to International Students
Cambridge Stratfords approach for the orientation of international students?
Our goal is to Help students
complete their own self-orientation to collegiate study in the USA with the aid
of a pocket-sized resource that empowers them to learn and adjust when and where
their individual needs arise. (i.e. 100 Things Every International Student
Ought to Know, etc.)
The purpose for the Guidebook is:
To give the right kind of information to international students in the fastest
way possible so they can use it to begin solving their own personal issues and
problems in adjusting to learning on the college level in the USA from that day
What age groups
are best served by this text?
While international students are
predominantly entering the USA as new college or graduate students to advance
their career and educational goals, any age group planning a future enrollment
in higher education in the USA will find the text valuable as a problem-solving,
navigating, and web-linked referencing guide.
Some examples for use include:
- Required text and reference for
colleges and universities offering formal orientations for new international students
enrolling in undergraduate and graduate courses.
- Self-help guidebook for registrants
in international instructional courses and orientation programs offered by non-USA
based institutions that prepare students for STUDY ABROAD ( including governments
and corporations, etc.)
- Supplemental resource for students
enrolling in English-as-a-foreign-language institutes/summer courses/and private
organizations that prepare international students for competency tests in the
English language (i.e. TOEFL, etc.)
- Transition textbook by any instructor
teaching new international students who wants to help students learn how to ease
their adjustment and overcome the common pitfalls associated with collegiate level
learning and living in the US culture.
