Bloomsbury "Pathways to Success"

On Thursday 7th December, Bloomsbury International School Hatyai invited parents and students from around Hatyai to our ‘Pathways to Success’ event. With changes to the entry requirements to universities in Thailand and internationally, the event gave an opportunity for parents and students to learn how A-Levels are now necessary to gain access to further education.

Along with Bloomsbury International School teachers showcasing the A-Level subjects that were on offer, we also welcomed talks from guest speakers outside the school campus. We heard from Ajarn Jaiaka Ritthipruck, Head of Public relations PSU, who explained the changes to the entry requirements for university and how the new point system will work. Khun Anek Messsomsam, Student of Business Management in MICE PSU, who gave a student perspective on how he would have benefited from having the opportunity to take A-levels as a stepping stone to university, in order to learn independent thinking skills that are expected in higher education. Lastly, we had a very uplifting and inspirational talk from lecturer Dr. Wanamina Waehama Department of Business Adminstration PSU, who expressed her happiness in learning that Bloomsbury International is one of the only schools in the South of Thailand that are offering the chance to do A-Levels. After spending many years studying abroad she was humbled by the international atmosphere and educational opportunities Bloomsbury International School offer to students.

After the talks, parents and students were able to ask questions about specific subjects with the teachers and ask for more information about the pathway towards university. Many parents and students walked away that evening more informed about the steps they have to take towards higher education and are looking forward to the opening of Bloomsbury International School Hatyai’s Sixth Form next academic year.

We would like to thank all staff, parents, students and guest speakers for making the event so successful. If you would like any more information regarding Sixth Form and A-Levels, please do not hesitate to contact the school to speak to Mrs Benson, Head of Sixth Form.
