Hale Education partners with American HonorsDecember 1, 2015, 7:07 am GMT
Hale Education has partnered with American Honors to increase the number of American university applicants from the GCC by 50%.
The partnership will see Hale and American Honors advise students on their education goals, and provide step-by-step support during the application process.
Commenting on the partnership, Hale Education managing director Peter Davos said: "Traditionally, GCC high school students have faced the triple problems of preparedness, affordability, and access to top US universities, which will no longer be the case with our new initiative."
The American Honors programme – a two year selective honours programme – has successfully placed students at universities such as Stanford, Cornell, and Georgetown, and students from the GCC will now benefit from this joint initiative.
The selective programme helps students earn a bachelor's degree in four years by starting at select two-year community colleges before transferring to finish their degrees at premier institutions, which typically decreases the costs of earning a leading degree by 30%.
Once admitted to American Honors, students are assigned a transfer advisor that works with them individually throughout the two years of the programme in order to help each student achieve their transfer goals.
Honors designated classes are conducted on the campuses of eight top two-year colleges in the US and class sizes are limited to no more than 25 students. The total cost of attendance, which includes housing, is approximately US $20,000-25,000 per year depending on the campus students select.
"As a first generation college student, I believe no one should be denied the opportunity to attend their dream university in the USA; American Honors now makes this both possible and affordable.
"The program does not require SAT scores for admission, and tuition costs are less than those of American University of Sharjah or American University in Dubai. Students in American Honors who are dedicated and maintain a minimum GPA are able to leverage its prestigious four-year transfer network and also apply to institutions outside its network," Davos added.
