In February 2015 Year 13 student Soomin Hong  received an Outstanding International Student Award from the University of British Columbia (UBC). The Award recognises extraordinary academic, extra-curricular and personal achievements. Soomin will join an elite community of international students at UBC, the top university in Canada and currently ranked by the Times Higher Education University Rankings at number 32 in the world.

It is unusual to receive an unconditional offer of place, let alone an award carrying a value of $8,000 before the IB Diploma results are known.
