News: Inter­na­tion­al Stu­dent Success

Please note: This news story may contain information that is no longer current or up to date.

Central College Nottingham recently hosted a special awards ceremony to celebrate the achievements of more than 125 of its international students. Students and staff joined together to attend the annual International Awards and Summer Ball at Nottingham’s 4-star Park Plaza hotel on 28 June.

Stu­dents from Inter­na­tion­al Foun­da­tion cours­es in Account­ing, Archi­tec­ture, Busi­ness, Eco­nom­ics & Man­age­ment, Engi­neer­ing and Sci­ence all received an award for suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of their course. The num­ber of stu­dents achiev­ing a Dis­tinc­tion grade this year at Cen­tral was once again very high, with top grades of up to 99% going to stu­dents from Viet­nam and China.

The evening was also a chance for the stu­dents to have fun and relax, with a fun pho­to booth and a roulette wheel with plen­ty of (pre­tend) mon­ey to play with as well as a disco.

The Inter­na­tion­al Foun­da­tion pro­gramme allows stu­dents to qual­i­fy for uni­ver­si­ty study in the UK. A good num­ber of Central’s IF stu­dents will progress to the Uni­ver­si­ty of Not­ting­ham to study bachelor’s degrees, with oth­ers choos­ing Bath, Man­ches­ter, Leeds, Bris­tol, York, Read­ing and Edinburgh.

We are so proud of all our hard-work­ing Inter­na­tion­al Foun­da­tion stu­dents. The vast major­i­ty of them are pro­gress­ing to UK uni­ver­si­ties now, so it was great to recog­nise and reward all their hard work before they leave us. 

Shaf Hus­sain — Head of International

One of the stu­dents wrote this state­ment to his eco­nom­ics teacher: I got a real­ly amaz­ing eco­nom­ics result this year and I real­ly want to say thank you to you. Thank you for your help when I have had ques­tions and thank you for your patience. I feel very lucky to have you as my eco­nom­ics teacher and I real­ly learned much knowl­edge that I had­n’t known in Chi­na. I think to some extent you real­ly have changed me a lot. Because of your teach­ing and your ways of teach­ing, I grad­u­al­ly realised my per­son­al val­ue (I was a lit­tle self- abased before) and became more and more confident. 

There is no doubt that I grew up a lot. What’s more, you sparked my inter­est in eco­nom­ics, which is absolute­ly a beau­ti­ful and use­ful sub­ject. Any­way, I will always remem­ber you and if I come back to Not­ting­ham, I will vis­it you. We will keep in touch.”
