Course prepares international students for degree study

The University of Wolverhampton’s International Academy has helped prepare students from Oman, Nigeria, Ivory Coast and South East Asia for studying at degree level on its University Preparation Course.

Ten students aged between 19 and 34 are in the process of completing their Pre-sessional University Preparation courses at the International Academy, Priorslee Hall, Telford Innovation Campus and are aiming to progress to undergraduate degrees in Business Management, Mechanical Engineering, Construction and Art.

Angela Molinari, Acting Principal of the International Academy at the University of Wolverhampton, said: “The course not only develops academic skills, strategies and language accuracy which students need to continue their educational careers but also builds confidence and improves communication skills enabling students to successfully progress to undergraduate degrees across the University."

Sonala Oyarame Emuze, from Nigeria, said: “I have enjoyed every part of the lessons and I feel that I’ve gained the motivation to read and speak clearly when engaged in a conversation or looking through a text.”

Sanga Abdul Coulibaly, from the Ivory Coast, said: “The course programmes are of quality and permit students to develop their communication skills. I have gained from the course and have increased my English level and am more confident.”

Anyone interested in studying for degree courses at the University of Wolverhampton should visit the next Open Day on Saturday 4th February 2017.
