【招生季】国外大学的这些 “隐形” 要求，你知道吗？
Chinese students who attend university in the West need specific skills and habits to succeed. Foremost among the skills is self-discipline. However, many Chinese students often stay up all night talking to friends or family at home. Video game addiction has also become a problem of undergraduate students. These students “game” with their friends in China or somewhere else in the world. They play through the night, and then don’t attend classes. The result is failing grades and being forced to return to China.
Chinese students must speak and participate in class at western universities because participation is graded. Also, students collaborate with their peers and sometimes their professors. This is one of the ways they learn critical thinking and creative expression: by analyzing, developing their own opinions and applying different approaches to problem solving.
Writing in English is one of the most important skills Chinese students will learn. Learning to write well in English includes using footnotes so sources are credited, reading information and reformulating it in your own words, composing different types of essays: argumentative, comparative, persuasive, critical, factual. Chinese students should anticipate spending a lot of time writing papers. need additional assistance with writing or you would benefit from tutoring, visit the Academic Support Center for help
Many Chinese students say that developing the habit of going to the Learning Center or Academic Support Center made them successful. Taking responsibility for your absences from class is also important so if you have to be absent find out what work you missed and complete it. Finally, meet your deadlines. If you know you are going to miss a deadline inform the professor ahead of time.
