[British Boarding School] Complete Guide 2023

Many students and parents currently obtain educational information from the study abroad experiences of relatives and friends, as well as readily available information on the internet. However, everyone's situation is different, and the educational paths of others may not be applicable to each individual student. Amidst a wealth of information, it's not guaranteed that one can find information tailored to their own needs. This guide to education is written for parents who intend to have their children study in British boarding schools or private day schools over the course of three years. Through text, data, and images, parents can gain a comprehensive understanding of the schools' features and, from various perspectives, recognise both the strengths and weaknesses of the schools, ultimately finding the most suitable educational institution for their children. 1. Eight Key Factors for Selecting British Boarding Schools Condensing the school selection strategies of professional educational consultants, this guide helps parents start with these "eight" points to learn how to choose a suitable school for their children's enrollment. First Point: Entry Grade for British Boarding Secondary Schools Second Point: School Size Third Point: Proportion of International Students […]

Looking at the Map of the UK to Choose a University

Map of UK Universities: Recommended UK Cities and University Rankings. When it comes to studying in the UK, one of the most important factors is undoubtedly the university rankings and the distribution of universities on the UK map. For prospective international students and their families who have never been to the UK, it is particularly important to understand the UK map, the distribution of universities in different regions, the rankings of universities near your place of residence, and the available subject options. This article will start with the UK map and the distribution of universities near major UK cities, introducing the rankings and renowned subjects of universities in different regions. We hope to provide valuable reference information for selecting universities for study in the UK. Understanding the UK Map and City Distribution is Key for UK Study When looking at the map, it is evident that the UK is comprised of a large island and a series of smaller islands, hence the name "The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland," a kingdom formed by four countries including England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. The well-known universities […]

UK Medical School Complete Guide

What is the Bachelor of Medicine course in the UK? In the UK, the Bachelor of Medicine course is mainly awarded the degree title MBBS, which stands for "Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery." However, depending on the curriculum design of different medical schools in the UK, the degree titles may vary as follows: MBChB:University of Aberdeen, University of Bristol, University of Dundee, University of Edinburgh, and 13 other medical schools. MBBCh:Cardiff University and Swansea University, 2 medical schools. MBBChir:University of Cambridge Medical School. BMBS:University of Nottingham, Brighton-Sussex, Peninsula, and 3 other medical schools. BM:University of Southampton Medical School. Most medical bachelor's degree programs in the UK are five years long, except for some medical schools that have a six-year system (such as G5 universities like the University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, Imperial College London, etc., or Scottish medical schools like the University of Edinburgh). The curriculum of medical schools in the UK is well-designed, following a "foundation first, practice later" teaching model. In the 5-6 year medical bachelor's degree program, the first 2-3 years are the "foundation theory phase," where students are primarily taught basic knowledge […]

[UK Master's] Master's Degree Complete Guide

Master's degree programs in the UK have always been highly sought after by Hong Kong residents. The reason is that the local Master's programs are globally recognized, and most courses can be completed within 12 months, compared to other mainstream English-speaking countries. Unlike bachelor's programs, Master's courses are built on the basis of students having a certain level of academic theory. They are required to analyse and argue various complex topics, necessitating independent thinking and analytical abilities. Vincent Tang, the Director of Business Development at LINKEDU, shares insights on how to make appropriate choices based on one's career development, professional qualification requirements, and personal interests before considering applying for a Master's. This way, one can truly realize the value of a Master's degree program. How to Choose a Master's Program in the UK Before deciding to enrol in a Master's program, students need to consider why they need to pursue a Master's degree. Based on this question, the decision can be influenced by three main factors: 1. Furthering expertise in the same field: Students may have a strong interest in the content of their current bachelor's program or […]

How was the media mogul created?

In today's technologically advanced society, everyone has smartphones and can become a director, but can everyone really become a director? And can everyone who expresses their opinions online be considered a keyboard warrior or a media professional? After graduating, Andres pursued his directorial dreams by taking a Media Foundation Course. Recently, Andres shared his experience during the Foundation Course. Is the media just about learning filmmaking? Andres found the first semester more interesting, primarily focusing on introductions and teaching video production. In the second semester, they moved away from the studio and delved into books and texts, studying film and journalism. The coursework required a lot of writing and analysis, creating more pressure compared to the first semester. However, these skills are essential for a media professional. Theory and practise Although the theory courses were more challenging, the school provided several exciting opportunities for students to put theory into practice. For example, in the first semester, there was an opportunity to collaborate with students from a music school to shoot a music video. In the second semester, there was a chance to work with an environmental organisation in […]

"Choosing Boarding Schools in the UK: 7 Key Points"

Choosing a boarding school in the UK - Avoidance 1: Only relying on rankings and public exam results. Who says that the higher the ranking of a boarding school in the UK, the better the school? This is the most common misconception among Thai parents, but it is also the most forgivable mistake. We understand that parents want to choose a boarding school in the UK with excellent academic performance for their children, but blindly relying on the rankings often hinders the effectiveness of their child's development plan.After all, the education in boarding schools in the UK focuses not on imparting knowledge to students, but rather on guiding their own talents and promoting holistic development beyond academics. Relying solely on academic grades for rankings is definitely not a balanced measurement indicator. What is even more astonishing is that some boarding schools in the UK adopt a selective approach, meaning that if a student's GCSE grades are not satisfactory, they may be asked to leave. This practice indirectly boosts their average scores in the rankings. Therefore, when parents look at rankings, they should also carefully understand the reasons behind […]

[UK Boarding Schools: Exploring the Land, Sea, and Sky—Unleashing the True Spirit of British Boarding Schools]

In addition to academic subjects, students in UK boarding schools participate in a wide range of extracurricular activities almost every day. The purpose of these activities is to cultivate students' interests and equip them with essential life skills such as critical thinking, independence, and leadership. These skills are meant to be explored, experienced, and practised in the world beyond textbooks, and schools encourage students to find a balance between studying and relaxation. So, when the final bell rings and classes are over, can students rush to the big grass field to play basketball or football with their peers? No, coming all the way to the UK for education, it would be limited to just a "mundane" ball? UK boarding schools offer activities that go beyond what Hong Kong schools typically provide, spanning the realms of "land," "sea," and "sky." Let's start with the "sea"! Rossall School is recognised as one of the schools that offers a traditional British education. Situated on the picturesque coast of Lancashire, the school takes advantage of its geographic location to excel in diving activities. Rossall School has established a Scuba Dive Club for […]

[UK Study Tour: Sending children abroad for summer camps is actually a lesson in "growth" for parents]

I used to know a mother from my previous company whose son, Jason, had just turned 12. She arranged a summer camp at a boarding school in the UK for Jason during the summer break. Knowing that I had studied in the UK before, she called me before his departure to inquire about some information. She told me that she bought a new mobile phone and an international SIM card for him to facilitate communication. Since he had never packed his own clothes, she divided the clothes for each day into numbered bags (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7), each containing clothes, pants, underwear, socks, etc. She also prepared some small gifts for the teachers and classmates, and so on. When she told me about her preparations, my immediate reaction was, "If you have prepared everything for him, what's the meaning?" Later, she brought Jason to me for some "counselling" before his departure, hoping that I could help ease his nervousness. I asked Jason, "Are you afraid of going to the UK alone?" Jason replied, "I'm not afraid, but I'm afraid she will be afraid." He glanced […]

[Durham University: Is it good? My experience studying at Durham for 3 years]

Phoebe, my student from a few years ago, is currently a third-year student at Durham University, studying BA (Hons) Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE). When people find out that Phoebe is studying at Durham University, they often ask her where exactly Durham is. Her response is, "Durham is a small town in the northeast of England, near Newcastle." Of course, unless you're a fan of the English Premier League, you probably haven't heard of Newcastle either. This year is Phoebe's final year at Durham, and she wanted to document her experiences at the university. During her summer break in Hong Kong, we had a meal together, and she shared her insights about Durham, including the city itself, the unique collegiate system, academic performance, extracurricular activities, and support for international students. I have recorded these details, hoping that both prospective and current students can have a better understanding of Durham University. 延伸閱讀 : Durham University Complete guide to studying in the UK 2022 Look at the UK map to choose a university A picturesque, historic city How small is Durham?

[Choosing Subjects at UK Universities: Choosing Subjects is Like Choosing a Life Partner] Balancing preferences and reality

Some people believe that "your academic subject determines your destiny" in university. However, only a small portion of people work in fields related to their academic subjects. Many people regret their choice of subjects after starting their careers, and some even consider changing fields after completing their master's degrees. So how should we choose our subjects from the beginning? It is a profound question. Is studying just for finding a job? Having worked in the overseas education industry for many years, I have noticed that many students and parents hold a deep-rooted belief that studying a professional subject leads to becoming a professional in the future. I often see students influenced by "the most promising industries" or "the top ten popular careers" choose a specific subject when studying abroad in order to secure a good job in the future. However, the definition of "popular careers" is constantly changing. Popular industries and jobs often change along with societal trends. For example, a few years ago, due to increased emphasis on health issues among urban dwellers, there was a surge in demand for physical therapists. But during the 3–4 years […]

[Analysis of the UK University Education System: Foundation Transfer Strategy Requires Early Preparation]

It's summer vacation again, and most UK courses are coming to an end, with students receiving their final grades. Recently, I have been receiving requests for help from students who have completed their university foundation courses. I have categorised these students into two types. The first type is those who have already planned to transfer to another university because they realise that the current university they are progressing to is not suitable for them and they want to transfer to a more preferred one. The second type of students are those who find out that they did not meet the academic requirements to progress due to their grades and are faced with the options of either changing their major or receiving a rejection letter stating, "Unfortunately, we are unable to offer you a place. I am sorry about that." Be Prepared with your UCAS Application The first type of student is more proactive, as they have already made up their minds to transfer and have applied through UCAS, the UK university admission system, after receiving their grades for the first term. They have received conditional offers from other […]

[Art and Design in the UK: Explore Studying Art and Design in London]

Looking at the recent UCAS applications for universities in the UK, it is evident that many international students still have a strong interest in Art and Design subjects. While Art and Design may not have the same professional certifications as fields like Accounting or Physiotherapy, they have evolved beyond traditional paper-and-pencil drawing and now encompass emerging areas such as animation and esports, opening up new design opportunities. Traditional vs. Emerging: Increasingly Promising Job Prospects in Art and Design Even within the field of Art and Design, there is a distinction between traditional and emerging disciplines. The term "traditional" refers to subjects that have historically attracted more student applications and inquiries. Most universities offering Art and Design programmes include these common subjects: Fashion Design 時裝設計 Graphic Design 圖像設計 (一般是指2D平面設計) Illustration 插畫繪圖 Interior Design 室內設計 With the widespread use of computer technology and design software, these traditional subjects have incorporated digital design elements to keep up with the evolving demands of technology. This transformation aligns well with emerging industries such as animation, digital media, electronic gaming, and the like, creating new courses: 3D Games Design 立體影像及遊戲圖像設計 Animation 動畫設計 Product Design […]

[UK Summer Camp: Gain Study Abroad Experience at the Lowest Cost]

With the increasing academic pressure and competition in Asia, many parents are thinking about their children's future and sending them overseas for education, even at a young age, by enrolling them in boarding schools. The trend towards early study abroad is unstoppable. However, without sufficient psychological preparation and communication, studying abroad can become a nightmare for children. Recalling my time at boarding school, some classmates mentioned that they were sent to study in the UK without any psychological preparation, and they all faced serious adaptation issues at the beginning of their study abroad journey. As a new father, I have witnessed the overprotective nature of Hong Kong parents. Many "little masters" and "princesses" are showered with love and care from their parents, the "four elders," or domestic helpers. These children, who have been showered with endless love, are suddenly sent thousands of miles away to the UK to live as boarders, facing everything on their own. The stark contrast is evident, and my classmates initially had a difficult time adjusting and were unhappy. Before sending their children abroad for study, parents can consider letting them participate in summer […]

[Analysis of the British Education System: A-Level or University Foundation: Which is a more solid stepping stone for entry into a UK university?]

In recent years, many parents have been asking whether it is better to choose the traditional high school curriculum (A-Level) or the University Foundation programme. This question has troubled many parents, but each family's situation is different, and each student is an individual. Therefore, I'm sorry to say that there is no fixed answer to this question. We must choose the most suitable option based on the student's abilities and the family's actual situation. So, what exactly are A-Level and Foundation?  First, let me briefly introduce these two types of courses to parents who may have limited knowledge about them. A-Level is the traditional high school curriculum in the UK. It is a two-year programme, and typically, students choose to study 3–4 A-Level subjects. Afterward, based on their interests, they apply to their desired universities and degree programmes through the UK university admissions service, UCAS. Since A-Level is a high school curriculum in the UK, the teaching syllabus does not take into account the situations of international students. It focuses more on understanding and applying academic knowledge. The admission standards of UK universities primarily consider students' A-Level exam […]

[Analysis of the British Education System: Is the IB Programme Suitable Only for Top Achievers?]

Whenever a student tells me that they are studying the IB programme, I can't help but want to give them a big hug and say, "You've worked hard all these years." In the 2018/19 academic year, I came into contact with hundreds of families inquiring about studying in the UK, and a portion of these parents expressed their desire to enrol their children in schools that offer the IB curriculum. These parents believe that the IB system is currently the most internationally recognised curriculum in the world and that it can cultivate students' comprehensive abilities. Of course, this is indeed an advantage of the IB programme. However, not all students are suitable for the IB curriculum, so how should parents consider and choose?Let's first understand what the IB programme is. The full name of the IB programme is the International Baccalaureate, which is widely adopted by international schools around the world, with nearly 5,000 certified IB schools worldwide. At the high school level, the IB Diploma Programme (IBDP) consists of six subject groups and three core components. The six subject groups are: First Language Second Language Individuals and […]

[UK Media] Is studying Media only about being a paparazzo?!

In ancient times, humans primarily relied on paper to disseminate information. In the 20th century, the rise of print and electronic media took place, and now in the 21st century, online media dominates the world. Regardless of the evolving forms, one constant is that "Media and Communication" have always been an integral part of human society. However, in Hong Kong, there are always some students aspiring to study "Media" who are misunderstood by reality and discouraged with comments like, "Will you be working for TVB after graduation?" "So, you'll become a paparazzo?" "Are you a political activist?" People echo these misconceptions, but how well do you really understand "Media Studies"? Today, I would like to briefly discuss the career prospects in the field of Media Studies. Taking UK universities as an example, Media Studies courses in the UK are divided into four main categories: 1. Journalism (More practice-oriented discipline) Journalism programmes have a more targeted focus. In addition to theoretical knowledge, they emphasise hands-on opportunities such as news writing, reporting, and on-camera experience. They mainly cover three mediums: print journalism, broadcast journalism, and web journalism. Some UK universities […]
