The St Mary’s College Past Students’ Union hosted the second installment of its Rethink University dubbed “Novel Places” on August 3rd 2021.

Rethink University is a series of virtual sessions targeting forms 4 through 6 and their parents and inviting them to explore more, reach further and to not just settle for what they may have in front of them. There are students in business, science or social science subject paths who may be interested in careers that require a very different university path.

The first session successfully held with >100 students and parents participating to show students that there are ways of achieving their goals despite what “track” they’re currently on and to think big! That session included rich discussion with a diverse panel of alumni locally and abroad as well as a robust Q&A that engaged the students in attendance.

Novel Places saw a similar turn out and engagement. This session featured alumni and a guest who would have studied in places like France, Singapore, Germany and Holland sharing their experiences from application to graduation. Included in this session were representatives from the German Embassy and EU Erasmus. Also taking the time to share opportunities and possibilities with the students and parents was the Indian High Commissioner, H.E. Arun Kumar Sahu.

The St Mary’s College Past Students’ Union would like to thank all who have participated and shared in this series so far. If you missed the session, please note the video is on our YouTube channel.
