Ulink College of Shanghai (UCS), the former name being Cambridge International Centre of Shanghai Normal University (CIC), was established in December 2005. UCS is an educational organization authorized by Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) to offer A level (Advanced Level plus Advanced Subsidiary) and IGCSE courses and to conduct A level and IGCSE examinations (centre registration number CN216). It has also received IB World School status on Jan 2018.
With an experienced international faculty, our school has developed a positive and dynamic corporate culture, one that emphasizes close cooperation and support between our local and international staff, along with respect and sensitivity towards all cultures. We endeavor to take the best from Chinese and western cultures to provide opportunities for our students that will allow them to prepare well for life in the West and to enable them to succeed and thrive at the very top universities in the UK, USA, Canada, Hong Kong and elsewhere.
We work hard not only to produce outstanding academic results but also to develop students as confident, caring young people with the inter-personal skills they will need to be successful in their lives. We strive to help them become the best they can be. UCS is a place where very able students have the opportunity to learn in partnership with teams of international and local teachers cooperating to help them achieve outstanding results and move on to the very best universities around the world. Students are taught the skills enabling them to be flexible and independent learners able to cope with the pressures and challenges that face them in their transformation from traditionally-educated Chinese pupils to independent international students. They work effectively on their own, are able to prioritize their work and manage their time effectively. Students leave with qualifications and experiences which will allow them to flourish in their undergraduate and professional lives.
