               Leo Kang
               International Chef
               Former Westminster Kingsway College student and
               Professional Chef Leo Kang came to the College to
               study before returning to Korea to become a
               recognised chef.

I wanted to learn about different cuisines around the world and came to
study at Westminster Kingsway College as it is the most recognised
name in Hospitality training. It was my first time outside of Korea so I
was a little nervous but the College really welcomed and supported me.
I was impressed by the culinary techniques that I learnt from the chef
lecturers as they were unlike anything I had learnt before.

                   Access to Higher Education Diploma: Combined Studies
                   Sabah Aloui was really pleased to be an Access student at
                   Westminster Kingsway College. Originally from Tunisia, Sabah chose
                   the Access to Combined Studies courses as it offered her extra
                   support with her English.

                   I have learnt lots of things over the past year which will
                   help me at university. I had not studied for some time
                   but the support of the lecturers was great.

                   Sabah is now progressing to Goldsmiths College, London to study
                   International Relations and would like to set up her own multi-
                   national charity in the future.

Disclaimer
Please note: Westminster Kingsway College aims to provide the widest possible range of courses for
international students. On occasion it is necessary to withdraw or move courses owing to a variety of
unforeseen circumstances. The College cannot therefore guarantee the provision of all courses advertised
in this guide. Where a course is cancelled or amended in any way to that advertised, the College will make
every effort to transfer International students to an alternative course, should one exist that is appropriate
and available. Please note that fees may change at short notice due to circumstances beyond our control.
The fees payable are those in force at the time of enrolment, which supersede any that may previously have
been advertised.
The College would like to thank all of the current and former students and staff who appear in this
