I studied the Foundation Certificate in Business, Law and Finance, and now I’m studying at Bournemouth University; I just finished my second year in Business Studies. My time at Kaplan absolutely prepared me for university. When I first came, I didn’t know how university works in the UK and the time I spent studying with Kaplan helped me to prepare from where I was then to what I am now. It has really helped me to achieve a lot.

The course at Bournemouth University International College really prepared me for university. The education system in Indonesia is completely different and studying with Kaplan was like an introduction to university, helping me with academic skills like referencing and how to write an essay. I chose Bournemouth because it is one of the best schools for media and it’s also on the south coast by the beach — the weather in Bournemouth is great!

"My first degree was in education so I feel qualified to say that the staff at Kaplan are really good and very professional. There are quite a few teachers that go the extra mile. I’m the only student in my group and I can meet my teacher any time I need to. I’m very satisfied because I can get help at any time."
