A bilingual Western–style school

Jilin University – Lambton College values our students and provides a continuity of care during and after their time here. There are more people here to help you than in almost any other University in China. Aside from the university Administration, whose leaders oversee everything, and your Professors, who are dedicated to your academic success, each class has a Class Leader, who keeps you in contact with news and developments, changes and events. This person will tell you if you have to go somewhere, or what to do if you need help. The teaching assistant speaks Chinese and English, and he or she will provide you with the assistance you need to get the most of out of your classes and to complete assignments to the required standard.

When you arrive at Jilin University - Lambton College, we will help you to become familiar with your new surroundings. We will meet all freshmen and introduce them to the facilities and activities available at JULC, so that you can get around the campus comfortably and know what to do and when to do it. We will also review your first-term schedule, provide you with a student identification card, and generally ensure that you are able to begin your journey with confidence.

Since Jilin University - Lambton College is quite different from most other schools in China, we have developed an "Orientation to Jilin University - Lambton College Workshop", entitled Work Smart. This event is designed and delivered by a senior Professor, to help you to get used to the style of learning here, the expectations your Professors will have of you, and how to start thinking in a different way from what may you have been used to in a more traditional Middle School.

Now you are at University, your Grade Point Average (GPA) is the measure of success determining the value / standard of your qualification. This is even more important if you decide to continue your studies and do graduate work for a Master's degree.

Western education does not focus on your ability to remember a great deal, especially from textbooks. We will help you to become curious, and to want to know more, in a system called inquiry–based, student centered learning. In your senior years here, you will be presented with problems to solve and we will teach you how to do this using academic "tools". One of the most useful ones is Critical Thinking.

Critical Thinking is an important, learned skill. You will learn how to present an argument, do research, ask the key questions, and get sound results. You will work in teams, when solving business problems, and when using certain methods in, say, Accounting. This team work allows our students to participate in and contribute to their groups, while learning from their peers. When you take full advantage of this system, you will feel the sense of personal achievement that is the basis of a long-term successful career. Asking questions in class is a GOOD thing and an essential part of your learning strategy. If YOU ask a question, then you help your classmates too, as it is likely that they will benefit from a better understanding of the topic at hand.
