Alumni Returned and Gave Talks
Sharing Tips and Strategies for Success
At DHZH we always welcome returning students to share their valuable experiences gained at international universities. They deliver talks to the current students about the trials and challenges they faced, not only in the universities but also from the life changes they tackled when living in a foreign country.
This month we were fortunate to have two DHZH Alumni return and share their tips and tricks for life in a foreign university. Ryan who graduated from DHZH and is now studying business in the United States and Rosen who graduated and went to Canada and studied management.
Both Alumni returned and shared their experiences in well attended talks to our keen students. The talks may have been a harsh reminder about the challenges the students will face when they get there wish of going to a top international university. Topics that were covered included not only academic challenges faced within the universities, but also the politics, prejudices and cultural differences that some may find difficult when at an international university. Both Alumni shared tips and strategies on overcoming these problems from their own personal experience.
The talks also focused on the wonderful opportunities and experiences that diligent students will be able to attract when attending a top international university. Rosen stressed that Dulwich Zhuhai had prepared him for the university life, highlighting the importance of Dulwich and the English he learnt in his years at DHZH.
He said during the talk, “I spend my four years here listening to all my teachers telling me that English will be the biggest challenge in university. I didn’t find that, and the major reasons for that is that I took advantage of the environment I had here (DHZH)… Dulwich will well prepare you for university in terms of English.”
Our thanks to both Alumni who returned and gave such insightful talks to our students. DHZH wish them continued success in their futures.
