      New York University Shanghai
      Sophia University
      Yale-NUS College


      There will be additional university offers from universities in Singapore, South Korea, and Australia later this summer.


      Our students have received offers from faculties and programmes ranging from medicine to science and engineering, environmental science, business and commerce, the humanities and social sciences, music and drama, arts and design, and many more.


      These acceptances across such a wide range of academic interests and regions are a reflection of the diverse talents and international mindset of our YCIS and YWIES student body.


      The acceptances are also a reflection of the growth of every student throughout the four year university application process.


      This process is guided by our University Guidance team and is a partnership between the student, their parents, and the school. Through the process, each student reflects on and discovers their unique strengths and abilities, interests, and goals, helping them identify the best schools that match their professional interests, character and life aspirations.


      Our school leadership teams, faculty, and university guidance teams have every confidence in the future of the YCIS and YWIES Class of 2019 because of the strong character and abilities this cohort has demonstrated, and because these students have been nurtured in the challenging environment of YCIS and YWIES, and well equipped for entrance into these leading universities.


      We would like to wish this exceptional group of students the very best as they prepare to embark on their next journey, and remind these graduates that entrance into university is the beginning of their adult life ahead, filled with adventures and challenges.


      We hope that these students enjoy their successes, and remember that achieving anything requires faith and hard work, and that they will continue to be lifelong learners with curiosity and inquisitiveness. As they soon set off around the world as ambassadors of YCIS and YWIES, we look forward to welcoming these alumni back on campus for events and reunions with other members of the YCIS and YWIES family in the future.

      Below please find a representative list of offers received thus far this year. We look forward to sharing more good news about our students' acceptances with you in the coming months.

      About the University Guidance Process at YCIS and YWIES


      The University Guidance Office (UGO) at every YCIS and YWIES Secondary school is dedicated to providing professional guidance to all students regarding their higher education admission and career options.


      The YCIS and YWIES UGO Team comprise a total of 20 advisers with expertise in higher education. The counsellors hail from different countries and have strong professional backgrounds. Some served as former admission officers at British and American universities; others were university lecturers, teachers, co-ordinators, and counsellors. They bring with them a range of skills, knowledge, and experience to benefit each one of our students.


      Our University Guidance Teams have an open-door policy, and all parents are welcome to come learn more about how UGO can help support their child and family. For more information about our university guidance team, or to contact them, please visit the university guidance section of our school website.


      The Alumni Network


      Yew Chung and Yew Wah have a network of alumni spread across the world. We recommend all graduates subscribe to our alumni WeChat official account [ID:YCYWAlumni] and join us at our alumni engagement platform [The Yewtopia].


      This unique platform will provide you with the opportunity to meet and reunite with students, alumni and teachers. You can also get in touch with them by sending them a message or by joining our E-mentorship programme. Questions and problems regarding academic, career and personal will be supported by our alumni.
