Handbook on the Placement of Foreign Graduate Students, 1990 Edition.
Paver, William J., Ed.
This handbook is designed to facilitate the placement of foreign students in U.S. colleges and universities. While it particularly emphasizes graduate and undergraduate admissions, it also provides information on many upper secondary and postsecondary programs as well. The handbook provides educational structure profiles on 131 countries and the Canadian provinces, each of which includes information on the country's educational system, their grading system, advice for admissions officers, and additional information or sources dealing specifically with each country listed. The educational system sections are coded with credentials identified by type and level. The grading system sections are generally drawn from reports published by Projects for International Education Research and the World Education Series of the American Association of Collegiate Registration and Admissions Offices. The advice sections provide general guidelines for admission and placement of students. Contains a bibliography of 11 items. (GLR)
