L’entrainement pour les entretiens d’entrée à l’université

Judi Hall, formatrice en prestation orale a Genève, peut aider les élèves à gagner en confiance dans ce domaine. Pas inutile en préparation d’entretiens pour les universités.  Sur son site web  (http://www.vocaldevelopment.ch/index.htm), on retrouve des témoignages.

Par exemple..

« My son took coaching lessons with Judi as he had an interview at Imperial College London, to study medicine.  He learned how to gain confidence and speak clearly and effectively in front of an intimidating audience. He improved his body language and posture and learned how to deal with stress. He practised key questions that were asked in the interview.  I could see how his confidence had improved,  thanks to Judi’s coaching.  He was successful and offered a place at Imperial. I highly recommend Judi as a coach for students who need to interview for a competitive place at University. »

Angelo State University: A Best 376 College 

ASU Receives National Recognition from The Princeton Review 

For the third consecutive year, Angelo State University has been listed by The Princeton Review as one of the country’s best institutions for undergraduate education, an honor that goes to only about 15 percent of the nation’s more than 2,500 four-year colleges.

The education services company features Angelo State in the 2012 edition of its annual college guide, “The Best 376 Colleges,” released August 2nd by Random House.

The annual book is The Princeton Review’s flagship college guide, and includes detailed college profiles and lists the top 20 schools in 62 categories, based on surveys of college students. Angelo State made two of the Top 20 lists, ranking #10 for “most conservative students” and #18 for “everybody plays intramural sports.”

Robert Franek, author of “The Best 376 Colleges” and The Princeton Review’s senior vice president and publisher, said, “We commend Angelo State University for its outstanding academics, which is the primary criteria for our selection of schools for the book. Our choices are based on institutional data we collect about schools, our visits to schools over the years, feedback we gather from students attending the schools, and the opinions of our staff and our 28-member National College Counselor Advisory Board. We also work to keep a wide representation of colleges in the book by region, size, selectivity and character.”

ASU President Joseph C. Rallo said, “Once again this honor is a national acknowledgement of the hard work of our students and the ongoing commitment of our faculty and staff to providing a quality academic and co-curricular experience for all who choose to continue their education at Angelo State. Recognition such as this helps us enhance our academic reputation and move toward our enrollment goals.”
