Program taken at Dean College: Dual Diploma Program

It was a wise decision for me to choose Dean College after Form 5 in Hong Kong. In addition to saving the time of the Form 6 (mainly for the DSE exam prep), after two years at Dean College, I was admitted to quiter a few prestiggious universities, including UC Berkeley, University of Virginia, University of Wisconsin - Madison, and others.

Unlike community colleges, Dean College is a private liberal arts university, Professors at the College is happy to write a letter of recommendation for their students. In addition, students help each other, senior students are willing to give valuable advice to the junior younger ones. I must say that if you are willing to work hard, you will get a good GPA. Timmy added that in addition to academic achievement, students should actively participate in some extra-curricular activities. For example, he went to Mexico to participate in a volunteer activity one summer through a voluntary organization (UBELONG).
