Edexcel

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 qualification as an important standard for measuring students overall quality. ASDAN certificates come 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 certificate; it helps students to build and develop a wide range of qualifications skills, and can be assessed in the AoPE skills module.

We encourage all pre-university applicants to participate in activities to develop their abilities. We welcome students with ASDAN AoPE - Level3 certificate to apply for the University of Exeter.


Apply for US University

Students will give universities an indication of the leadership and quality skills

David Leonard

Ex-professor and admission officer in Columbia University, Yale University

Universities in the US are more focused on the overall quality of the applicant besides their academic performance. The skills in ASDAN AoPE meet the standard for applying to US universities. Through my many years of recruiting experience, if Chinese students can achieve the AoPE certificate and perform well in the skills, it will no doubt be helpful for applying to universities in the US.

FAQ

1、What is the biggest difference between the ASDAN MUN program and other general MUN programs?

The ASDAN MUN program offers students the opportunity to participate in the most popular high school leadership development activity from the United States. Meanwhile, the biggest advantage of the ASDAN MUN program is the training system and program design, which is done in accordance with ASDAN’s AoPE standard. All students who participate in this program will gain not only an MUN Participation certificate but will also have the opportunity to gain an AoPE Level-3 certificate approved by the UK Department of Education, along with 8 UCAS points which help when applying for UK Universities and offer an important competitive advantage for applying to US universities. Therefore, the ASDAN MUN Program has higher added value than other general MUN programs.

2、The AoPE Level-3 certificate and its accompanying 8 UCAS points will help when applying for UK Universities, does it also help when applying for US Universities as well?

Although the 8 UCAS (University Colleges Admissions Service) points obtained do not apply to US University, having the AoPE Level-3 certificate (which is approved by the UK Department of Education) and an ASDAN portfolio which meets the academic standard of US universities will give universities an indication of the leadership and quality skills of Chinese students. Students who obtain the AoPE certificate will have a more competitive advantage under the same conditions of academic performance. Therefore, this program is most certainly helpful for applying US University.

3、Will participating in this program mean I will most definitely obtain UCAS points? How can I obtain the UCAS points?

The answer is No. All students who participate in this program need to complete the ASDAN portfolio under their teacher's guidance. This involves recording their academic experiences in detail. The final report will be submitted to the ASDAN headquarters in the UK. Only those students who pass the review will obtain their AoPE certificate and UCAS points. 8 UCAS points will be added automatically to the student’s credentials, which can prove to be one of the most useful evidences for their personal statement.
