Lau­reen came to the UK with her hus­band in 2005, set­tling here with her two chil­dren who are now aged 15 and sev­en. With a bou­tique cloth­ing shop back at home in Malawi, Lau­reen want­ed to use her time over­seas pro­duc­tive­ly to gain some qual­i­fi­ca­tions to enhance her business.

Study­ing along­side her busy fam­i­ly life and work­ing as a bank admin­is­tra­tor, Lau­reen worked hard to grad­u­ate with a BA (Hons) degree in Busi­ness Stud­ies at the Col­lege this win­ter, award­ed by Not­ting­ham Trent Uni­ver­si­ty, where she now plans to progress to a Mas­ters in Finance.

Com­ing to the UK and grad­u­at­ing feels like such a huge achieve­ment. I nev­er imag­ined I’d be at the point I am now. This course has giv­en me so much more self-belief and dri­ve. I hope my chil­dren will see this and be inspired. 

 — Lau­reen
