Mr. Eric Gu is a co-founder of Giraffe Learning Ltd. Not only did he participate in the invention of the Giraffe Learning Method; but, he designed all course materials at our learning centre, as well.
Eric holds a Master of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering and a Bachelor of Applied Science with Distinction in Mechanical Engineering, both from the internationally reputable University of British Columbia.
His legend starts from his high school studies. He completed the International Baccalaureate Diploma with the 4th rank in Asia. With his exceptional grades and personal statements, he successfully received offers from many top universities, including, but not limited to, MIT, University of Cambridge, UC Berkeley, UCLA, Washington University of St. Louis, UBC, University of Toronto, McGill, Imperial College London, and University College of London.
He pursued his education at UBC with the fact that UBC entitled him as the International Leader of Tomorrow, with a full scholarship from 2006 to 2010 in total of CAD $150,000. He was one of the only four Asian students titled with such honour during this period. Study is never a difficulty for him. He continued his legacy at UBC, receiving numerous awards such as Charles and Jane Banks Scholarship, the Trek Excellence Scholarship, Dean’s Honour List, just to name a few.
With such outstanding achievements, Eric has built a strong, close relationship with both the Dean of the Faculty of Applied Science and the Enrolment Office of UBC. He was hand-picked to represent team UBC in various domestic and international competitions. In fact, under his supervision and leadership, FormulaUBC successfully obtained one gold medal at the International Green Energy Race Competition.
While bringing honour back to UBC, he has more than 10 years of experience in helping students plan their university applications and prepare admission documents. With his support, students received offers from Harvard University, Princeton University, Columbia University, Cornell University, UC Berkeley, California Institute of Technology, University of Chicago, Dartmouth College, Washington University of St. Louis, UBC, University of Toronto, McGill, etc. As he continues his legend at Giraffe Learning, Eric strives to help students chase their dreams.
