Studying with Kaplan is a journey. Not only do students get to travel to different parts of the world, taking in new experiences and ideas; their journey is also educational.

But there is no such thing as a “typical journey” with Kaplan – everyone’s experience is unique. This is reflected in our choice of covers for our all-new worldwide brochure – we’ve featured 6 different students, each with their own story to tell.

We’re proud that these students are introducing our worldwide brochure, which brings together information about our full range of offers. No matter where you’re from, this brochure could be the gateway to your very own journey with Kaplan.

Costa - Bournemouth University International College


"I consider the UK to be my home now; I've made many friends. It's been a life-changing experience."

He wanted to study Business, believing that this would have a positive impact on his career aspirations.

Jitimiebi's journey

Jitimiebi - Nottingham Trent International College


"Living in the UK has been an adventure; it was a beautiful one, and I would love to do it again."

After originally studying Political Science at Niger Delta University, Jitimiebi saw an opportunity to chase her dream – studying Law – in the UK.

German's journey

German - Kaplan International College London


"As part of my degree, I've been able to do a work placement; for me that was really important."

German, originally from Medellín in Colombia, has always been interested in how things work. This naturally led to a enthusiasm for technology and engineering, something he decided to pursue at a university abroad. He settled on the UK, partly because of its academic reputation, and partly because of its many "beautiful destinations" and proximity to other European countries.

German enjoyed his time in London, describing it as "the most amazing city in the world", and noting its exciting blend of history and modernism.
