Dieter F. Uchtdorf

The EDventure programme puts together opportunities made available to us by external organisations. Step out of your comfort zone and visit higher education institutes, participate in hands-on workshops and talk to professors and current university students. Through this, you will get a clearer picture of the prospective university you would like to enter as well as a better sense of which prospective course of study you would like to pursue in the future.

1/   Save the date

Ensure that you are able to commit for the program you have signed up for. Seek excuse from lessons or CCA if you need to.

 

2/   Put on your best behaviour

Every action by you will reflect well / not so well on the school.

3/   Go with an open mind

Be proactive, ask questions, take photos so that you are able to make full use of the opportunity given.

 

4/   Be safe

Activities conducted by the external organiser might be outdoors, in a laboratory or have some degree of physical exertion, so be alert and protect yourself.
