An elective course in the Independent Educational Consultant Certificate Program.
This course is an introduction to advising the high school student in the United States who is looking at international English language options in higher education. This course will give an overview of undergraduate degrees taught in English at universities in Canada, Europe (particularly Holland), and the United Kingdom and will explain how the education models differ from US colleges. Cultural adjustment to the host country as well as campus life must also be considered in order for the student to be successful. In addition to understanding cultural considerations, by the end of this course students will be able to articulate both the benefits and the drawbacks of attending university in another country. Students will acquire resources for understanding the mechanics of the application process, to find entry requirements for these systems, and to be able to assist families to understand financial and visa matters.
We highly recommend students complete EDUC_X406 Principles of Independent Educational Consulting prior to enrolling in this course. See enrollment confirmation for login information. Due to high demand, early enrollment recommended.
