Edexcel
British institution (A-Level)
We have full confidence in ASDAN’s educational concepts, academic value and ASDAN China’s organizational ability. We also trust that the ASDAN program will help improve the overall quality of the Chinese students and their leadership skills, helping them to stand out in their applications.

Richard Pring
Education professor in Oxford University
I recommend the admission officers at Oxford University and at other institutions of higher learning consider the ASDAN CoPE Level-3 qualification as an important standard for measuring students overall quality. CoPE Level-3 comes from the high quality of ASDAN’s educational experience accumulated over a number of years, and can provide strong evidence for the students’ ability to complete all their high education courses.

University of Warwick
Ranking 8
We recognize the value of ASDAN CoPE – Level 3 certificate; it helps students to build and develop a wide range of qualifications skills, and can be assessed in the CoPE skills module.


US, Canadian and Australian University Application

David Leonard
Ex-professor and admission officer at Columbia University, Yale University
Universities in the US are more focused on the overall quality of the applicant besides their academic performance. The 6 skills in ASDAN CoPE meet the standard for applying to US universities. Through my many years of recruiting experience, if Chinese students can achieve the CoPE certificate and perform well in the 6 skills, it will no doubt be helpful for applying to universities in the US.

Our Story

Testimonials

From

Students

 

This program gives an experience I have never had before. My English has improved a lot, as well as my communication skills. Communicating with foreigners can teach me more about their culture and helps with preparation for my future studies overseas. The team of teachers were very nice, and organized things well. This program has been very helpful for my personal growth.

 

Wang Yikai

Hangzhou Foreign Languages School

During the ASDAN program, we learnt how businesses operate, and the skills we learnt will be very useful for the future. It was helpful for the IB Students taking the IA and CAS courses.

 

Kuang Zhiwei

Beijing Huijia Private School

The ASDAN program taught me a new way of thinking, which is different from how we have learnt in school. It is a precise way of doing things – plan, do, review. And that's the core of the whole program, we all benefited from learning this process.

Jiang Songzhou

Zhenhai Cambridge International Centre

I learnt how to be brave and confident during the program. At the beginning, we couldn't express ourselves clearly on the street in Europe, but by the end, we could organize things well and express things clearly. After all the visits in Europe, I understood economics more. I learnt a lot from the visits and cultural experiences.

Lu Siyao

High School No.7 Chengdu

The Europe trip helped me a lot. During the program, I had the chance to visit an Audi factory, a Dutch flower market and so on. I learnt how to manage my time there. At the same time, I learnt more about European culture. The team teachers were really responsible, and helped us finish the portfolio perfectly.

Yang Wanjun

Nanjing Foreign Language School

ASDAN brought me an experience I have never had before. It was very helpful for me to use the logic of "plan, do, review". I became more confident after the team work in Switzerland and we kept having discussions with foreigners. I'm really thankful for ASDAN.

Liang Jiewen

Guangdong Country Garden School

The ASDAN program is very helpful for those who will go to universities overseas, not only for the 16 UCAS points, but also for cultivating different skills. For example, we completed the team work skill on the street in London. We also discovered different surprises and achievements when living independently.

Zhang Huimin

Ulink Education-Shanghai

During the program, we had the chance to get on a bus with local people, choose restaurants freely, and we could arrange a day of the trip ourselves. We felt European people's enthusiasm when we were giving out the questionnaires in the street. We also had an interview in luxury shops. The ASDAN program provided me with more knowledge of European countries, and gave me a certificate after finishing the portfolio to prove my achievements.

FAQ

1. Will participating in this program guarantee I obtain UCAS points? How can I obtain UCAS points?

The ASDAN Mini MBA program does not guarantee students will receive the CoPE qualification or 16 UCAS points. All students who participate in this program need to complete the ASDAN portfolio under their teacher's guidance in order to receive CoPE. This involves recording their academic experiences in detail. The final report will be submitted to the ASDAN headquarters in the UK. Only those who pass the review will obtain their CoPE and in turn receive 16 UCAS points. These UCAS points will be added automatically to the student’s credentials, which can prove to be an essential piece of evidence for their personal statement. For more information on the UCAS credit conversion and bonus system, please see UCAS official website:https://www.ucas.com/ucas/undergraduate/getting-started/entry-requirements/tariff/tariff-tables/1216

2. What will happen if I didn't pass in the end? Will I get corresponding points(<16)?

The result will be either pass or fail. If you pass, you will get 16 UCAS points; if you don't pass, you will not get any points. It is possible you may receive a University Award from ASDAN if you do not pass, which will prove that you attended an ASDAN international program. Your work will be checked by ASDAN UK to see if it qualifies for either award.

3. If I am a student who comes from a lower grade or lack many personal skills that the ASDAN CoPE award monitors, does it mean I will have lower chance of passing the CoPE Level-3 qualification?

CoPE requires you to develop your personal skills in 6 different aspects, it's not a competition or examination. As long as you fully participate and develop yourself in different aspects as required, you will have a fair chance of obtaining the certificate.
