【教育王國】【12個基礎課程推薦】杜倫大學Durham University

在我讀書的年代,基礎課程往往是同學在公開試失手後的後著,因此它給予大部分人的印象,就猶如香港的lVY或副學士般,是個次等的選擇。不過近年情況已經大有改變,隨著越來越多有份量的大學相繼推出基礎課程,各課程亦能配合不同學制的改革,例如A Level 轉DSE,難怪越來越多學生已將基礎課程視為升學的正規大路,甚至是晉升大學的一條捷徑。


對於基礎課程,我的見解是「水能載舟,亦能覆舟」。一方面,如果選擇得宜,基礎課程確實可以用作入大學的捷徑,但是另一方面,家長和同學也要留意,基礎課程到底是個沒甚麼官方認可的資歷,携著它往往不能回香港或赴其他地方升學,非常欠缺彈性,所以同學要認真考慮到底這類課程所能帶領你去的終點,是否你心目中要抵達的目的地。

舉個例子,同學如終極夢想是入牛津大學,那麼無論你修讀再出色的基礎課程,或成績如何有flying colours,最終希望也可能要落空,因為牛津大學一般對基礎課程畢業生,是不予以考慮的。另外,即使某些大學有提供自家的基礎課程,但也不代表可以直通所有學科,如Durham大學著名的 PPE(Philosophy, Politics and Economics),大學本身所提供的的基礎課程基本上是此路不通的。如果事前沒有查詢清楚,或沒有清楚目標,一年的時間精神和金錢,可能就會付諸東流,欲速反而不達。

然而基礎課程終究是可以為有心升英國大學的同學殺出一條快捷血路,重點是大家一定要目標先行,兼且要懂得揀選,因此我將為大家逐一介紹十二個非常值得推介的大學基礎課程。

Durham University

杜倫大學的基礎課程是我兩大星級首選推介的之一。有些人為Durham冠以北部牛劍的美譽,它是全英國最具歷史的大學之一,擁有深厚文化底蘊,學校仍然行傳統的house system。多年來在各個範疇大放異彩的校友眾多,007 羅渣摩亞就是其一。

Durham是英國能躋身全球一百大的大學之一,在QS全球大學榜排名七十四,在英國更是排名第七,絕對稱得上是頂尖學府。校内有九成的學科都位列全英十大,包括經濟、教育、法律、生物科學、商業管理、化學、政治、哲學、運動科學等等,可見學校出類拔萃的範疇廣泛;不論是傳統科目如歷史、法律,抑或新興學科如運動科學和商業研究,都同樣優秀。我常常說﹕ 學校排名有升有跌,但校譽與格調卻是永恒不變的。我覺得杜倫大學就是大學的典範,擁有絕佳的校譽與格調。

杜倫大學的基礎課程所提供的升學途徑看似不多,只有三個: 1) 商業、經濟和會計 2)科學與工程 3) 社會科學,法律和人文學。然而同學憑這三大途徑可以進入很多杜倫大學的學系,科目選擇眾多。

芸芸學科中,我誠心推介它的法律系,因為其法學院是全英十大,我個人更認為它是繼牛津劍橋和St Andrew’s 以後,英國最出色的法律學院。同學若能夠透過基礎課程進入如此頂尖的法律學院,是非常可貴的機會。

杜倫大學全球排名七十四,九成學科都是全英十大,但同學們千萬不要因收生門檻低而輕敵!學生的校內成績 (Progression Requirement) 需達到70-80% ,才可升讀心儀學科的Year 1。

 

課程選擇:

Business, Economics, Accounting and Finance 商科、經濟、會計及金融

Science and Engineering 科學及工程學

Humanities, Law and Social Science 人文科學、法律及社會科學

#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.
