3. Opportunities for Students To Develop Communication, Leadership and Management Skills
Taylor’s actively presents students opportunities to advance their communication, teamwork and event management skills to develop them into leaders.
For example, ADP student Tee Le Peng took first place at the Harvard Project for Asian and International Relations 2017.
Tee led his team and presented a proposal on increasing female participation rates in Math, Science, Engineering and Technology industries in Australia before a panel of judges.
Public speaking skills learnt from the Taylor’s ADP was one of the reasons his team’s 15-minute pitch won the judges over.

Taylor’s ADP also supported the ADP Econo-Mania Club, a club dedicated to making campus life more enjoyable through learning economics and event planning.
When the Econo-Mania committee launch an intervarsity stock exchange challenge, Taylor’s ADP aided its students’ efforts throughout the event’s production.
The event was so successful that Ai FM invited its committee members to share their experiences of being 学霸 "Xue Ba" (outstanding students in both academic and extracurricular) and how they organised the challenge.

4. Award-Winning Career Services Team Helps Students Find Their Passion
ADP students have access to an award-winning career service team that helps students plan for a degree by taking them through an organised self discovery process.
Students are guided by counsellors to systematically find their passion in life, by reviewing their interests, personal ability, values and preferred rewards to narrow down potential degrees that they’re interested in.
This allows ADP students to capitalise on their strengths and personal values, which increases their chances of excelling in their chosen degree because they are motivated.
