【信報:寄宿學校攻略】赴英前最後裝備

同學仔如已鐵定於2017年赴英留學,學校搵好了,留位手續辦好了,也千萬別開始印印腳等上機。留學路來到這裡雖已進入直路,但很多裝備功夫,不論是實際上還是心理上,現在才真是要開始。

留英的實際準備工作有三大件,必須周全辦妥方可出發,第一件是監護人事宜。之前講過,大部分寄宿學校會要求18歲以下國際學生擁有一名成年的英國合法居民作監護人。家長可委託持有英國護照和英國住址的當地親友擔任,不然的話,也可以透過信譽良好的監護人公司,代為安排合適的寄宿家庭及監護人。

其次,是申請英國簽證,手續在出發前六個月已需開始,先是預約並進行肺結核測試,亦要在網上為簽證程序申請帳號。臨走前三個月,要填妥及簽署網上的申請表格。出發前兩個月,便要在網上預約時間親臨簽證中心遞交申請表及生物辨識資料。一般在完成所有手續後約三至十個工作天,同學便可親臨或以郵寄方式領取簽證。特別提醒:由於學生必須達到英國簽證移民署計分制度的40分,才能成功申請到簽證,同學仔申請簽證前宜先往有關網址自行計算是否達標,方才啓動申請程序。
第三,英國設國民健康服務體系(NHS),新規定要求非歐盟學生網上申請簽證時,必須繳交每年150英鎊的「健康税」。

當然,想保證留學生活可以順利過渡,心理準備功夫同樣不能忽略。我鼓勵同學仔以大包圍形式掌握英國資訊,如參加留英講座、聽取留英人士經驗分享,或是透過網絡、書籍、報刊,把上至英國風土文化、飲食習慣,下至學校環境、寄宿生活每日流程、課外活動選擇等資訊都消化一下,事關資訊掌握得越多,就越能為心理的culture shock 避震。

今天(2月11日)英識教育聯同「Oh!爸媽」於朗豪坊Cordis Hotel舉辦英國升學展,會提供大量留英前裝備的資訊供查詢參考。假若有同學仔情況剛好相反:心理已有赴英準備,但卻未有報讀任何學校?不要緊,很多頂尖學校如Cheltenham College, Clifton College, Bedford School等在同一升學展上,也會作2017年入學的最後召集,同學想作最後衝刺亦為時未晚也。

#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.
