做好準備讀大學

英國有一系列的國際Foundation Programme,學科範疇廣,讓有意和有潛質報讀大學本科的學生選修。適逢DSE放磅,香港學生如果考試成績未如理想,未能在香港升讀本地大學,可以考慮到英國讀Foundation,也是一條出路。

 

而國際生如果未能符合大學入學基本條件,亦不用灰心,因為International Foundation Year正正為這類學生開辦。International Foundation Year是一個為期一年的密集式課程,於短期內集中培訓學生於某學科或技能的知識,讓他們能及早達到大學入學要求。

 

學生選讀IFP有不少好處。首先,修讀一年的Foundation Programme比起較短期的Pre-sessional Courses (先修課程)更能深入地幫助學生了解及適應大學的學習風格和方式,有助他們更無縫地銜接大學本科課程。其次,IFP課程的結構同時包括了學術科目的學習和英文能力的培訓,多元化之餘能同時提升學生的英文能力,以面對將來較具挑戰性的大學本科課程。

 

初步了解過International Foundation Year的概念,以下為大家介紹兩間有提供IFP課程的大學:

 

 

1.The University of Warwick 華威大學

Warwick 的IFP課程於大學主校園授課,是全英國其歷史最悠久的IFP之一。Warwick更保證修讀某些IFP學科的學生,必然會收到conditional offer(有條件取錄)。Warwick的IFP有五大重點學科:商業研究及經濟、法律、數學及經濟、科學及工程學,和社會科學。

 

2.INTO Newcastle University 紐卡素大學

紐卡素大學INTO課程於2005年成立,以伙伴形式與全球最有名的大學作長期合作,包括University of East Anglia、University of South Florida及Nankai University, China。

 

紐卡素大學INTO課程對不少學生來說是個刺激好玩的選擇。一方面,紐卡素正的城市發展飛快,而大學在學術研究方面都相當有名氣,對於學生來說絕對會是難忘的學習體驗。紐卡素大學也提供了五個科目選擇,包括建築學和商業及管理學。

 

總括而言,香港學生在IFP課程,例如INTO中,能夠更深入體驗大學的文化和學習,為將來修讀大學做好更全面的準備。而英國教育制度強調對學生關顧和照料,令國際學生在成長和學習方面都有所獲益。除了以上兩所大學,英國還有其他提供IFP的大學,例如University of Kent、University of Sussex和The University of Nottingham等。

#School Analysis
Considering its reputation, Oundle School may not catch up to Eton, Wycombe Abbey and else top elite schools. However, Oundle’s academic performance is among the best in the United Kingdom. As a traditional top boarding school, Oundle pays huge attentions to student’s holistic development, by providing them diversified extra-curricular activities. In addition, Oundle still implements the House Dining System, which is rarely remaining among uk boarding schools. It is also one of the reasons why Hong Kong parents making a beeline for.
The ratio of teachers and students in Bromsgrove School is 1:8, which is lower than the average among uk boarding schools. In addition, according to my school visit experience, Bromsgrove has the best facilities, that it is undoubtedly one of the best three campuses in the UK. Besides, Bromsgrove spares no expense to provide students comfortable environment, it even invests on the nearby hotel and transfers it into dormitories. As a result, students can possess the “5-star enjoyment” on campus. To conclude, Bromsgrove is definitely a prospective and globalised uk boarding school.
Brighton College is Britain’s premier private school and one of the Hong Kong parents’ favourites. To understand a boarding school, despite of looking at its educational tenet, diversified extra-curricular activities and academics results, it is essential to observe the boldness of the principal. 10 years ago, after Mr. Richard Cairns taking up the duty of the Brighton College’s principal, the school ranking raises from the 150th to the top 20th. In addition to promoting educational reformation, Mr Cairns is such a good principal, that he still strives for maintaining students’ curiosity at the same time.
