8 former students return to our Peak Campus to give our senior students some insights into all things uni life
|10 Sep 2019|
On Friday, 6th of September, we welcomed back a few familiar faces onto campus. A total of 8 Alumni came back to speak to our senior students about the application process and life at universities in the US and the UK.
William and Sophie (both Class of '17) both shared their experiences on life at Cambridge, studying Medicine and Social & Political Sciences respectively.
The other six graduates are faces that haven't been away for too long. Arista, Avantika, Arushee, Ian, Justin and Jasmine (all Class of '19) shared their various experiences and tips for the application process - one our current Y13 will soon be beginning.
Before they head of to their first year of university, our class of 2019 alumni had the following tips for our current Y13s:
It's the last year you're going to spend with everyone [in your yeargroup] - and probably for the longest time. Remember that and really enjoy the time left you have at German Swiss. Focus on your friends!
Sleep is more important than knowledge!
Remember that you're here because you're smart! You don't need to stress too much - everything will be fine!
Don't forget to have a balanced lifestyle - even during exams!
School and admissions and colleges are not everything. Just enjoy your last year - you're graduating soon!
It's ok to lean on your friends because chances are they are going through the same thing as well
Big thanks to all of our returning Alumni - we always love to see familiar faces roaming our halls!
