PDVL Overseas Ltd – Taiwan
PDVL Overseas Advisory was established in Malaysia in 2007, and has been in close partnership with City College Plymouth for a long time. Our mission is to help Asian students study abroad in the UK, and to improve their English language proficiency, global insights and international experiences. Over the past 10 years, with the intention to reach out to more Asian students, PDVL has also set up several branches in Indonesia, Thailand and China.
PDVL has established a new branch in Taipei, Taiwan in 2018 to provide Taiwanese students with more opportunities to gain access to British higher education. We intend to expose Taiwanese students to the UK education system in a more cost- and time-effective manner.
To achieve our mission, we have been engaging directly with various high schools and Government Education Bureaus for various education projects and initiatives. Below is the list of projects that are currently being coordinated:
PDVL威能國際留學有限公司於2007年在馬來西亞成立，長期與普利茅斯城市學院合作。 我們旨在幫助亞洲學生在英國留學，提高他們的英語能力、全球視野和經驗。 過去10年來，為了服務越來越多的亞洲學生，因此我們在亞洲設立了數個據點，如印尼、泰國和中國。
有鑑於此，我們亦於2018年在台灣台北設立了新據點，幫助台灣學生接觸英國高等教育。 我們希望能在台灣學生和英國教育系統之間架起一座透明的橋樑，既節省他們的時間，也減少不必要的成本。 因此，我們一直在與高中和教育局合作進行各種項目。 下面是各個課程/計劃介紹。
The Prince Dual Qualification Programme
Students who joint this programme will study in the UK for 5 months. Upon the completion of this course, students will then transfer back to Taiwan to complete the rest of their high school education. The credits that students will earn during the Prince Dual Qualification Programme will be transferred directly when they transition back to their Taiwanese high schools.
This means that students do not need to retake subjects that they have missed.
Through this course, students will be awarded a Foundation Certificate from City College Plymouth, and graduate with a high school Diploma at the same time. This dual qualification system is time-saving and cost-effective for students.
Therefore, Taiwanese students will not need to study an additional Foundation course after graduating. In addition, it allows them to progress directly to a Bachelor’s degree programmes the UK.
International Preparation Course in Business (IPCB)
This programme is established in many Taiwanese high schools with the intention to give students access to the British education system and its resources while they are still studying in Taiwan. It also provides students with more study options.
This course educates students on basic Business knowledge and improves their English skills based on the UK’s national syllabus. The skills gained will give students a competitive edge when they progress to a university programme.
The IPCB not only awards students with an NQF Level 3 Foundation Certificate, but it also allows them to progress to the Premier International Year 1 programme at City College Plymouth.
These are the high schools that have implemented the IPCB as part of their school programme.
