Prior to the IFP, I grew up achieving grades that were slightly above average in school. I did not stand out much and I certainly did not do as well as I could have. Upon joining the International Foundation Program, I was given the correct stepping stones by my lecturers and tutors to improve myself, not only academically but also in other aspects such as social skills and video editing to name a few. As a student of the IFP, my friends and I were given many opportunities to improve ourselves. The encouragement given by our tutors was what kept me going to get to where I am now. The learning experience felt more like a hobby than a chore, and I can gladly say that I enjoyed every second of it.
