Tiffany TAN

Graduated from ACSI Singapore, offer received from Chinese University of Hong Kong Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery

I am Tiffany and was graduated from ACS (International), a great school filled with supportive teachers and schoolmates, in November 2018. I was opened to many opportunities such as having numerous exchange programs and internships every year. In particular, I taught in an orphanage during my Vietnam volunteering trip in June 2017, and performed around Italy with my school Philharmonic Orchestra in November of the same year. With the school value of nurturing future leaders, I was grateful to be on the School Prefect and School Ambassador Team, where we supported World Vision and Club Rainbow Singapore by organising a range of charity projects including Choice to Run and Casual Dress Day. I believe ACS (International) is not only a place to learn, but also a place to develop students holistically. After all, don't be afraid to fall, since "The Best Is Yet To Be".

我現在在Adelaide讀書,我來Adelaide 之前,對於這裡的所有事情一點認識都沒有。曾經和家人去了多個大型海外升學展覽,在一次環球升學安排的升學展中,我們認識了林小姐Joanna,諮詢了很多有關於澳洲和紐西蘭的升學資料。那時候她很有耐心與我們傾談,了解我們的需要,還叫我們不用急,可以再慢慢考慮,改天找他們聊也可以。

我們回家想了很久,最後還是到了環球升學的寫字樓找Joanna,因為她的講解很仔細清楚,對我們也非常照顧。直到現在,我在這邊已經開始了第二年的生活,當我與到選科的問題,Joanna也是會不厭其煩地回答我所有問題,給了很非常中肯的意見。謝謝你,Joanna!

在外國讀書和在香港讀書分別很大。在海外,雖然有homestay照顧,但是見不到自己家人,會很不習慣,生活習慣也會隨著時間和環境而改變。在澳洲讀書沒有香港那麼大壓力,老師的教學方式很生動,如果你主動去發問,他們都很用心指導你。在海外讀書,可以訓練自己獨立,令自己有能力面對各種問題,對自己是一個很好的挑戰:)

I am so happy that I can study overseas and I am enjoying my life in Australia now. Before I came, I knew nothing about Australia. But I am glad to meet with Joanna Lin from First Global 6 years ago, she gave me a lot of advice about where to study and the suitabl course I should choose, that's why we are still good friends after many years! I still remember the day I first arrives Australia, I can feel the new start of my life and lot of challenge which bring me a lot of knowledge and interest. My English was not good and I feel shy to speak to other people. But I try my best to talk and learn the way AAustralian vowel not as good as US and UK, howeverm I believe if we use the same grammar, there is no differences between US, UK and Australia. 

Australian dollars were going up when I was studying. Therefore, I need to find a part time job to afford my expenses. During work, I experienced how to deal with clients and learn the cutomer services. This knowledge can never learn at school. It is very good to get a part time job when you are studying. But try not to work with Asian people, this is the best way to earn some money and learn Australian culture at the same time. This is your experience and you never can get it in Hong Kong. 

For me, Perth Australia is a very good place for studying. It is a quet place, and there are not many entertainment attrations. I hate studying when I was in Hong Kong, but I have to read book when I have nothing to do here. Therefore, I found my reading skills improved a lot in Australia. Thanks my parents spent a lot of money for me to study.

If you have a chance to study overseas, please do not think it will be easier than studying in Hong Kong. YOu need to study hard and have your study preparation done to get your degree. There are some people send back because they never study hard.

可能是因為香港讀書壓力太大,教學制度差,一直!想到英國留學。約兩年前中學畢業後,由父母安排以及環球升學林小姐幫助下,終於有機會離鄉別井,體會一下留學的生活。

初到英國,雖然環境以及生活方式和香港不同,但我適應得比相像中快很多。英國人優閒自在,友善以及平易近人,那怕你是個陌生人,也能與你詳談。在一個學習壓力低的環境,事半工倍。

經過一年大學預科課程,我順利地成為現大學一年班,修讀土木工程系學生。可能是第一年吧,課程不太難,功課也不太多,令我有時間參加不同活動。我住的宿舍在大學西邊,上課的地方卻在校園的東邊,每天步行近約半小時,可見校園之大。但是每天走過一片草地,烏語花香,也算是種享受。

不過,英國人比較沉悶,晚上一般都在酒吧消遣。然而,大學也提供不同的學會讓學生參加,應有盡有,一般都以學生經營。有些學會能讓學生了解不同國家文化,有些學會讓學生一展所長。

到英國留學,除了課堂上的得著,更大的得著是與人溝通的能力。課堂上,坐在身旁的,是來自不同國家,不同社會,不同種族的同學;下課後,很多學會也有來自世界各地的學生參加。所以,運用英文溝通是學習上重要的一環,我也感覺自己英語溝通能力進步不少。

I didn't like to study aboard at first, as I was afraid of losing contact with my best friends. But after recognizing the hardness of being offered a place in local universities as there will be a huge number of secondary school fraduates from HKDSE and HKALE in 2012, I made the decision to study in Vencouver under encouragements from my family members. 

I have been here for 8 months and I love this place. Studying in the world's second largest multicultural country makes me know much more about the world, and I realised I was a frog in the well. I have many friends in here now, while not losing contact with any of my best friends in Hong Kong. 

Hong Kong is a really small city, it is worthwile to study aboard so as to explore more about the world. And the benefits just outweigh the drawbacks.

I really would like to thank Katherine from First Global Education for providing me free and useful advice to study in Canada, and for helping me to solve troublesome issues such as accomodation on campus.

I am a year one student of Flinders University, studying Bachelor of Psychology. I have been staying in Adelaide for a year, lifestyle in Adelaide is much different from Hong Kong, it is very simple and relaxing. The locals here are really helpful and kind to the international students, so I get used to the life here soon after I come here. Apart from the lifestyle, the study method is also different form Hong Kong, whenever I have some questions on my study, I have to find the answer by myself or asking my teacher, not only just wait for the answers from the teacher passively. Consequently, I become more initiative in learning progress or even in widening my social circle here. Moreover, studying abroad give me a chance to experience different cultures and face a lot of challenges, such as learning how to make friends with different nationalities or renting houses. All these challenges make me become more independent and mature. When I am facing these difficulties, the staffs in First Global Education are really helpful; they give me a lot of advice and still keep a contact with me even after I went to Adelaide for almost a year. Their advices are very useful so that I can enjoy my school life here and cope with all those difficulties. I would say studying abroad is really a worth doing because it improves my English skills and social skills which can make me become more competitive in finding a job in the future, which Hong Kong people most concerned about.

現在的我,已從MIBT升上了Deakin Universeity的大學二年級。在Melbourne讀書,這是我以往所不敢想像的。
從以前已知道,香港那種填鴨式教育,並不適合我。但由於出國在外,人生路不熟,父母又擔心我一個人應付不了新生活,所以就一直把事情擱下。但在中七公開試以後,這念頭又重新燃起。

找過數間幫忙海外升學的公司,絕大多數的也抱著這是一門生意的心態去替我介紹,而且那種硬繃繃的態度也不太令人喜歡。輾轉之間,找到了Joanna的環球升學。

不像我所看見的其他學生,他們在去外國前總要忙得焦頭爛額,聯絡學校、選課程、交學費、辦簽證......我所要做的,就只是把自己的資料交給她,其他的,Joanna已幫我都處理好了。(當然,機票還是要自己買的)
令我最驚喜的是,在我到達Melbourne之後,Joanna仍會跟我聯絡,關心我的近況,而且更會飛來Melbourne找一聚 "環球之友" 吃飯!! 我朋友跟我說,他的agent公司在他來到澳洲以後就好像消失了....更令我感到自己能找到環球的幸運!^^

在這邊讀書,沒有香港那樣大壓力,但也不代表可以就此放鬆。相反,我在這學到了獨立、管理時間跟解難能力。英文也大有進步! 家人也為我的成長感到很高興呢!!^^
謝謝你,Joanna & First Global!!

For a student studying in Australia, getting into a top UK university without A level result is deemed ambitious and challenging. Definitely not a conventional route that an education consultancy would suggest to students. I was pretty determined to go to UK for undergraduate course, and have reached several agencies for advices. To my least surprise, the replies I received from them are unanimous - starting from foundation course at a lower rank university, meaning that I would have to repeat another pre-U course before admitting to the undergraduate course. The reply is pretty discouraging.

 

I stumbled across First Global’s website and I thought I would try my luck. First impression I received from a brief phone call with Joanna is that she barely mentioned the word ‘cannot’ nor rejected my bold proposal, instead she encouraged me to opt for it. It was considered late when I sought for her help on the application. Her professionalism in the field is unquestionable, especially managing the timeline of university application and visa application. Besides, her hands-on approach deserves a special mention. I was in rural Japan with limited access to internet and very often, documentation requires signature. Time was a constraint and in retrospect, the application process did test her patience, which makes a distinctive difference to the services she provided. I in the end received offer from the university and spent 3 wonderful years there.

 

I have recommended my cousin and a close friend to Joanna when they were looking for overseas education, because I feel like Joanna customizes solution to her students based on their unique background and career aspirations, not the blanket advice that we would get from most of the agencies in the market. With a First Class Honor in my pocket and a MT offer from a global financial institution, I have been thinking what my path would turn out if I hadn’t met Joanna, who assisted me to turn a proposal into a reality. From my experience, what I am certain is that she put the interest of students over the interest of the business, and that distinguishes First Global from the crowd.

當年準備到海外讀書,無意之中在一個論壇上發現了環球教育這間顧問公司,跟媽媽以不妨一試的心態上去了解。

林小姐的熱誠同耐心的講解都令我覺得這間公司是可以值得信任,最後我選擇了位於南澳省的亞德萊德。

來澳洲讀書,不但給我一個好好的體驗亦改變了我一生。來澳洲讀書後,我學習了自我照顧,獨立,與人溝通,這些都是課本以外所學到的。

畢業後,我繼續留在澳洲工作,並且成為了澳洲公民。林小姐的專業,熱誠及親切態度是我在別的顧問公司沒法找到的。

衷心感謝林小姐,不管在我學生時期,還是現在,她都一直無間的幫助我。現在雖然已經畢業,也不再是她的客人,卻沒有完結我們的關係,而是更進一步,成為了朋友。謝謝妳,Joanna。

大家好,我是楊樂詩,今年正在新加坡的Lasalle College of the arts就讀level 1的performing arts。

一直以來,我對Musical Theatre這個範疇都非常有興趣,而在機緣巧合之下,我在網上找到First Global這所留學中介公司。First Global的所有員工都非常有耐性,每當我遇到問題的時候,他們都會不厭其煩地為我解答,多得他們清晰的講解和細心的協助,我才有機會找到一間心儀的學校,就讀自己喜愛的科目。我在新加坡雖然只有短短大半年的時間,但我非常享受這裡的生活。在學校裡,老師除了用心教導學生外,他們亦很關心每個學生的生活,所以我作為一個初來報到的國際留學生,我亦很快適應了生活。

Lasalle College of the arts的學生除了當地人外,還有很多不同的國際學生,例如:英國,印尼,馬來西亞等等,所以在這裡生活我也了解到很多不同國家的文化,而且我亦很享受這裡的生活。

Studying English Literature and Drama in England is the most exhilarating experience in my life thus far! I’d love to express my heartfelt gratitude to First Global Education: without their phenomenal one-to-one student support service, this study journey would be improbable frthe start. I came across my academic advisor Joanna Lin in spring 2012 through my best friend’s recommendation. She was a highly accountable and dependable individual, whom offered me superb suggestions of international pathways, and invaluable study aboard advice, not to mention connecting me to Cambridge Education Group, where I later earned a Foundation degree in International Relations, Psychology and Media Studies at Oncampus London, and subsequently progressed to the exuberant sporting Loughborough University.

 

Living a classic fairy tale as a ballerina for a 3-night dance showcase, dancing flamboyantly at a salsa Christmas ball, performing belly dance at hafla, pole dancing tribally at societies winter showcase; playing polo on a saddle, spinning on a bicycle; teaching English to Italian primary students via interactive group activities in Florence and Bologna villages -- I’ve broken out my comfort zone, embraced cultural diversity, and explored a varied range of British university activities that I never had a chance to take part, as a HK college student in the bygone days. Soon it’ll be my 5th year studying in the UK, and I’m eternally grateful to First Global Education for guiding me through the passage of my dreams during the hazy days of my life.
