(apology - chinese version only) 料申美移民與內地同隊 專家:輪候或以年計 2020/7/17 明報專訊   美國總統特朗普前日簽署行政命令,下令取消特區護照與中國護照差別優待,或影響部分港人前往美國,美方暫未公布具體細節。美國國務院數據顯示,美駐港澳領事館去年發出7.7萬多宗非移民簽證。有升學顧問轉述領事館稱,目前持特區護照和中國護照申請學生簽證的年期同維持5年,但有移民顧問擔心,若兩種護照持有人的輪候隊伍合二為一,對特區護照持有人「影響會幾大」。 根據特朗普已簽署的《香港自治法案》,國務卿需在法案生效90天內,即今年10月中前向國會提交「制裁名單」。換言之,名單將在11月初舉行的美國總統大選前出籠。名單提交後60天內,美國財政部長也要制定與制裁名單有大量資金往來的外國金融機構名單。 白宮否認特朗普完全否決制裁名單 彭博社昨引述消息報道,特朗普簽署法案前,團隊已制訂制裁名單,當中包括中國國務院副總理韓正、特首林鄭月娥和警務處長鄧炳強,特朗普不想進一步加劇與北京緊張關係,決定暫不推出;不過,白宮國家安全會議(NS...

Is a 2.7 GPA at MIT for CS bad?

Is a 2.7 GPA at MIT for CS bad?

Say it is bad.  Bad for whom? Bad in what way? Obviously, a 2.7 GPA from MIT is “worse” than a 5.0 GPA* from MIT, but “better” than a 2.7 GPA from University of Southern North Dakota at Hoople, right? Right? Right? No, of course not. Like almost every other statement that includes the word “obviously”, this statement is actually false. In the long run, your GPA does not matter. At all. Three to five years out of college, nobody will ever ask what you...

Post DSE - Studying in USA

Post DSE - Studying in USA

美國「2+2升學途徑」制度歷史悠久,彈性收生造就了不少勵志故事。學生DSE成績差,在港考不進大學不重要,只要肯在社區學院重新出發,願意努力用功讀書,學生還有機會入讀比香港的大學排名更高的世界頂尖學府。 曾就讀社區學院的學生當中亦不乏各界的知名人士,就連蘋果電腦兩位創辦人Steve Jobs和Steve Wozniak也曾就讀二年制的社區學院。Steve Wozniak期後更轉校到UC Berkeley第三年的工程及電腦專業,造就了他日後的成就。 社區學院 vs 博雅學院 除了二年制社區學院之外,美國很多小型的博雅學院,亦是進入頂尖名校的階梯。其實美國很多中產家庭都喜歡將子女送入這一類的大學,皆因教育質素高,教授大部分亦只需專心執教而不需做研究,充滿教育學生的熱誠,同學遇到不明白的時候亦很容易找到教授幫忙。而且由於是小班教學,教授更加熟悉班上的學生,轉校時寫推薦信就更簡單。再加上這類大學選科亦較容易,為學生提供很多支援,所以學生想於兩年後轉到頂尖學府就更得心應手。 美國教育特色 申請時毋須先選主修科,留待第三年才選都可以,因為一般大學課程均有兩年學分為通識課程...

美國入學有彈性 認清目標選學科 (2018年5月2日 東方日報)

美國入學有彈性 認清目標選學科 (2018年5月2日 東方日報)

美國入學有彈性 認清目標選學科 美國向來都是香港學生的升學熱點,除了因為靈活的學制,以及崇尚啟發教育的方針外,當地還有眾多歷史悠久的知名院校,加上畢業後有不少工作機會,令同學不愁出路。大學以外,同學亦可以選擇入讀美國的中學和社區學院,提早適應當地的學校環境,再按部就班升讀心儀大學。   學制相對靈活 提起負笈美國,很多人都以為相關費用會比其他地方高昂,其實當地的學費和生活費均比相像中便宜,麗斯美國留學中心資深教育顧問鄔慧潔(Kitty)說:「根據《QS World University Rankings 2018》公佈的全球大學排名,全球最Top的20間大學中有11間是美國院校,當中不但有4間大學躋身5大,而且麻省理工大學(MIT)更加高踞榜首。與其他國家不同,美國的學制相對靈活,大學一般都設有通識教育課程,會全面地教授不同領域的基礎知識,因此同學不用急於在入學時選擇主修科目,可以先培養興趣,認清目標後才再作決定,即使在Year 3才選定主修科目,亦能趕及順利畢業。17至18歲的同學可能未必清楚了解自己的意向,這種學制便有助他們挑選最合適自己的學科。值得一提的是...
