Tausif from BangladeshProgressed from a Foundation Certificate to a Banking and Finance degree at Nottingham Trent University (UK)
Studying at the International College before my degree was extremely beneficial. My pathway course developed my critical thinking, exam technique, presentation skills and many other areas. My academic and language skills improved so much, as did my confidence. With my degree, I got a job at Toshiba as a Senior Corporate Marketing Executive, where I develop campaigns to promote the company's products, services and solutions. I love learning about new innovations!
Vaibhav from IndiaProgressed from the Global Pathways program to a computing degree at Pace University in New York, where he also won an alumni achievement award
When I first arrived in the USA, I was nervous. I was new to the country and to New York City. But when I started at Pace University, it felt like this was where I was meant to be. I made really good connections with my professors and classmates, and I even found a few professional mentors. By getting to know people at Pace, you can learn a lot – there are so many brilliant minds there.
Steven from EgyptProgressed with a scholarship from a Foundation Certificate to an Engineering degree at the University of Brighton (UK), and also won a Student Employee Award
The staff at the International College were so friendly and helpful. There was always someone available to help with any problems or to give me advice about my studies, and my degree preparation course helped me to develop my time-management and academic skills. I now work as a Junior Developer at a software company, and I'm so happy to win this Student Employee award, as it will be a great addition to my CV.
