine. The wide range of pursuits is a reflection of Shrewsbury’s emphasis in providing a well-rounded curriculum of multidisciplinary subjects that encourage students to explore and follow their individual interests.


A large part of the success faced by this year’s graduation batch is owed to Shrewsbury’s team of teachers, all of whom are dedicated and professionally trained to guide students according to their personal strengths, interests and learning styles. Shrewsbury International School Bangkok has also established strong relationships with top tier universities across the globe through years of quality education and successful graduates.

Shrewsbury's director of higher education, Jo Fretwell, shares some insight on the high success rates of Shrewsbury graduates: “Students here receive comprehensive advice on choosing faculties or subjects from experts in higher education at Shrewsbury Bangkok. This advice is tailored to their individual interests and strengths, and they also receive support from a strong, tight-knit community of educational consultants, teachers and experienced alumni.”
