Classement prepa hec option scientifique
Not as hard as in France. The Baccalaureate prepared me well for my classes. I have finally figured out what I need to do to get an A in all my classes. Now I just need to work hard to do this. What advice do you have for people applying abroad or who might study in the country you picked.
If not, talk with students currently attending that university. There all always some small complications with forms, grades, requirements especially coming from a different country. This was vital for my application to UT. I had a very nice lady watch my application: UT is a big school and you need someone to help you get through the colossal bureaucracy in the application process. For UT, Lisa Lockhart is the woman that helped me. She loves students coming from abroad.
So if you are thinking about apply to UT and are serious about it, please contact me so I can give you all her contact information plus go and talk to her about you. In what university are you studying and what subject s are you studying? How much did you have to pay to sign up for classes? How much do you have to pay for other expenses books, rent, food, etc.? The books I had to buy for the first quarter ended up being quite expensive around total but that is for excellent text books in chemistry and maths, which I will need for the rest of the year and will, without any doubt, reuse throughout my studies.
The cost of the books actually really depends on your studies usually the science books are more expensive. You also have the opportunity to sell your text books once the quarter is over. The price of the food and the rent is calculatd together and its about 10, for the entire year with a 19 meal plan per week. You can pick different mealplans, for example 10 or 14 meals per week.
What problems have you had? Just one good advice is to check your college email regularly or actually daily and watch out for payment deadlines otherwise late payment fees add up, which happened to a friend of mine.
What are the good things in life at university where you are? The great things at UCSB are numerous. The list would be endless, but i think that the major asset of this university is the social life and the environment there.
With the ocean 20 feet from the dorms and a beautiful and amazing campus, with a lagoon and spectacular view, the atmosphere there is not only very pleasant but it turns out that people there are extremely friendly and always there to help you.
The atmosphere is very laid back and "chill" as people say, which i particularly like. One of the best things about UCSB is also the fact that the social life is omnipresent, but that despite the reputation of the university being a party school, the academic level and program is excellent. It is known that for example the chemistry department is excellent, with extraordinary teachers, and numerous noble prize being given to staff and members.
Socially, how are things going? Great, good, so-so, or pretty lousy? The social life is amazing. I met my best friends and my group of friends the very first few days, even before school even started.
Some say differently, but in my case I turned out extremely lucky, where one of my roomate became my very best friend there. The party life over there is very lively, especially Halloween I learned that people all across California and even from other states, or even from Hawaii, come to UCSB for our extraordinary halloween celebration. Otherwise, an entire list of groups and associations is available on campus for people to join, such as the ski and snowboard club, the outdoor club, the foreign language club and many more.
Academically, how hard are you having to work? I think that this first quarter was easier than the future ones which was very nice to start out smoothly. But the most important thing is to keep up with the work. Since there is noone there pushing you to go to class or do to your homework, it is very easy to start lagging and not working. A vital thing you have to learn is to manage your time correctly.
Subjects there are done in much more depth that in high school in france, which requires more work and attention. But overall, i would have to say that this first quarter was a good way to start out, with not a horrible amount of work but just enough to challenge me and keep me focused.
How successful do you seem to be so far academically? So far, I managed to get straight As, even though i am well aware of the fact that the next quarters will be more difficult and that I will have to provide a greater effort to obtain the same grades.
I would definitely encourage people to study abroad. Be sure to go to an orientation weekend during the summer to check out the campus and already to start becoming familiar with the whole college system and class registration. It is of course preferred but you can easily change your major, which a lot of people end up doing some people actually come undeclared but coming from out of state it is preferred to have an idea.
Exactly how much did it cost you to travel to your university from France? I have no idea, roughly 3 pounds, plus pounds for an extra Russian course. First semester I spent pounds on books, I am in catered accomodation, therefore my food is paid for in my accomodation fees which are about of 3 pounds for the whole year, including rent, food breakfast and dinner , heating, water and electricity. Excellent teaching, and teaching resources too, Meeting new people, but I guess this is the same in every university.
I situate myself in a 2: Knowing the country and the spirit of teaching are a big plus to help understand the way the British educational system works. Having a lot of imagination helps too. And leaving parents, lovers, friends behind is hard, but relationships never fail or carry on as we expect them to anyway.
I sincerely believed my boyfriend would not be able to be faithful and that things would be over, but things only got better, just as with my parents. My major is International and Intercultural Studies. These include 2 social sciences, 1 math class, 1 science class, 1 art, 2 history classes, 2 theology, 2 philosophy, etc. This semseter for example I was taking: I chose not to do French, as I have been taking Spanish in high school and plan on going to South America next year , and International relations not a core class, but a "major" class.
Howevr, scholarships are granted to many. How much do you have to pay for other expenses books, rent, food,etc. Evry class requires at least 1 book. You take 5 clasees per semester Rent in NYC trying to find an apartment for next year is super expensive Food is included with a cafeteria card I believe in the dorm expense.
However cafeteria food is not the best.. The problems I have encountered mostly last year as I am now a sophomore are: The good things at my school are the fact that is in Manhattan. My school has another campus the main one in the Bronx, where there is a real campus with lots of grass and tress etc. The staff team is pretty good I must say and I have encountered some great professors. My campus is small, which i like, although some may get tired of it.
Socially, it was sometimes difficult I do have 1 or 2 close friends. However I have met a wide range and a variety of people from everywhere in the world, all type of ethnicities, social backgrounds etc. Knowing people will really help-big time.
Acadamecally, you DO have to work. Especially if your parents are paying a year for you to go to a school here. This is not "la fac". My GPA is about a 3. There is a lot of opportunity here I feel , and I am intellectually challenged in most of my classes- I plan on going to Argentina for a semester next fall, and would like to do an internship summer at the UN.
I must say that I feel confident here about job opportunities, and do feel like its up to me to make it happen. All of last year I was thinking about coming back and doubting this was the place for me New Yorkers are very peculiar. For the rest of the states, they are what Parisians are to the French people: Now, and only now do I realize that this was the right choice.
I am currently studying at McGill university Montreal in an International Development studies program. Electricity, Heating and lighting is included in the cost for most appartments. Other than that simply make sure to get a student visa before you arrive or they will make you cross the american border and come back in.
Lots of free time to develop autonomous study and to extend your education to much of what is outside of the classes - I am startin and association with 15 ppl from varied backgrounds- called AbeO, the site will be online soon I will send it over when it is functional - it is an association that seeks to produce change from what is absent in the world and that should be present starting with the youth.
There is much flexibility in choosing your courses and much personal fullfilment in actually constructing your own degree out of a diffusion of courses. The university is in the city centre, so it is very conveniently placed. Most of the teachers are high class, yet I would not recommend taking a degree in sociology or anthropology nor psychology at Mcgill.
The other courses in the arts faculty are very stimulating. Mcgill uses very up to date technology for courses, there are generally 5 to 6 different types of supporting material for the course. The general population of students originate from English-speaking Canada or the USA, so penetrating into the vibrant Quebec culture must be undertaken by other means.
For people who are generally afraid of being exposed to cold temperatures, Montreal is the place to be in order to disarm that sort of fear. Allthough the sound of resonates as something lethal, it really is not that bad, today for instance I comfortably dressed as I would on a winter day in Grenoble. It only occasionally reaches cold past Socially and culturally Montreal is an amazing city. Large enough to accomodate 4 Million ppl, yet the overall vibe is intimacy.
Both the Anglo, Franco and Quebec culture can be found separately and interrelatedly, therefore creating ia very rich and diverse socio-cultural environment. But especially in readings and writing skills as well as good structural analysis. But, there is still much space left for improvement and not only for myself but also in the Mcgill grading system - which is very close to the standards of the OIB or at least to what they might look like in university.
I was taken up there, but it costs approximately pounds for a return ticket. Books are very expensive, but you can find them in libraries or buy them second hand. If new, books are reaaaaally expensive about 40pounds each , but they can all be taken in the library and rented I have been renting mine since the begining of the year.
The university has loads of facilities and everything sports, computers, work studios etc The student union is great as well, with loads of societies, sports available, its own bar and club, cheap and safe nights out. The social part of it is the best!!! Lectures give you the basic outlines and you have to do research, critical analysis of theories etc I study BA english literature, with a sociology module. I also took up as a free module icelandic at UCL university.
The transport is very expensive, as is food. Being in literature I needed to buy many books, they are not too expensive about 1. A lot of books are at the library, but we still need to purchase quite a lot. Most of my expenses are spent in food and books. I got lost the first week! It is rather difficult to know where you are because the city is so big.
I did not have any serious problems, I adapted quite easily, though I found at first it was difficult to make friends at uni. Things have been very difficult the first month, as I had difficulty to make friends, but to live in a hall of residence enabled me to meet many people. Now everything is fine, I have met lots of people and made good friends. There is always something to do in London ,the city is really great to ive in, socially and culturally.
The work is not overwhelming, we need to work a lot alone and that may be the difficult thing to adapt to. But if we follow every modules, and do extra work of at least 2 hours a day, it is very easy to follow. I found the reading difficult at first, having to read 3 books a week in literature and other pieces of writting in sociology. This is the hardest to keep up. I have not yet had any grades; but I participate a lot in lessons and the teachers seem pleased with the level I have. I am following a year 2 sociology module with no difficulty at all.
This is a really great experience I am living and regret not at all my choice, thank you for everything. I would say everything is going pretty well! But I know, the amount will increase and some student who did the foundation last year told me it was quite stressful at the end of the year. I thought some international students did very BAD works from my point of view.. I had a few problem for the social security number and the cell phone because you need an SSN for that, but everything works out at the end.
The classes are really interesting. You get to meet new people and share a passion, as well as destress yourself from all the pressure you may get by being enrolled in many classes and wondering if you will ever succeed as an international student.. I know that being part of a sport team is intensive but really fun. Just be careful, it asks lot of commitment and time but if you like it is simply great!!! This is a very open-minded place with a lot of diversity, close to a big city Boston where a lot happens, good transportation and a lot of groups where you can "fit in.
And you are abroad!!! You just need to find a balance between Americans, foreigners and weird people lol and then, socially, everything is perfect. Officiellement, la circulaire restera en vigueur pour eux. Le risque de cette mesure? Pour illustrer cette augmentation, prenons un second exemple.
