What our students say

Qian Wang

The International Foundation Programme was quite a challenging and inspiring programme. It provided me with sufficient skills and knowledge to prepare for undergraduate study including in-depth learning in subjects like social psychology, economics, mathematics and research assignments. With the help of our lovely teacher, I found my genuine interest in maths and chose to study the course BSc Actuarial Science and Mathematics at the University of Manchester. No single sentence can describe what I have learned, from all the people I met and how much I’ve changed in this year.

Juanita Barreto Monje - International Foundation Programme

“The International Foundation Programme that I took in Bournemouth helped me a lot, firstly because studying International Relations, plus Social Psychology and Economics has helped me to have a strong theoretical background. Secondly, I find that the academic system is very different from Colombia and the college was particularly helpful. This helped me not to feel behind other students, which I believe is very important, emotionally, to feel that I have the possibility to succeed as an international student in a foreign country. “
Juanita previously studied in Bogota, Colombia and spent 2015/16 at the College on the UoL IFP. She is now reading MA International Relations and Anthropology at St Andrews University in Scotland, having been awarded a partial scholarship by the University.
