[ Last call for Fall Intake 2023  2022.07.20 ]

The DSE results are known, students who might change their mind now and would like to go to the United States can still do so for the September intake. The USA has two academic systems - the Semester system that starts in September and January, and the Quarter system that starts in the end of September, January and April. This means you can still apply now for colleges that start at the end of September.  

For DSE students who wish to enter a four-year university, we still have several universities that still accepting applications, they are located in California, Seattle, Boston and New York. Students over 16 years old and are in Secondary 4 and 5 can also consider to have an early college start by entering a 2-year community college, after which they can directly transfer to the third year of university.  This path can save the student the stressful year preparing for the DSE.

Note that some colleges provide a hybrid classes of online and face-to-face classes, so the class mode is quite flexible.

Litz will also apply for university and assist the visa application for our students. Note that no COVID-19 quarantine is required when entering the United States.

In terms of courses, we found that in addition to business administration, engineering and computer science, which are always popular, more students have been choosing psychology, medical and nursing and sports related subjects recently.

For more details, get in touch with our college counselor now.

At this year’s Golden Globe Awards ceremony, alum Chloé Zhao won the Best Director and Best Drama Motion Picture - with “Nomadland”. Although it seems all glitz and glam now, Zhao has worked hard for her mega-success, and her winding, history-making path may surprise you.

The Chinese director, screenwriter and producer got her start at 27 years old, when she moved from Beijing to attend NYU's Tisch School of the Arts to pursue her dreams in film. There, she created her standout 2010 debut, “Daughters”, a short film about a 14-year-old girl in rural China who tries to escape an arranged marriage. Already signaling her future success, the short film won several awards, including Best Student Live Action Short at the Palm Springs International ShortFest. In essence, her tremendous talent was evident from the start.

The Tisch program was an incredible opportunity for Zhao, as she also got the chance to develop her first feature film in 2015, titled “Songs My Brother Taught Me”. Premiering at Sundance, it was a spectacular step into the film industry that enlisted Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker in the production. Detailing the lives of two Native American siblings who live with their single mother on the Pine Ridge Reservation, it showcased the complexity of Zhao's work.

What's like 

When you experience a different culture through educational and cultural exchange you gain a deeper understanding of yourself and those around you- deepening your knowledge of foreign cultures and strengthening international relationships.

Make Lasting Connections

When you live with a host family, you are integrated into the family and temporarily become part of it. By doing so, you become aware of the inner concerns, hopes, and dreams of a family, a city within USA. And with this realization comes the corresponding knowledge of what it means to belong to your own particular country and culture.

Self Developments

Participants develop leadership skills, self-confidence and a greater understanding of the complexities of the world around them. Getting to know the locals, experiencing USA culture, and living as they do; these are things tourists miss, and this is where you really discover the way of life in USA.

Again, your "best school" should be the one that suit you best. Also ask yourself, can you handle the study of the school you aspire to? Will you study happily at that school?
