Get an Early Start on Your Thousand-Mile Journey
Successful admissions to competitive schools require preparations from early years. Between 13-17 years old, students should start building up their portfolio based on their interests. QC’s headstart programme provides early exposure to the applications process, specialised tests/interviews, academic prep and non-academic guidance for an outstanding portfolio. This includes external competitions, essays, community involvement projects, research and volunteering.
Headstart mentoring helps students explore university and career paths, build up portfolios, and forge lasting friendships with overachieving mentors. Each QC mentor is a graduate of a top university, has broad experience working with a diverse group of students, and a winning record of admissions success. This is crucial especially for students who would like to apply to universities such as Oxbridge, where strong preparation is key. More importantly, early mentoring sets the foundation for a competitive head-start that widens one’s social network, provides exposure to opportunities, and imparts skills for future careers.
