Congratulations to Anmol Gandhi on his offers from Loughborough University, University of Manchester, Cardiff University, University of Leicester, Singapore Institute of Management, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) and City University of Hong Kong. He is planning to study Finance and Economics

“As of now, I am not sure which university I am will attend, as I have not applied to all my schools yet and I have also not heard back from all the ones I applied to. But out of the offers I have received so far, I am leaning towards City University of Hong Kong. I applied to Singapore and Hong Kong as they are quite close to home and they are also very good schools for the courses that I want to pursue, with good academic rankings, employability rates and facilities.”

“I was drawn to Finance and Economics when COVID-19 first hit, as I saw the impact lockdowns and shutdowns were having on the economy and the stock market. It was at this point, I got very curious about this and did the Financial Markets MOOC (online course), which gave me a deeper understanding and that was when I decided to study Finance at university.”

“I also took part in the work experience programme. I was placed at The Westin Grande in the Food and Beverage Department, Banquet section. Some of my duties as an intern there were to help coordinate communication between the different departments to allow smooth operations of the events happening at the hotel, and to learn about the logistics involved in organising such events. I have also been involved with the School Robotics Team and the Treasurer for the RISE CAT club.”
