Foundation Certificate progressing to Bachelor's Degree in Civil Engineering
A few years ago, I decided to take a pathway course at UWE Bristol's International College because I wanted to gain entry to an Engineering degree at UWE Bristol. I didn't meet the entry requirements to go straight into the University, so when I found the International Year One in Engineering course, I was really happy because it felt like the right choice for me. Studying this course meant that I could spend a year preparing for my degree, and then progress straight to the second year at university (provided I got the required grades). Now, I'm at UWE Bristol and really enjoying being a university student. I've had the opportunity to do a work placement, which taught me a lot about the Engineering industry, and it also helped me to decide on my aspirations. In the future, I would love to gain as much experience as possible, so that I can build up a base of knowledge, and eventually create my own company.

The classes at Kaplan were really helpful for me: the modules allow you to develop your skills so that you are much better prepared for university. I have learnt presentation skills, how to write properly and speak confidently - I think all of these things will help me in the future.
