Marie chose IES Foundation Year because she needed to enhance her preparation in science subjects to study Veterinary Science at university.
In addition to her academic preparation, Marie believes IES Foundation Year provides additional benefits as a university pathway. Marie says: "It has put me in the right frame of mind to study at university. Meeting a lot of different people from different countries and cultures is very beneficial. The teachers are also very dedicated for us to succeed. I also liked the organised student events such as the trip to Sydney and sporting activities"
Marie enjoys living in Brisbane as well. She says: "Brisbane is a homely city, not too big and not too small. It's in a nice location by the river and the climate is great. There are friendly people with a relaxed and easy-going lifestyle."
