A Special Visit to Cambridge, LSE, and UCL

March 25, 2015

Zoe, Maria, Andrei, Matei, Radu, and Vladimir (Years 11-12) have just returned from memorable university tour of England, including Cambridge, LSE, and UCL. The purpose of the journey was to find out more about the courses offered, the application process, and the prospects upon graduation.

At Cambridge the students had the opportunity to speak with the International Admissions and School Liaison Officer at Cambridge before going on a tour of King’s College. As a special surprise, Alex Vlad, former IBSB Head Boy currently studying Human, Social, and Political Sciences at Homerton College in Cambridge gave us a personal tour of Trinity, St. John’s, Peterhouse, Emmanuel, and Jesus college. On the tour the students had the chance to get the insider’s view of the college system, the societies, and many other opportunities that Cambridge has to offer its undergraduates. A big thank you Alex!

Back in London, they had guided tours at UCL and LSE – both world-leading universities. This time they had the pleasure and privilege of being guided by former IBSB Head Girl Alexandra Lulache, a second-year student of Anthropology at the most prestigious social sciences university in the world, LSE. Visiting the university campus, the library, the students’ hub building, as well as the positive vibe of the students left a lasting impression on us all. A big thank you also to Alexandra!

On the trip they also had the opportunity to meet up with former Head Girl Catrinel Vlad, recently accepted to Yale, and Deputy Head Girl Sonia Savin, who will study Economics and Philosophy at the LSE in 2015-16. All in all, I think everyone would agree that it was a very memorable trip, and it is clear that the IBSB alumni network is growing quickly, inspiring future generations of IBSB graduates.
