美国林肯国际大学(以下简称林肯)的发展,如同美国许多私立大学的发展历史一样,是美国林肯基督教大学在其发展的历史进程中向教育国际化开放的一个重要决策。它亦是一个得到了和林肯基督教大学同样资质的、由美国中北公共高等教育认证机构认证的、合法的教育机构。它亦是被美国移民局所批准的可以招收国际学生的大学,而且也是为中国教育部所认可的、并被列入了教育部所公布的赴美留学指南名单的美国大学。

林肯国际大学的宗旨是为学生提供高质量和高水平的教育服务,扩展学生的思维,并使他们可以在一生中成为有高等知识教育、有品格素质和智慧、及有实际拓展能力的人。林肯之一流的教师资源为学生提供了优良的学习环境,并为学生提供了培养集体精神和激发远大理想的浓厚气氛。多年以来,林肯国际大学的毕业生已经在全世界一百二十多个国家和地区服务,其中包括大学校长、教授、中学校长及教师、律师、高管人员、各社会阶层的领袖、及美国国会议员等。这一事实充分表明了林肯国际大学高水平的教育质量并不仅仅是一个承诺而已。林肯国际大学将以校园本部的全套教学系统和设施、以它散处在全美国各地的成人教育中心、以及它的网络远程教育课程等多种渠道和方式,来竭尽所能地服务世界每一个角落的人群。

2008 年, 林肯国际大学确立了新的向国际教育市场发展的策略,同时与美中民间交流协会(英文名:America China Civic Exchange/ 简称:ACCE) 结成了合作伙伴关系,以便有效地与中国的国际教育资源对接。双方合作并在林肯国际大学架构中成立了林肯中国学院。林肯中国学院目前设立了以下三个项目来招收中国学员:

两年制大学专科和四年制的大学本科是为已经通过托福或雅思考试的学生,希望获得美国大学学位的学生而开设的项目。

各类培训、研讨会、青少年夏令营等:林肯国际大学为各类培训班、研讨会,及青少年夏令营提供场所、资源、及教育培训服务,以帮助各个培训项目及营会的学员们来提高专业技能和国际交流经验。

FAQs

The United States higher education system differs significantly from China’s high school education system. Education methods, education patterns, and administration are a few of these differences. College/university education in the United States emphasizes students’ critical and creative thinking, learning and teaching methods, and exam patterns. These are vastly different from a Chinese college education. Taking a college preparatory course in the English language will help students succeed and easily transition to degree programs at United States colleges and universities.

Benefits for students applying to study in the English Language Academy:

  • The program is focused on developing essential English skills for success on the Michigan English Language Assessment Battery (MELAB) test.
  • Emphasis will be given to speaking, listening, grammar, writing, and reading.
  • Students will be immersed in American culture which will assist in adapting to academic and daily life.

  • Students may be able to take an undergraduate course at LCU on non-credit basis.
