Queenie, HKU Student,

It was the first time we joined a school tour in the U.K. Initially we thought it would be more academic, however, the various visits on the tour provided a rich experience. The Cambridge professors were particularly helpful. It was also refreshing to visit an organic farm for the first time. Looking back on this trip, I gained a lot of insights which are of great help to my application to universities.

Ms Leung,

WGO’s comprehensively organised Cambridge tour enabled my daughter to develop an in depth understanding of the U.K. higher education system and fall in love with U.K.’s academic environment. She was able to make many new friends and plans to study in the U.K. in the future.
