Course Description

The liberal education system of the American Degree Transfer Program (ADP) supports the spirit of inquiry and fosters a culture of idea exchange by focusing on critical thinking. This falls in line with the ideal that students will reach their full potential in the midst of a diversified environment they helped create, which will open more doors to various different communities around the world.

Students enjoy a high level of flexibility in their studies, with two years of liberal arts studies before deciding on a major in specific disciplines. They are free to pick a combination of science and arts subjects, on what they prefer. They also receive personalised attention, due to small classes taught by experienced lecturers. All this ensure each student garners a well-rounded education that gives him/her the power to communicate confidently and think independently.

Contrary to its name, the programme allows students to transfer to not only American universities but also to institutions in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. Since its inception, thousands of students have transferred to more than 500 universities and colleges in the USA with the help of our supportive university placement services.
