来美国捡漏读名校?服务设计专业推荐

由于中美经济贸易摩擦以及美国疫情处理不当等原因的影响,同时近两年来对于中国留学生无故进行拒签,美国留学申请人数相比较以往已经出现大幅下跌。以往大家普遍认为美国院校整体申请难度是要高于英国,但是这两年情况恰恰相反,英国的院校逐渐开始提升自己的申请标准,针对中国学生增加了院校背景和GPA的硬性要求。因此如果今年你是志在申请美国,那么也许就是你捡漏上名校的最佳时机了。

今天这篇文章马克笔设计留学将会为大家详细介绍硕士阶段开设服务设计相关专业的院校,这里既有在艺术设计专业方向顶尖传统艺术类院校,也有综合排名在世界前50的综合类强校。至于具体喜欢哪所学校,还是得根据个人的情况来选择。
