We reach out for collaborations with other institutions (overseas and local universities) to develop exclusive packages (fee reduction, discounts for high achievers, summer school programmes). These collaborations are aimed at making higher education more accessible and affordable while making the transition from school to higher learning as smooth as possible.
The City School partners up with Heriot-Watt University Dubai
In another move making higher education more accessible and affordable, The City School has signed an MoA with Heriot-Watt University, Dubai. The university is offering an exclusive scholarship of 15% to all City School graduates and a 100% scholarship to the students with a minimum of 3 A’s. For details and submission of applications, please contact your Career Counsellors.
Heriot-Watt is one of the UK’s leading universities for business and industry and has a reputation for innovative education, enterprise and leading edge research in science, business, engineering and design. Heriot-Watt was the first UK university to create an overseas campus in the Dubai International Academic City. Students come from the UAE, the Gulf Region, and beyond, to undertake a range of postgraduate and undergraduate degree programmes.
Currently, the Dubai Campus supports over 3,700 students on programmes in management, business and finance, energy, geosciences, infrastructure and society, life sciences, engineering and textiles and interior design.
Creating Relations between TCS and British Council
The City School and the British Council signed an MoU on 9 September 2016, further strengthening the partnership between the two organisations. The agreement’s focus is familiarising TCS teachers with the British Council’s International School Awards (orientation/follow-up), Core Skills, School Leadership, and Connecting Classroom programmes.
These workshops definitely benefit teachers in learning new practices and perspectives, leading them towards their professional development. It will open a new window of various cultures for the students to look at and understand diversity.
The British Council promotes global education across Pakistan. As our prime focus as educationists is to prepare students for the real world interacting with people from all cultures, races and religions.
The Project Manager, British Council holds interactive orientation sessions on International School Awards for Head teachers. Head Teachers from Lahore have also been trained by the British Council to facilitate the training of other teachers.
