MIS 2021-2022 Scholarship Programme is now open for applications. 


Scholarship Benefits


Some might say the financial benefit is the most rewarding part of a scholars time at school, however, students who have embarked on a school scholarship are recognised as having “something special”. 


Universities look upon scholars as being accomplished and gifted, prepared and ahead of the game! 


Being awarded a scholarship is a big deal! Most colleges are looking to add students who will be positive contributors to their student body. A merit scholarship confirms that you are a capable student who would be a great addition to their school. 


Of course, nobody can deny a scholarship has financial benefits, some high achieving young learners may miss out on international schooling due to the private tuition fee costs.    


MIS offers two scholarship programmes IGCSE and A Level. 



What do MIS Scholarship Students feel about their journey here?



Peter Kang

2018-2020 A Level Student

2020 Year 13 Graduate

A Level Results: A* A* A* A (AS Futher Maths)

University Destinations: Unconditional at UCL


Albeit short, my time as an A Level scholarship student in Merchiston International School was simply priceless in all aspects. Under the skillful teaching staff, all my fellow peers and I have successfully paved the way to academic proficiency while receiving countless support to keep ourselves motivated. 


Whilst outstanding grade improvements are impressive enough, the Merchiston virtuse holds much more than just answering exam questions; there were no sides to our wellbeing and potentials that was overlooked. All parts of our school life constantly inspired us about our future careers and respective dreams, and we were consistently encouraged to think creatively and critically. 


Merchiston had everything for us to improve and develop ourselves. We were free to conduct all sorts of scientific and social experiments, attend wellbeing sessions to socialise and take part in sports events to relieve stress. Extensive sets of equipment and outstanding facilities was a nice boost to our morale as well. 


When I left Merchiston to reach out higher, I was certainly much more confident, independent, and inspired. Now I am studying at UCL with a major in PPE, and there is no doubt that my experience in Merchiston will be a great personal asset for whatever lies ahead.  


Lina Soliman

2018-2020 A Level Student

2020 Year 13 Graduate

A Level Results: A B B

University Destinations: University of Fudan


As an MIS scholarship student for the last two years of my school life, I had the privilege of being taught by some of the most experienced and kindest teachers during this unforgettable period. 


I have discovered new personal strengths, learnt how to work on my weaknesses, followed a detailed plan to achieve my goals. I also received all-round, constant guidance especially during the university application process. My personal statement couldn’t have turned out better. 


As a result of this experience, MIS has taken me a long way. Both my personality and academic performance have improved, I have learnt more about British and Chinese cultures - the list is endless. 

The various opportunities and interactions that stem from being an active MIS community member further increased my knowledge and experience beyond school walls. I felt well prepared for my next stage in life and proud of who I’ve become.  


I am currently studying medicine and surgery at Fudan University, haven’t looked back since! 



Tommy Kang

Year 12 current A Level Student

2020-2022


I am Tommy in Y12, and I used to study in Green Oasis School. Now I am a part of MIS, Merchiston International School. I applied to study in MIS mainly because of two reasons: the scholarship programme and the exciting school life full of opportunities here in MIS. If it wasn’t for the scholarship programme they offer, I would not have been able to study in MIS with its excellent facilities and passionate teachers. The MIS scholarship programme allows students to reach their maximum potential, alongside other enthusiastic fellow classmates. The school also gives students many opportunities to take part in a wide variety of extra-curricular activities. I have participated in many of these activities, such as those relating to music, sports, or student leadership bodies. Along with fellow students in December 2020 we entered the CSSC National Debate. I along with a classmate won the competition out of 800 plus entries going 6 rounds. My journey here in MIS has been amazing so far, thanks to the great learning environment the school provides for students. 



Harry Pan

Year 13 current A Level Student

Offers:  Imperial College London, University of Manchester, University of Southampton

2019-2021


I am Harry a Year 13 student at MIS, prior to joining MIS I studied at ULC, Guangzhou. I chose MIS for my final two years of school for many reasons. Firstly, all the MIS teachers have advanced degrees, which greatly assists my study. The boarding house set up is excellent because we have single rooms, which allows me to focus on my work without distraction. In my opinion, scholarship means not only a good academic performance, but also a motivation for me to make further progress. I chose five A Level subjects in Year 12, which was a difficult challenge for me, but with the teachers help and the school’s excellent learning environment, I achieved top grades in the exams. I am part of the school band and have performed in many events. Recently during my university applications the MIS teachers offered substantial help in achieving my acceptance for my dream university. I highly appreciated by their work and their skills. 



Crystal Fong

Year 13current A Level Student

Offers: University of Manchester, University of York

2019-2021


I am Crystal, currently studying in MIS Year 13. Before joining MIS I studied in Green Oasis School.  The reason why I chose MIS is mostly because of the expert teachers which have all kinds of experience both international and in China.   My peers also provide me with immense help in my studies. I regard the scholarship as an important motivation in my school life at MIS. Because of this, I work hard in all my subjects and try to manage my time suitably as MIS is also a boarding school. Whenever I have any confusion, I engage with my subject teachers and with their advice and support I am able to have a deeper understanding of the contents. 

During  Year 12, I was selected as Head Girl to represents the school and fellow students. Being Head Girl, I gained the key ability of communication,. This was driven by being the voice for other students and collecting their suggestions and listening to their opinions on matters that were important to them and meeting with key leadership staff to find a common ground.  Many ideas were implemented to which I am happy and thrilled to see the school's positive development.  

As a sports fan, I joined the school A-team. In this team, I made a lot of friend with the same interests and I got to know the responsible PE teachers. I have participated in numerous tournaments and competitions allowing me to go out of school and meeting people with different ages and backgrounds. 

The work I have done and success I have achieved would not be possible without the school. MIS provided me with many great opportunities to achieve my future goal and has planned a better route for me when I graduate.

曼校2021-2022年度奖学金项目正式发布,请各位申请者详细阅读本文末政策部分,做好申请的相关准备。


有关奖学金,你不知道的利好


有人可能认为,经济上的意义是奖学金最主要的价值,而实际上,奖学金获得者在学校会被认为在某些方面有“过人之处”,这个意义甚至更为重要。


当在申请大学的时候,学校往往会更看重在IGCSE和A Level阶段的奖学金获得者,因为这些人往往是有过人成就、拥有过人才能的。


从这个角度来看,申请和获得奖学金是件重要的大事。绝大多数的大学都希望他们可以招到更多曾作出积极贡献的学生。一项优异奖学金可以证明你是个能干的学生,这对大学做选择时是否有帮助。


当然,没人否认奖学金的经济意义,由于学费的问题,一些成绩斐然的学生可能错过国际学校的学习机会。曼校的奖学金计划正是为这些学生提供了机会。


曼校现为IGCSE 和 A Level 阶段学生提供相应的奖学金计划。



奖学金获得者在曼校学习有何体验



Peter Kang

2018-2020 A Level 学生

2020 年13年级毕业生

A Level 成绩 A* A* A* A (AS 进阶数学)

毕业去向:伦敦大学学院无条件录取


我作为奖学金获得者在曼校攻读A-Level,尽管只有短短两年时间,但这段经历于我而言,是无价的。在专业度极高的老师的陪伴下,我和同学们都极大地提升了学术水平,并获得了很多支持,让我们保持学习的源动力。


尽管曼校的学术成就足够耀眼,但我认为曼校令我难忘的绝不至于应试上对我的支持,还有在身心健康和德育方面对我的谆谆教诲。曼校鼓励我们思考未来职业发展方向,激发我们对于梦想的具体想象,并鼓励我们保持创造性和批判性思维。


曼校为我们提供了自我成长的源动力。我们可以自由地进行科学和社会实验,参加有益于身心健康的各类社交,投身体育赛事缓解压力。充足高端的校内设施也极大地鼓舞了我们的士气。


当我离开曼校,走向大学,向更高的目标迈进时,我无疑是更加自信,独立和充满创造力的。现在,我正在UCL学习PPE专业,并且毫无疑问,我在曼校的经验对于将来的工作将是一笔宝贵的个人财富。


Lina Soliman

2018-2020 A Level 学生

2020 年13年级毕业生

A Level成绩:A B B

毕业动向:复旦大学


作为曼校A Level阶段的奖学金获得者,我有幸在这两年的时间内在曼校度过。


曼校的老师们教会了我很多,我发现了自己的一些潜能和长处,也明确了一些弱点,并遵循详细的计划来实现自己的目标。在申请大学期间,我更是得到了全面持续的指导,个人文书写得十分出色。


得益于这些经验,曼校使我在自我认知和个人发展上走得更远更稳。我的性格和学习成绩都有所提高、对英国和中国的文化有了更深入的了解……这份从曼校的获益清单无穷无尽。


作为曼校社区的一员,我也活跃在各类活动现场,这让我进一步增加了知识和经验,打破学校的墙,扩展了自己的认知。这为我的人生下一步打下了坚实的基础,我很清晰地知道我将成为什么样的人,我为此感到骄傲。


我目前正在复旦大学学习外科,我十分坚定地知道,这就是我想要的人生。



Tommy Kang

12 年级学生

2020-2022


我是12年级的Tommy, 我曾在城市绿洲读书。现在,我成为曼校的一名学生。我之所以申请曼校,主要有两个原因:曼校的奖学金计划以及曼校充满机遇和令人兴奋的学校生活。如果没有曼校提供的奖学金,我将无法享受曼校一流的设施和接受高水平的曼校教师的培养。曼校还为学生提供了很多课外学习的机会,我也参加了很多这样的活动,例如音乐类、体育类和学生会的相关活动。2020年12月,我们与同学们一起参加了粤港澳大湾区全国青少年辩论赛。历经六轮比赛,我和队友们从800多个赛队里脱颖而出,赢得了冠军。到目前为止,由于学校为学生提供了良好的学习环境,因此我在曼校的生活十分开心。



Harry Pan

13年级学生

已获得offer:帝国理工,曼彻斯特大学,南安普顿大学 


我是曼校13年级的学生,在加入曼校之前,我在广州ULC学习。我最后两年选择曼校的原因有很多。首先,所有曼校老师都是拥有高学历和极高教学水平的,这极大的帮助了我的学业。另外,宿舍设置也非常合理,能让我可以专心学习,不会分心。我认为,奖学金不仅仅意味着良好的学业成绩,也是我不断进步的动力。


我在十二年级选择了五门A Level科目,真的对我来说是一个艰巨的挑战,但是曼校良好的学校氛围下,在老师的悉心指导下,我在考试中取得了最高分。


我还是学校乐队的成员,参与过很多活动。在最近大学申请季,曼校的升学指导老师为我提供了很多实质性的帮助,我对他们的工作和专业度表示敬佩和感谢。



Crystal Fong

13年级学生

已获得offer:曼彻斯特大学, 约克大学

2019-2021


我是Crystal,目前就读于曼校13年级。加入曼校之前,我在城市绿洲学校学习。我选择MIS的原因主要是因为曼校所具有的丰富国际教学经验的专家级的教师团队。我的同学也为我的学习提供了巨大的帮助。我认为奖学金是我在曼校上学的重要动力。由于曼校是一所寄宿学校,我会努力学习所有学科,并尝试合理管理课余时间。每当我有任何困惑时,我都会与我的学科老师交流,并在他们的建议和支持下,对内容进行更深入的了解。 


在12年级期间,我被选为学生会主席。作为学生会主席,我掌握了如何沟通这个关键能力。我积极收集同学们的建议,听取他们对他们重要的事情的意见,并与主要领导人员会面洽谈。我们共同推进了想法的落地,我很高兴为学校的积极发展做出了一定的努力。 


作为体育迷,我加入了学校的A队。在这个团队中,我结识了很多志趣相投的朋友和认真负责的体育老师。我参加了许多比赛,并在比赛中结识了很多不同年龄和背景的朋友。 


没有曼校,我不可能有现在的收获和进步。曼校为我提供了许多实现我未来目标的绝佳机会,并为我毕业后规划了一条更好的路线。
