Story

When I was in High school I studied Commerce subjects, but once I graduated I realised I wanted to change my ambition and study Speech Pathology. Because I hadn’t studied the required subjects at school I decided to study a foundation program. After researching and considering my options, I chose to study IES Foundation Year as the stepping-stone for my future career because of its excellent academic atmosphere and entry to UQ.

The thing I enjoyed most about IES Foundation Year was the valuable opportunity to interact with different students from a range of countries. The teachers were also very helpful and kind in classes and after school.

Apart from giving me the knowledge and skills I need to go and study at university, one of the benefits of the program is that it helps you to adapt to Australia and Brisbane, both in terms of the education system and environment. It is also a good opportunity for me to practice my English in both oral and written form and make friends form around the world.

Life is like a journey, step out of your comfort zone and realise your dreams by studying abroad. IES Foundation Year is your first choice to start your future career.
