Concurrent Session A1: The recruitment and admissions process in elite global universities
Each year bright and talented high school students from around the world apply for admission and scholarships to many of the world’s elite universities. With a surplus of highly competitive applications in relation to available admissions placement opportunities, how do elite global universities determine the most suitable candidates for admission? What should students and parents be thinking about before, and during, the university application process?

Concurrent Session A2: The role of academic integrity in international student success: Supporting student transition from high school to higher education
Academic integrity is critical for both the holistic growth of learners and their competency development, and in the international student transition. The pandemic has shown us the education sector is consistently evaluating processes in academic integrity, and much is at stake for institutions across high school and higher education in combat issues of academic dishonesty. We must also consider how we find balance in assessment and evaluation that champions individual student thinking and growth.
