【信報:預備班出路】EF課程靈活取勝
英諺有云:「勿將所有雞蛋放在同一籃子裏」,這道理眉精眼企的香港人豈會不曉。不過我還是常常提醒不少家長,子女留學也是一項投資,所以有時也要分散風險來提高靈活性,切忌孤注一擲,揀基礎課程(foundation)便是上佳例子。
 
「我想阿仔/阿女入Durham大學,梗係要佢讀Durham大學的foundation啦。」不少家長都會理所當然如此想。
 
未必「包生仔」
在理想世界,這種想法絕對正確。然而又是那句:天氣不似預期,有時世事未能盡如人意,報讀Durham大學的foundation,未必「包生仔」入到Durham大學,萬一一條龍升學大計失敗,已讀的foundation就未必適用於報讀其他大學,於是無後著可走。有時是人心難測,阿仔/阿女讀完某大學的foundation,可能突然想入其他大學,甚至乎想去世界其他國家升學,之前的foundation,恐怕又變得無用武之地了。
 
Be like water, my friend-學李小龍話齋,靈活彈性,有時才是生存之道,這也是世界各地大學foundation概念應運而生的原因。顧名思義,這類課程是為針對幫助學生升讀世界各地大學的廣泛需要而設,當中的佼佼者莫過於EF Education First。
 
香港人認識EF,大都因為它的語言課程及各種備試課程。其實不講不知,EF是全球最大的Foundation教育中心之一,學生可透過他們的foundation報讀世界各地多間高等學府。想報讀他們的課程,不妨打去21112388問問。EF的foundation之能夠如此靈活有彈性,可考入世界多間大學,正因為課程以每個學生的個人興趣、才華及強項度身訂造,根據其學術及職業目標設計課程及時間表,並致力發展同學的自主學習能力及適應大學能力。另外,也為他們申請大學路上提供最貼身的指導和支援,引領他們規劃自己的職業導向。
 
這種既全面卻又個人化的foundation,聽來彷彿too good to be true,但背後卻有輝煌成績表作支持。
 
以EF Education First為例,其學生擁有百分之百大學學位課程取錄率,當中不少更是全世界享負盛名的殿堂級學府。這彪炳成績,證明EF獨創的靈活foundation確實有成功的道理。

#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.
