Learning pathway can be a long and winding road to the greatest heights of career success or personal fulfillment. It is never too early to make a career choice and plan all steps and levels of learning experience.
The first step on the path to professional specialisation is usually made at the age of 15 or 16, when a student starts to prepare for the final exams (GCSEs or A-Levels in the UK). Many students consider switching schools to get better knowledge of subjects required to enter a college or university of their choice.
English courses are recommended to all students whose native language is not English. They are compulsory, if a student plans to study abroad and gain a Bachelor’s or a Master’s degree or professional qualifications overseas. A foundation programme is offered at some colleges and at most universities that accept international students. Non-degree options include professional training which leads to a professional diploma.
