STUDENT	PROFILE
NAEF	ALSAHLY




From:	Riyadh,	Saudi	Arabia
Studied:	International	Foundation	
Programme	Engineering	pathway
Now	studying:	BSc	Electronic	&	
Electrical	Engineering

I	am	really	grateful	for	the	support		
I	got	with	my	studies	and	also		
from	the	welfare	support	team	at	
FoundationCampus	during	the	
course,	which	helped	me	with	a	visa	
issue	with	UKBA	and	with	my	Council	
tax.	I	enjoy	living	in	Coventry	as	it’s	a	
quiet	city	and	it	is	easy	to	visit	my	
friends	in	London,	Birmingham	and	
Manchester	at		
the	weekends.

I	think	the	academic	content	of	the	
International	Foundation	Programme	
really	helped	me	prepare	well	for	my	
degree.	In	particular	the	Maths	and	
Physics	classes	were	good	
preparation,	and	I	was	also	able	to	
develop	my	listening	and	speaking	
skills	in	the	Academic	English	classes.	
On	completion	of	my	undergraduate	
degree	at	Coventry	University,	I	aim	to	
progress	on	to	do	my	Master’s	in	
Biomedical	Engineering	at	the	nearby	
University	of	Warwick.

PEDRO	MONTEIRO




From:	Luanda,	Angola
Studying:	IFP	Business	pathway
Progressing	to:	BA	Business	
Management	

I’m	so	glad	to	be	studying	the	
Foundation	course	as	I	have	improved	
a	lot.

I’m	living	in	university	
accommodation	in	Trinity	Point.	I	
share	a	flat	with	university	and	other	
students	from	FoundationCampus	
from	England,	Iran,	China,	Kenya	and	
Nigeria.	I	really	enjoy	living	there	and	
we	watch	premier	league	football	
together,	play	snooker,	eat	together	
and	discuss	sport,	politics	and	our	
different	cultures.

I	also	play	football	with	university	
students	from	the	Business	School	
every	week	and	use	the	university	
gym,	so	I	have	made	lots	of	friends	
from	the	university.	After	studying	my	
Business	degree	I	want	to	return	to	
Angola	to	set	up	my	own	businesses,	
amongst	which	I	hope	to	develop	my	
own	fashion	label!

From:	Hong	Kong
Studying:	International	Foundation	
Programme	Art	&	Design
Progressing	to:	An	Art	&	Design	
degree	

We	get	to	try	lots	of	different	areas	
of	Art	&	Design,	most	of	them	at	
the	University	in	the	workshops	and	
studios	of	Coventry’s	School	of	Art	&	
Design.

I	had	studied	a	Business	Foundation	
course	at	another	university	but	
soon	realised	Business	wasn’t	for	
me.	I	found	the	details	of	the	Art	
Foundation	course	on	the	internet	
and	was	attracted	by	the	chance	to	
try	lots	of	different	areas	of	Art	and	
Design	to	help	me	decide	what	area	
to	specialise	in.	On	the	Foundation	
programme	I	have	already	tried	
printmaking,	woodwork,	fashion	and	
metalwork	but	I	am	still	not	sure	
what	area	I	want	to	major	in.	I	do	
know,	though,	that	whichever	degree	
I	choose	I	am	guaranteed	a	place	
when	I	successfully	complete	this	
programme.

STUDENT	PROFILE
THI	THU	PHUONG	
LUONG	(CHILI)




From:	Hanoi,	Vietnam
Studied:	ELPP	then	Master’s	
Qualifying	Programme	in	Business,	
Finance	and	Management
Now	studying:	MSc	Finance

Before	joining	my	MSc	Finance	
degree,	I	feel	the	ELPP	and	MQP	
courses	helped	me	to	improve	my	
speaking,	vocabulary	and	confidence	
a	lot.	Each	week,	my	personal	tutor	
made	sure	I	was	making	good	
progress	and	if	I	ever	had	any	
problems	then	he	was	on	hand	to	
discuss	them	and	help	me.	

I	had	originally	thought	about	going		
to	Florida,	USA,	to	study	my	
Master’s,	after	graduating	in	
Automatic	Control	from	Hanoi	
University	of	Technology,	but	the	UK	
was	a	more	economical	and	
attractive	option	with	only	one	year	
needed	to	complete	my	postgraduate	
degree.	The	opportunity	to	do	a	
12-week	internship	as	part	of	my	
MSc	at	Coventry	instead	of	a	
dissertation	was	also	really	
appealing	and	I	think	this	will	be	very	
useful	for	me	when	I	return	to	
Vietnam	to	find	a	good	job.
