It is unquestionable: the educational sector has been extremely affected by the events that the Covid-19 pandemic has brought along. While the world of academia is reimagining its scenario in view of the next academic season, an increasing amount of academic and professional opportunities arise and become accessible for students from their homes. Omni Admissions is active in this re-elaboration process and tells how they will assist students during an exceptionally unusual summer, by proposing a wide range of online courses and activities. Among these, we find online tutoring services, pre-IB and academic writing online courses.

Just like everyone, students had to change their habits due to the coronavirus.

US Universities going test optional in response to covid-19

07 April 2020

US universities have not remained indifferent to the cancellation of SAT/ACT test dates due to the covid-19 and some of them have already decided to change their entry requirements for students applying in the next rounds of admission. Tufts University, 29th in the national ranking, announced that SAT/ACT will not be a requirement for the next three admission cycles. BU, already test optional for IB students, extended this option to all students applying for 2021 entry, just like the universities of the UC System (UC Berkeley, UCLA, UC San Diego, etc) that introduced this policy for all students; in addition, the UC universities specified that all the classes that at year-end will not have a grade but a pass/no pass will not affect the GPA. MIT and Harvard will not require SAT Subject Tests anymore.

omniadmissions-press-study-abroad-and-covid-19-10-answers-by-omni-admissions-for-il-sole-24-ore

An unusual situation forces us to adopt extraordinary measures. It is important to know how to behave to avoid negative consequences on the several study abroad experiences of our students. Booking a return flight home, attending online lessons and taking exams online, scheduling final exams at other schools: these are some of the solutions that families and students can take to face this emergency. It remains of vital importance to follow the guidance of the Italian Government and of the countries where students are, in addition to those of the institutions that they are attending. If students decide not to return home, they should check their insurance.

In 2019 UCAS registered a record number of non-UK applicants

04 March 2020

“UCAS – 2019 International Insights” highlights that 2019 has brought along a new record of applications to UK universities from students outside the UK: 5.2% more compared to 2018. Non-EU countries have driven this growth, with an increase of 12.8% of students from China who make up 15.3% of non-UK applicants. EU students’ applications show a different trend: since the 2016 EU referendum, the number of EU applicants has constantly decreased, with a 39.3% drop this past year. EU students, however, still make up more than one third of non-UK applicants.

Students graduating from a one-year master’s degree have more chances to find a job – a report from Sole 24 Ore says.

Despite such favourable statistics, most Italian students still decide to pursue the two-year option.

Meritocracy and college counselling in USA university applications: Sette's analysis (Corriere della Sera)

19 August 2019
omniadmissions-press-meritocracy-and-college-counselling-in-usa-university-applications-sette-s-analysis-corriere-della-sera

Sette points out some critical issues affecting the American university system, focusing on “easy access” for alumni’s or big donor’s children and to the crazy cost for exclusive consulting. Many scandals took place in the past few months and prestigious colleges were not exempted. In this context, university consulting becomes even more central in the internationalization process of higher education. Since 2013, Omni Admissions has been working with professionalism and rigour. As a member of International ACAC and UCAS Registered Centre, OA bases its activity on ethical principles which are shared with both institutions.

Anna Maria Padula and Marcella Turazza give their thoughts as to why Italian universities are adopting a more American-style approach to student life in terms of a communal living environment. Due to the high number of foreign students, a multi cultural urban space proves not only to be the most logical and practical option, but also offers a more inclusive approach to student life, allowing students to focus more on their studies.

Omni Admissions on Capital 4.0: What does a ranking really say?

15 June 2018
omniadmissions-press-omni-admissions-on-capital-4-0-what-does-a-ranking-really-say

Within the cover story of the magazine “Capital 4.0” about universities that most easily guarantee a job position, Anna Maria Padula and Marcella Turazza warn about the value of rankings: it could be a helpful starting point, but it must not be the only criterion used when choosing a college. There are many variables that influence the position of an institution in a ranking, and not all of them are based on its academic value.
