News just in! Commerce offer from University of Alberta came within 48 hours after application.

Translated by Jin JIN from Grade 10, SuOn Academy


This offer came in record time, even our counselor didn’t expect it. On November 23rd, the first University of Alberta offer arrived within two days since submission.

In the past few years, the University of Alberta has become one of the most popular Canadian universities our students have applied. This university is highly cost effective with world ranking among top 150 and modest tuition fee. Our students were even more interested in this University when Xiaolong Gao, one of SuOn graduates became the only recipient of the May Quon Schlarship ($45000 CAD) of the year.

Let’s take a closer look at Ziqi’s application profile:
3 year full time study in Ontario;
Average around 90 for Grade 11 courses;
Average of 94 for the three Grade 12 courses so far;
IELTS 6.5 with no band below 6.0.

Ziqi was able to receive an offer so soon and so early in the application season is because universities consider Grade 11 U/M grades for early offers of admission, where Grade 12 U/M grades are incomplete or not available. And Ziqi has very strong grades in Grade 11.

Ziqi entered Ontario education system early enough to get used to the learning style and teaching method. Universities are always keen to attract top students to maintain it’s competitiveness, with incentives such as early admission and scholarships. Ziqi also received a handsome scholarship with her offer.

Another factor that came to play is the credit and reputation SuOn Academy has accumulated over the years with University of Alberta because our graduates perform so well in the university.

The University of Alberta is located in one of the northernmost major cities in the world. Edmonton is a city with one million residents and one of Canada’s strongest local economies. It is a TOP 5 university in Canada and TOP 150 in the world.

Well done, Ziqi and congratulations! We are looking forward to hearing more good news from you and from all the 2021 SuOn students!
