Congratulations to our Class of 2024 for achieving great admission results from universities in the US, UK, Australia, Canada, Japan, HK (China), and beyond. Their hard work has earned them acceptance letters from some of the world’s most prestigious universities. Our students’ college achievements are among the highest of international schools in Shanghai, a testament to their dedication and Concordia’s commitment to excellence.


As of February 7, our 69 seniors have secured 88 offers from universities worldwide, including an impressive 17 from those ranked in the U.S.News TOP 30 national universities, Ivy League schools, and the UK’s renowned G5 institutions. Esteemed names like Cambridge, Brown (with 2 offers), Dartmouth, UCL, Duke (with 3 offers), and Northwestern are just a few that stand out. 


Moreover, our students have received 52 offers from universities within the QS TOP 200 global rankings, spanning a wide range of majors from engineering and economics to biology, finance, and even sports analytics.  

The Class of 2024 is also celebrating offers from U.S.News TOP 20 liberal arts colleges, including Barnard, Claremont McKenna, and Hamilton, demonstrating their broad appeal and versatility. Additionally, our students have discovered “hidden gems” like Berklee College of Music, Babson College, the Maryland Institute College of Art, and the School of Visual Arts, proving that talent shines bright in every field.  


The US remains the most popular application destination for Concordia students, and in a year when early application numbers for 2024 surged by 41% over pre-pandemic levels, our seniors have achieved remarkable breakthroughs in this competitive landscape. This success not only celebrates the individual achievements of our students but also highlights the effectiveness of Concordia’s holistic approach to education, as well as our personalized counseling and guidance program.
