​​​​​International students excel at the Academic Excellence Awards - Semester 1 - 2018

​​John Paul International College provides ‘A Passport to a Global Future’: a holistic education that underpins all that we do.

From the focus on academics to the students’ involvement in co-curricular, the aim of the International College is to effectively prepare students for study and life at John Paul College and University. This week, we celebrate some of our successful academic students.

At the 2018 Cum Laude & Pro Diligentia Awards Assembly, we are very proud of John Paul International College graduates who received Awards for their outstanding academic achievement since graduating to John Paul College.

  • ​​Of our current Year 12 cohort, approximately 32% of international students achieved a Cum Laude Award (minimum GPA > 11, all As & Bs) or above.
  • For the highest Academic Award, the Summa Cum Laude (minimum of GPA 13), a remarkable 27% of all Awardees were International students.
  • 85% of International Students Award Recipients graduated from the John Paul International College High School Preparation Course.

It is not easy to come to a new country, a new education system, often a new language, a new school, a new home and then succeed in open company. It is pleasing to see that the new John Paul International College curriculum, alongside participation in our co-curricular programme is having a clear impact in preparing the international students for future success.

Congratulations to all students who received Awards. Students who received the highest award are listed below:
