University visits at MEFIS Izmir
Last Friday we had a visitor representing Minerva Schools at KGI who gave a presentation to interested upper secondary students about their programs and application process. The Minerva School at KGI is a partnership between Minerva Project and Keck Graduate Institute which is a member of Claremont University Consortium. This year alone they had 16000 applications across the globe out of which only 162 student were selected from 46 Nationalities. Minerva offers experiential learning where students go across 7 cities of the world (San Francisco to Argentina, Berlin, London, Taiwan, India and South Korea) and spend a semester there. Overall 88% of students are doing internships in 100 different companies. There is full financial grants available to all those who qualify for the admission. At Minerva there are no admission quotas for gender or ethnicity, no consideration of the family or financial status and no enrolment caps. Minerva is constantly looking for exceptional students across the globe. The curriculum is heavily interrelated and becomes increasingly customizable to fit into the philosophy of "training students for jobs that do not exist yet," hence favours flexibility. As a liberal arts school, the concentrations offered are Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, Business, Computational Sciences, and Arts & Humanities.
