2017 China Summit of the Association of Leading Independent Schools is About to Open

Added on: 2017-07-18Share on :

After the great success achieved in 2016, the 2017 China Summit of the Association of Leading Independent Schools is to be held by BE Education in Beijing and Shanghai on Sept. 15 and Sept. 17 respectively.

 

To increase the chance for the children to get into first-class universities and colleges around the world, and to broaden the children's horizon, more and more Chinese parents choose to send their little children abroad for education.

 

Among the destinations, the UK schools have an outstanding reputation for its consistent tradition, lovely environment, high matriculation rate and whole person education, and therefore gain popularity.  

 

With the background of continuing globalization, the international elements in top UK senior schools begin to show prominence. Schools are eager to recruit some of the best Chinese students, so the Association of Leading Independent Schools (ALIS) is formed.
