Who Should Attend?
PCS alumni tell us, “Everyone needs PCS!” Students from around the world with a wide range of English skills have found PCS to be very valuable in getting a jump on the year ahead and in helping them prepare for the intense pace of studies at the Harvard Chan School. Those who have never attended university in the U.S. or lived or worked in an English-speaking environment may find the program particularly useful.
The program begins on Sunday, August 16. Classes meet most days for approximately seven hours. The program ends on Saturday, August 22, coordinating with the start of orientation and registration.
