  36. 36. London FoundationCampus Fam Trip, March 2011 Julian Halili Tirana, Albania Studying: UFP Business pathway Applying to: Royal Holloway, Warwick, Exeter, Surrey and Aston The staff and facilities at London FoundationCampus are great. The Albanian education system is much stricter, but here I can debate with my teachers and the college gives me the space to express my ideas and opinions. We have access to the huge library at Birkbeck, which is really helpful for my academic area of Economics. I know that I won’t improve myself only through reading the standard textbooks, and the resources in the library will help me to achieve a better understanding of my subject. I think London FoundationCampus will give me a springboard to the university of my choice. I am not leaving England without a master’s degree, preferably from Cambridge or Oxford, but for now, London is the place for me to be a student.
  37. 37.

  38. 38. London FoundationCampus Fam Trip, March 2011 Aleksander Terleev Novosibirsk, Russia Studied: MFP Business Progressing to: MSc Financial Engineering at Birkbeck, University of London London FoundationCampus is different to other places I have studied. You make progress throughout the course rather than just at the end. I like the study culture here and feel the course is tailored to each student’s needs. The Master’s Foundation Programme has exceeded my expectations and provides a well-structured business course. The Personal Development Programme module has also really helped me with time management and mind management, which I am sure will be really useful skills when I progress on to my Master’s at Birkbeck. I also get the chance to join lectures at the London School of Economics; there are few places in the world where students can get pure tangible treasure from bright minds but these lectures are a must for all.
  39. 39. Outstanding teaching • Well-qualified teaching staff with a wealth of international experience • Average class size of 15 means that teaching can be tailored to individual student needs • Personal tutor for every student and regular tutorial meetings to ensure successful progress
  40. 40. London FoundationCampus Fam Trip, March 2011 Seong Young An Seoul, South Korea Studying: UFP Business pathway Applying for: Accounting/Finance/Economics degrees at Queen Mary, Royal Holloway, City, Newcastle, Oxford Brookes London FoundationCampus is a great place for people to develop themselves. The teachers are friendly and very passionate about their subject, and the comfortable class sizes benefit the students as the teachers can give them individual attention. London FoundationCampus has a good relationship with its University of London college partners, which is good for me as I have applied to two of these universities. Queen Mary came here to give a talk to us, and it gave me inside information that other students will not get. I already have offers from four of the five universities I applied to, including Queen Mary!
  41. 41. Expert guidance and support • Each student on UFP and MFP courses receives one-to-one guidance with their university applications • London FoundationCampus is an approved UCAS Centre • Our specially-trained Higher Education (HE) staff are here to help to prepare you for University of London entry through: – Comprehensive skills assessment at induction – Frequent UCAS workshops, including How to Apply to the Best UK Universities and Colleges; How to write a winning Personal Statement; How to research and choose your perfect university – Presentations by faculties and admissions staff from partner universities – UCAS Surgery Drop-in sessions every lunchtime – Open Days, taster sessions and talks from our University of London partners – Interview Practice and intensive training for university admissions tests
  42. 42. London FoundationCampus Fam Trip, March 2011 Yasser Hussein Medina, Saudi Arabia Studying: UFP Engineering Applying for: BEng (Hons) Engineering at Queen Mary I’ve been at other institutions in the UK and this is the best place I’ve studied! I like that the teachers have specific subjects to teach rather than having teachers that teach a number of different subjects. I think there is a good study environment and a good mix of nationalities in the classes, which forces us to speak English and helps me to focus on my pronunciation. The Higher Education team have been more than brilliant, they helped me work through the UCAS handbook and gave me crucial feedback and good advice. I am planning to progress on to Queen Mary for my degree and I am sure the preparation and guidance I have received will prove invaluable.

Life and support outside the classroom • a comprehensive induction programme to help students settle into London life • help to open a bank account, get an Oyster card (essential for travelling around the capital on buses and the Underground, and register with the police if needed • Student Ambassadors also help new students settle in to new life at London FoundationCampus • our team can also give you advice on transferring from another institution in the UK and help in changing the student visa if required • Students gain confidence in using English by studying, living and socialising with students from a truly diverse mix of nations, with classmates from Asia, the Middle East, Africa and South America. • Enrichment programme including national holidays celebrations, cultural awareness events, charity fundraising and international food and film clubs organised by the Social Committee at London FoundationCampus
  44. 44. London FoundationCampus Fam Trip, March 2011 Olga Kurovska Kiev, Ukraine Studying: UFP Business Offers include: King’s College London and Queen Mary, University of London for Business Management I really like London. It’s such a cosmopolitan city and I want to stay here in the future. The facilities at London FoundationCampus are outstanding. We have access to the Birkbeck library, which gives me plenty of space to study as well as a place to go during my spare time. We can also use the University of London Union and their fantastic sports facilities! I have been trained as a Student Ambassador at London FoundationCampus, which involves helping new students to settle in London when they first arrive and is great experience. My teamwork skills have really improved thanks to this and through frequent group work during English and the Personal Development Planning classes.
  45. 45. Accommodation
  46. 46. London FoundationCampus Fam Trip, March 2011 Jingcheng (Charimy) Zhang Shanghai, China Studying: ELPP then UFP Media/Humanities pathway Progressing to: BA Media at Goldsmiths, University of London My English level has really improved since I started studying at London FoundationCampus. The teachers are friendly and the group work we do means we get lots of opportunities to communicate in lessons. After class, London FoundationCampus organises lots of social activities such as bowling and historical trails and I am able to make friends with students from many different countries. I have also made friends in my halls of residence at Woodlands Court. My flatmates are from Poland and the UK and we cook and talk together so I get to practice my English outside the classroom as well. I hope that with a better level of English I can progress on to Goldsmiths to study Media.
