We are delighted and proud of our amazing Heritage students.”

Heritage students achieved some impressive results – 28 finalist teams qualified for the opportunity to participate in the Global Rounds.

Tatiana Popa, Deputy Academic Director:World Scholar's Cup is a wonderful opportunity for our young people to show their talents and shine when competing with their peers from other schools and countries. It helps them get into the team spirit, think critically and work collaboratively. They get more motivated to learn about the world together with the world. We are looking forward to their performance in London this summer as well!”

I will never forget how all my friends rushed to hug me for bringing this victory. WSC is truly a remarkable opportunity which I would recommend to anyone.”

Sofia Victoria Țurcanu, student: “The World Scholar's Cup was a wonderful competition from start to finish. The organizers managed to make every part of it enjoyable and I am glad I participated.”
