【頭條日報:升學專家有話兒】脫歐成留英最佳時機?

想赴英國升學的人士,自然會密切關注英國脫歐後的命運。暫時最直接的影響,莫過於英鎊插水。尤其對於我等曾經歷英鎊一兌十二十三港元的留英學生,今日合指一計,留學英國的費用確實實惠很多,吸引力大增。



不過負笈英國,向來都不是以「平」掛帥。大英帝國出品的優質教育,以及其豐富文化歷史,才是真正賣點。脫歐之後,有人擔心,英國的教育質素會否也隨英鎊插水,大打折扣?



與歐洲一刀兩斷,英國教育最首當其衝,是少了條水喉。英國的高等院校,每年自歐盟得到額外一成半撥款,脫歐後這水掣自然會關。大批留英的歐洲學生,脫歐後會變成「國際學生」,需要繳付較昂貴的海外生學費,這些學生預料到時會大量流失,為各學府的經濟來源帶來衝擊。另外,超過二十萬英國學生受惠的歐洲學術交流活動如Erasmus,停辦也是遲早的事。



聽上去很悲觀?是,但正所謂有危才有機,尤其對想留英的海外學生,這時機或更是不可多得。



在脫歐的不明朗環境下,英國不少教育界人士已經高調敦促政府及各院校要更積極增強競爭力,英式教育質素此刻是只許升不可降。事實上,英國脫歐後教育事務不再受歐盟教育組織所限,可享有高度自由,英式教育要改良、精益求精,當下正是良機。



至於失去歐盟資助及歐洲學生這水源,其實大部份英國學府在國際享負盛名,收不到歐羅,並不會對財政資源構成太大打擊,反而騰出學額能吸納更多海外學生,增加收入。這亦意味學校將會更注重提高迎接歐洲以外海外學生的配套服務及設施,令海外學生受惠。



簡言之,脫離歐洲,英國與英國教育都會被迫放眼歐洲以外的國際社會,更深入地走向世界,對於有心留學英國人士,最終可能反是美事一樁。

#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.
