【信報:預備班出路】直升倫大有辦法
上星期講過AS失手,其中一個出路是轉校讀一年制A Level課程。之後我收到很多查詢,問如果DSE或AS嚴重失手,想避開A Level一途,入英國大學還有沒有其他路徑?
 
Foundation Course這個選擇,許多家長和同學都不會太陌生。基礎課程的好處是一年讀完,只要達到某個成績便能入銜接的大學。這類課程一般讀的科目不算多,同學可以讀得較為輕鬆。如果在DSE或AS元氣大傷,對挑戰A Level戰戰兢兢,基礎課程是值得考慮的。
 
當然,針無兩頭利,它的短處是缺乏彈性。由於其學歷不受國際認可,同學讀完想到英國以外,甚至回流香港升學,就有一定困難。而且入讀時,同學仔已經要對自己將來選修的科目有明確目標,例如基礎課程時選了經濟,大學便要修讀經濟。它缺乏A Level的靈活性,所以未必適合對未來選科仍然三心兩意的同學。
 
假如覺得Foundation Course確是可行,我會再三提醒家長,選課程時必要搞清楚可以銜接什麼大學,以及辦學機構的背景。識選就要選有信譽、有口碑的,送仔女入讀才能無後顧之憂。
 
保證入倫大
 
在此提供基礎課程選擇內的又一選擇:不少人以為入英國大學的基礎課程一定要在英國修讀,其實有個別基礎課程保證入倫大卻在香港上課,其基本入學要求時年滿17歲、DSE考獲334或AS程度通過個別評估。課程採用小班教學,更吸引是擁有包括前LSE教授的一流師資。成績達標便能直接銜接倫敦大學國際課程,但其實畢業的同學能升上LSE、KCL大不乏人,藉此躋身羅素集團Warwick、Birmingham、Nottingham、Durham等名牌大學的也不少,可見課程質素有保證。站在家長立場,學費只需約12萬港元,比在英國讀便宜一半,也確實減輕很大負擔。
 
我身為留英升學顧問,當然鼓勵年輕人赴英求學,除接受英式優質教育外,也可感受大英文化。不過,如果在入大學前的一年搏殺期,同學仔可以在香港熟悉環境下專心為入大學做充分準備,也未必不是一個明智的做法。尤其這一年制基礎課程是保證能為入英國大學鋪路,一年努力後入到英國大學門檻,到時再慢慢體驗英式生活也為時未晚。
