Meet Jing Ting Khau from Malaysia who:

  • 2012 - completed the International Year One programme.
  • 2012 - progressed to BSc (Hons) Accounting and Finance at Manchester Metropolitan University.
  • 2014 - graduated with First Class Honours.
  • 2014 - is now employed as an Auditor with KPMG in Malaysia.

Why did you choose to study in the UK?

The education available here is of high quality. There are definitely some differences between studying in the UK and in Malaysia. Additionally, I wanted to strengthen my English language skills and understand the difference between the cultures of the UK and Malaysia more. I had heard from my friends that Manchester was one of the biggest cities in the UK and that it was a student focused city.

What are you thoughts about Manchester now you have lived here for a while?

Manchester was once an industrial place and you can still see some of the old structures and buildings as you walk around. You’re visiting history whilst you study which is exciting, it’s very rare to see buildings built with bricks in Malaysia.

Why did you choose the International Year One in Business?

I want to be a businesswoman in the future. This course gives you a quick route and a sturdy foundation to be able to do this.

Have you acquired any important skills?

Since studying in the UK, my writing skills have improved immensely. This skill will be useful to me when I’m at University and in my future career. Furthermore, my speaking skills have developed and I have learnt to speak English fluently. English for Academic Purposes (EAP) was very helpful overall. I learnt Writing, Speaking, Listening and Presentation skills. I was required to present my assignment to my peers, which helped me to build my confidence in public speaking.

What were your teachers like?

The teachers in the UK are different from the teachers in Malaysia. They are more efficient and they encourage students to email them when they have a question about homework. They also respond very quickly! This is what I like about them.

What do you do in your spare time in Manchester that is different to home?

I have chosen to go to other parts of the UK and Europe. The UK and Manchester are very convenient, traveling to other places is not very difficult or expensive when compared to Malaysia. I have gained more of an understanding of different cultures. This knowledge is something that I could never have learnt through books alone.

Do you have any advice for future students?

Life here might be different when compared with your own country, but enjoy the opportunity to experience the UK. They have four seasons unlike in Malaysia where it feels like summer time the whole year. Enjoy the climate here, in the winter my friends and I built a snowman, it was a lot of fun!
