About Carson Tsang
“I am passionate about what I do, and I am thrilled to be a part of Britannia’s remarkable growth.”
I have a strong financial background having spent over three years at one of the world’s leading banks.
Although it was an eye opener working with some of the smartest people in the industry, I quickly realised that a corporate and money-driven market was not for me. I wanted to embark on a career which would give me the opportunity to meet and interact with clients, and, most importantly, to help people. Then, Britannia StudyLink presented me with the chance to divert my career path and fulfil my wishes. It was a no-brainer of a choice, and I feel that destiny played its part in driving me into the world of British boarding school education.
Here is why. Only 18 months ago I was one of Britannia’s clients. I came to BSL to receive Samuel Chan’s advice on which schools to choose for my siblings, who were both very young. As an elder brother, it was my responsibility to attend all the seminars and do the exhaustive research. Choosing a school is not a decision which can be taken lightly, and it is certainly not as simple as attending an exhibition or merely going with the first school which makes an offer. All of these schools appear to be very similar on their websites and in glossy brochures, with plenty of green space, expansive playing fields, happy children in neat uniforms and architecture of the Downton Abbey variety.
Every child is different. My sister, for example, is very passionate about art, while my little cousin is highly focused and academic. Choosing a school should not be done solely on the basis of word-of-mouth or an enthusiastic recommendation because children have different tastes and abilities. Nor should one assess league tables as a means to select a school as there are far more important criteria to weigh up, such as individual attention afforded to children and the provision of a well-rounded education.
My siblings will attend Bilton Grange Preparatory School and Mount Kelly School. I do admire what UK boarding schools have to offer and I wholeheartedly believe that the boarding school scene and ethos does wonders for a child’s self-confidence and self-development. Therefore, it is straightforward for me to advise families on the benefits of studying in the UK. Moreover, my passion for Britain knows no bounds. I have always enjoyed reading about British culture and British History.
My current role at Britannia includes meeting with school marketing representatives, academics and also my favourite part – students. It is a pleasure to see them returning from the UK with a smile on their faces, where character development is as plain as day – and, of course, their results speak volumes about how they have developed as students.
I am passionate about what I do, and I am thrilled to be a part of Britannia’s remarkable growth.
