My name is Timothy Waive and I'm from Nigeria. I came to the University of Wolverhampton to study Biochemistry via the International Foundation Year in 2011. The International Foundation Year was recommended by the University to help the transition of International Students from the educational system to which they are normally adapted to the British educational system.
In the course of my International Foundation Year, I was taught Harvard Referencing and citation which is very important for avoiding plagiarism but was new to me. The International Foundation Year (IFY) also taught me new and improved patterns for academic writing to enable easy relay of information with high levels of vocabulary, accuracy, precision and professionalism. The lecturers of the IFY and the University of Wolverhampton were always available to render assistance where and when needed making the learning process easier. The IFY opens opportunities of friendship to students from all around the world.
During my time on the IFY course, I made friends of different nationalities who have made Wolverhampton a warmer place to be. Thanks to the education and training I received from the IFY, I graduated from the University of Wolverhampton with a BS.c. Biochemistry First Class.
In the future, I hope to be a medical doctor and have already started pursuing this dream. I have secured a place at a medical school here in the U.K. and should graduate in 2020 as a medical doctor.
