Follow Your Path, Your Way

Marelis, Panama, student at the University of Nottingham

Marelis from Panama

is following her path to a bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering at the University of Nottingham in the UK
 

Taking this pathway course really helped me to get used to university culture and the education system in the UK. It meant that when I started my degree I already knew my way around Nottingham and how things worked, so I wasn’t stressed and I could just focus on my studies! Our lecturers were so helpful and understanding of international students, and it was lovely to get to know them. I’m really happy that I came here and that I’m studying a subject I love.

Rustam Azerbaijan University of Westminster international student

Rustam from Azerbaijan (with his proud mother!)

followed his path to a bachelor's degree in Law at the University of Westminster in the UK
 

On my pathway course, I learnt about political science, sociology and history, as well as general legal practices in the UK and the European Union. All of this gave me a broad knowledge base that I went on to expand during my degree. I also improved my analytical skills, and learnt how to work in a team, communicate effectively, and carry out research. Studying abroad allowed me to experience a totally different culture, learn a new language, expand my horizons and, most importantly, broaden my professional network.

Som from South Korea

Som from South Korea

followed her path to a bachelor's degree in Management at Northeastern University in the USA
 

Thanks to Northeastern I became a globally minded person with fluent English communication skills. I use these skills every day in my job when working with colleagues from overseas and, without this learning experience, I cannot imagine how I could survive in such a competitive and fast-paced world.

Mara Colombia University of Liverpool international student

Maria from Colombia

is following her path to a bachelor's degree in Business Management at the University of Liverpool in the UK
 

My pathway course really helped me to settle down and meet friends that were in the same situation. On the academic side, my course gave me a lot of basis for my degree, and also helped me get used to the UK system. Now I'm at university, I've enjoyed getting to know a lot of international people, but also those from the UK – I really like the diverse environment. My advice would be: focus on your studies and having a good time, and take advantage of every opportunity given to you!
