Why did you choose to study with NCUK?

Thanks to this qualification, I was able to improve my academic writing and presentation skills. Moreover, I made some great friends with whom I still keep in touch. The International Foundation Year also helped me to develop proper studying habits that have been very useful for me throughout my university life. The techniques I learned have enabled me to better manage my time, stay organized, and approach my studies in a more structured and effective way.
What are your goals for the future?
I plan to graduate with a first-class degree and work for a top technology company upon graduation.
Do you have any advice for future NCUK students?

As you embark on your NCUK journey, it’s important to remember that making friends and building relationships is just as important as studying hard. Don’t be afraid to approach your teachers or peers with questions or concerns – they are there to help you succeed. In addition to seeking guidance, practicing sample exam questions can greatly enhance your understanding of the material and prepare you for success. Embrace all that your NCUK experience has to offer by getting involved in extracurricular activities, attending social events, and actively participating in group discussions. Not only will this enrich your academic experience, but it can also lead to lifelong friendships and valuable connections
