NT is participating in a student ex-
change program with the University
College of Swansea, Wales, and is
developing a student exchange program
with the University of Surrey, England.
Recently, four NT students exchanged
with three students from the University
of Swansea and one student from the
University of Surrey.
The agreement between NT and
Swansea allows a specific number of
students to be exchanged each academic
year, said Paul Hebda, NT coordinator
for studies abroad. He said plans are
carefully made so none of the students
will lose any credit hours.
“We work with the students and the
academic people so no student loses
credit hours because of the exchange.
Each student registers at their prospective
university, and a scheme is developed
to correspond courses,” Hebda said.
To be an exchange student, one must
have a minimum 3.0 grade average; be
a junior, senior or a graduate student;
have three faculty letters of recom-
mendation and an official transcript; and
write a short essay.
“The last stage for the final applicants
is an interview with the NT academic
year exchange selection committee,”
The exchange students at NT are
Steve Holohan, Lynnette Rose and Helen
Astell of the University of Swansea; and
Caroline Bird of the University of Surrey,
England. The students arrived at NT
“The best aspect of the program is
total immersion in an environment for
an extended period of time, allowing
the students to experience a new culture
and a totally different education system.
All of this brings a whole new dimension
to the university,” Hebda said.
The academic school year at the
universities in Swansea and Surrey lasts
three terms, and a typical degree takes
three years to obtain.
“We do not really have a grade point
average. We have a pass-fail system,”
Holohan said, “In Britain, oi ly 3
percent of the population goes to a
university, and most universities are
smaller. Swansea, one of the largest
universities in the area, has an enrol-
lment of 4,000 students.”
Bird said, “There are so many facil-
ities here, but the departments are so
big you get lost.”
Hebda said, “It takes a period of time
to acclimate themselves. The first semes-
ter is getting involved and the second
semester is experiencing the new environ-
"NT got involved with a summer
exchange program for students five years
ago. It lasted five to 10 weeks and was
completely controlled by NT,” Hebda
“We have a small scholarship for the
overseas program called Tetra Pak. The
students selected can fill out an ap-
plication for this scholarship.”
Practicums give seniors
chances for experience
By KIMBERLY HANSEN
Counselor education seniors, who
begin their practicum placements this
spring, learn from the day-by-day ex-
posure and experience, said Dr. Doug
Norton of the counselor education
“Students benefit from participating
in the practicum because they get to
see what it looks like on a day-to-day
basis. They experience the fun things
like working with people and some of
the not-so-fun tilings like paperwork and
filing,” Norton said.
To qualify for the practicum, students
must complete required counseling
coursework and have a minimum grade
point average of 2.75.
Students will be required to work 15
hours a week or a total of 225 hours
during the semester. Supervision is
provided by both the employer and
faculty superviser. The practicum grade
is determined by the faculty superviser.
