10月19日周三18:30  “非传统学生”美国留学申请指南

Wednesday, October 19, 18:30  College Path and Guidelines for Non-Traditional Students


“非传统学生”是指学生在高中毕业后因个人原因或职业原因中断学习超过一年,之后再进入大学学习的情况。这种模式适合那些有成熟规划、较为独立的学生。在大家熟知的常青藤联盟之一的哥伦比亚大学,无论是高中毕业后直接进入大学学习的传统学生还是有超过一年中断期的非传统学生,都能在这里获得充分的资源。本次讲座中,EducationUSA请到了哥伦比亚大学通识教育学院的招生官Diana Kim女士,为大家介绍美国大学的“非传统教育”。 


A non-traditional student is a student whose education was interrupted due to personal or professional reasons and now seeks a college experience tailored for a more mature and independent student. As you may know, Columbia University is an Ivy League institution that provides a rigorous liberal arts education to both traditional students (coming straight out of high school) and non-traditional students (who have a minimum of 1 year gap in education). The Shanghai American Center is happy to host Ms. Diana Kim, Admissions Manager, School of General Studies, to deliver a speech about non-traditional study at the center.
