Progressed from a Foundation Certificate to a bachelor's degree at Bournemouth University

My course at the College really prepared me for university. The education system in the UK is very different from that in my home country, and studying with Kaplan was like an introduction to university, helping me with things such as referencing and other academic skills.

Progressed from an International Year One to a bachelor's degree at Bournemouth University

I would definitely recommend BU International College. The admissions process is easy, and the teachers are always helpful. It’s been good to study with students from different countries, and interesting to find out about other cultures. I worked hard in classes, and am really proud of what I have accomplished!
