The Admission and Placement of Students From the Pacific-Asia Area. A Workshop Report. Australia, Ceylon, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Singapore, Okinawa, and Pacific Islands.
Jameson, Sanford, Ed.
This is the report from the workshop for the admission and placement of students from the Pacific-Asia Area. The basic purpose of this workshop was to bring together a group of experienced admissions officers and resource persons with expertise in the particular countries to be covered, in order to study, in some depth, foreign educational systems as they relate to education in the United States. The admission and placement recommendations resulting from the workshops are then made available to the broader admission community through follow-up workshops. There are 3 major sections to this report: Hong Kong-Malaysia-Singapore; Ceylon-India-Pakistan; and Australia-New Zealand. Also included is an overview of the panel discussions that covers Okinawa and the Pacific Islands. The recommendations in each of the country sections represent a consensus of the participants on how applicants from these countries should be considered for admission and placement in institutions in the United States. This report is intended as a practical reference guide for admission officers in the United States who are considering applicants from the countries discussed. (Author/PG)
