Rebecca Smith, an admissions advisor for National University in San Diego, gave a presentation for the Academic Year Lecture Series on March 17, 2011. Rebecca told EC San Diego English school students all about National University, including entrance requirements, degrees and programs offered, locations, facilities and costs. She also explained National University’s intense one-course-per-month study plan which helps students earn a degree or certificate in the shortest time possible. Some of the students who attended the presentation might be interested in transferring to National University after they finish at EC San Diego. Other students, who might not be interested in National University, nonetheless learned about higher education in America and had a chance to practice listening to a professional lecture, taking notes and writing a summary of what they learned.
