Why did you choose to study with NCUK?

I chose to study the International Foundation Year qualification with NCUK because I wanted to be able to start university without having to do the full 2 year A level program. I’d heard about NCUK and how they facilitate being able to progress to university with a combination of your IGCSE and the foundation year grades, so I took an interest in their services and followed up to get registered as a student.

How has your NCUK experience helped you to get to where you are today?

NCUK made my dream of progressing to a world class university abroad possible. The International Foundation Year at NCUK prepared me for the hurdles that university come with, by showing me how to properly navigate my way through them all. Now as a university student, looking back, I’m grateful for having such an opportunity since the program taught me how meet submission deadlines with ease, how to write well articulated essays, how to sail through university easily and much more.

What are your goals for the future?

I look forward to becoming a very successful Lawyer who goes on to challenge the odds by venturing both into the entertainment space and political hemisphere. I’d like to own a record label and an entertainment distribution company which provides creatives in the entertainment space with a platform to showcase their talents to the world while having a firm support system which legally represents them like no other. I’d like to later on in life venture into the political space by climbing up the ranks to represent my home country Ghana as President.

Do you have any advice for future NCUK students?

I believe anything is possible even in as much as it may seem farfetched. As long as you set your eyes out to accomplish something, all you need to do is to stay focused on it and you can surely succeed at it. Take your course work very serious and make sure you submit it on time, ensure that it is done properly and if you keep to that I’m sure you can pass your final exam exceedingly beyond expectation.
