Introduction

ASDAN Global Youth Empowerment Program aims to cultivate talents who have social responsibility, are willing to cooperate with others and not afraid of challenges, actively seek solutions, and have the spirit of research, self-learning ability, and all-round development of comprehensive quality. The program achieves its training objectives through five curriculum modules: Business Exploration, Global Citizenship, Global Citizenship, Artistic Culture, Field Research and Future Education.
Different from the traditional classroom, the program takes the world as the classroom and students as the core. Under the guidance of their tutors, the students will conduct 2-month independent research in China and 14-day in-depth research in the UK, US, five European countries or Canada. All modules are conducted in multinational enterprises, financial institutions, government departments, international organizations and famous universities through interactive workshops, expert classes, field research and other forms.
At the same time, students will have the opportunity to apply for the CoPE Level-3 certificate authorized by the British Ministry of Education with UCAS points. It is regarded as a “highly valuable international study program for overseas university applications”.

Step 6: Participate the MINI MBA Program (June-August 2019)

Participate in the Mini MBA program; students will travel around the selected country and complete the ASDAN portfolio under their ASDAN Trainer's guidance. They will submit the final report to ASDAN UK.

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.
