【頭條日報:預備班出路】新派大學Foundation

近年來升學開始講求靈活彈性和分散風險,更重要的是放眼世界。香港家長一條龍升學的概念根深蒂固,送子女到外國升學時也會堅持:「將來想佢入A大學,梗要佢讀A大學的基礎課程(foundation)。」但其實大家一直以來向一間target大學孤注一擲的做法,在外國已經開始淘汰。

的確,香港家長這想法無可厚非。傳統做法確實鼓勵同學仔修讀心儀大學所提供的foundation,完成後更有把握獲該大學取錄。但現時的新做法,是能夠針對學生升讀世界各地大學之廣泛需要的世界大學foundation。這類課程可令同學避免一條龍foundation衍生各種問題。例如報讀了A大學的基礎課程,最後不獲A大學取錄;又或者子女改變升學計劃想入其他大學,甚至到其他國家升學,令之前的foundation無用武之地,白白浪費時間金錢。

這種新派foundation的最大好處,是靈活有彈性,學生可隨心報讀全世界多間大學。這類課程會因應學生的個人興趣、才華及強項度身訂造,根據他們的學術喜好及職業導向設計出課程及時間表,為他們申請大學提供貼身的指導和支援,引領他們為自己的未來作最佳鋪排。換言之,課程專注同學的個人升學需要,亦符合世界各地多間高等學府的入學要求。

提供這類新派foundation的學校中,以EF Education First最為人熟悉。香港人普遍認識EF,都源於其語言遊學課程。但其實EF在世界各地有四十六間教育中心,為學生提供新派大學foundation,而且成績斐然。數據顯示,EF學生獲大學取錄的比率,是完美的百分百,而且當中不乏世界殿堂級的學府。如此驕人成績,可謂事實勝於雄辯,的確顛覆不少家長升學要一條龍的觀念。所以話,識揀一定揀靈活同國際化嘅foundation。想知更多有關EF的課程,可致電21112388查詢。

#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.
