Harvard bound

Year 13 student Ramsey Kobeissi has accepted the offer of a place at Harvard on its Liberal Arts programme – the first QE boy to win a place at the prestigious American University.

Ramsey, who was also offered a place at Pembroke College, Cambridge, was attracted to the broad spread of the American programme in the first year and the opportunity to specialise at a later stage. In the offer letter, the Dean of Admissions, William Fitzsimmons said: “Your accomplishments are impressive…we think you would flourish at Harvard and we are eager for you to make it your college choice.”
