“I am a business and finance educated student but wanted to study civil engineering. I failed in my first-year foundation programme in INTO Manchester, because I have never studied physics before. At DIFC have have physics and chemistry classes and this really helped in the subjects I was less experienced in. In chemistry I was struggling to get a C, I ended up with an A, in physics i thought my result would be around B or A, Igot an A star.”

“During the past 9 months I have spent in DIFC, I fully enjoyed studying in an international environment which helped me to understand others with different backgrounds. Not only did DIFC teach me to develop academic skills, but also did it help me be aware of my ability and more confident with myself. In particular, having a personal tutor was absolutely helpful for me to overcome any difficulties or distractions you might have during the study.”
