【頭條日報:赴英遊學】遊學宜先訂立目標

近年香港學生在暑假遊學,大行其道。事實上,遊學固然可取,只是能否充份利用遊學活動,壙闊視野,以及在不同文化之下累積學習經驗,發掘個人興趣和潛能;所以計劃送子女遊學前,宜訂立目標,透視遊學情節;待遊學後檢視遊學效益,不要白白浪費機會。

坊間的遊學團倘在香港成團,效益不大,緣為遊學團全是香港學生,只是將遊學場景搬到海外,沒有來自不同國家、不同文化的團友,較難體驗多元文化及種族之下的學習經歷。因此,建議家長安排子女參加當地的遊學團。

遊學內容方面,主要以學習英語為核心,是否適合,見仁見智;現時外國遊學團辦核心的學習和活動已多元化,譬如有環球年輕領袖遊學團、足球訓練及管理遊學團,甚至是太空與科技遊學團等;家長宜先在網上搜查,檢視其內容是否合適,然後聯繫香港的代理代辦及安排,又或直接聯絡當地辦遊學的機構,不過找代理安排或有費用折扣優惠。

由英國OurWorldEnglishSchools主力舉辦為期兩周的年輕領袖遊學團(GlobalYoungLeaders)較為值得推介,舉辦地點在英國名校Charterhouse,此校活動設備佳,且校園偌大,核心內容是辯論及思維邏輯課堂,檢視學生的領袖能力,學生可從中發掘個人能力層次;其間有兩天到牛津及劍橋體驗歷史及文化之遊,另兩個星期日則參觀倫敦名勝及博物館。

細想與來自不同國家的同學一齊學習和活動,其間的融合和溝通已屬畢生難忘。主辦機構已有二十七年辦遊學團歷史,每年暑期接待一千名來自全球五十個國家的學生參加;凡十四至十八歲中學生,倘在學校對領導活動有識見,喜歡搞學會及活動,極適合參加。香港學生可參加七月二十日至八月三日的課期,學費二千五百英鎊。此外,英國AlexandersCollege的騎術訓練暑期班也值推介,一星期課程,學費只為七百九十英鎊。

筆者將在四月二十五日(星期六)舉行如何選擇適合子女的暑期遊學講座,並介紹物有所值的遊學團,《頭條日報》讀友免費參加,報名可WhatsApp61075222,查詢電話31840876。

再提醒讀友,全英A-level排名十大的QueenEthelburga'sCollege校長StevenJandrell將在明天(星期二)下午七時主持講座,並面見學生,提早招收二○一六年九月入學的學生,有興趣參加講座或約見校長仍可WhatsApp98352121留位。香港在學的學生每年申請牛津大學的約有百多名,以2013年為例共有114名,獲取錄的有12名;英國中學在學的香港學生申請牛津,2013年則有323名,結果有47名被取錄,以取錄率計,在英國讀的被取錄的機會較高。過預計2015年香港在學的學生獲牛津取錄的百分率會提升;近年家長普遍認同教育非單為知識和成績,而更重要是啟發子女的未來的學術潛能及發展,所以成績優異學生的家長開始思索,海外名牌大學如牛津、劍橋等是否更適合自己的子女,於是提早部署考牛津,相對有望提升被取錄的百分率。

牛津大學對香港學生在DSE成績的基本要求為三科選修科中取得5級成績;假如欲申請與數學有關的課程,核心數學起碼要5*,另M1/M2要有5級;IB門檻是38-40分,HL3科最少有6分;GCEA-level門檻則由三科A*A*A至AAA,也視乎個別課程要求;修讀美國學制的則要求SATReasoning三部份各有700分或以上,加上來不少於2,100分,另起碼要有三個AP,否則或要考三科SAT(II)科目試;英文能力試方面,IELTS基本要求7.0分,各部份也不少於7.0分;TOEFLIBT110分或以上。牛津所有課程取錄海外生沒限額,只是醫學院因應英國政府條例,每年只能取錄14名非歐盟的海外學生。

申請牛津要考能力試、入學試及面試,面試按各個學院有不同的形式,假如有困難不能親到英國面試,可安排透過視像面試或電話面試;惟醫學院必須親到英國面試,部份學院要求申請人在牛津逗留五天面試;每年獲邀面試的申請人約有一萬名,總計共有二萬四千次面試在每年十二月舉行。有意投考牛津,可在九月一日至十月十五日透過UCAS申請,只能選一個課程,也不能同時申請劍橋。

全英高考連續五年排第一的CardiffSixthFromCollege將在今年七月二十日至二十四日在香港喇沙書院舉行《考入牛津、劍橋及世界名牌大學研習班》,有意投考入牛津及其他世界名牌大學應有很大幫助,學費為一千英鎊,內容包括面試及演說技巧、邏輯思維訓練、個人陳述寫作培訓、辯論方法以及醫學院、法律學院專門入學考試和申請程序秘訣等。報名及查詢詳情可致電98352121或辦公時間致電31840876。
