Meet Kassymova Kamshat from Kazakhstan who:
- studied on the International Year One in Business Management with INTO Manchester
- graduated with a 2:1 in Business Management from The University Of Sheffield
- is now Marketing Manager at Orkeniet Construction, Almaty, Kazakhstan
What did INTO teach you to prepare you for university and beyond?
First of all, the teachers at INTO Manchester taught me to always ask questions if I had them. Do not be shy; the teachers are there to help and if you do not understand something, just raise your hand and ask. Do not wait until the exams.
I also loved the Leadership course, it helped me to develop my leadership and communication skills through interactive games.
How did INTO help you get to where you are now?
The International Year One course is a real savior, as it helps you to get into a leading UK university in a short period of time.
I graduated from an excellent university with good grades, worked as an intern in London during summer holidays and am now working for an awesome company in Kazakhstan.
How did INTO Manchester give you an advantage over other international students at university?
I had an advantage over other international students at university mainly because I had studied in two different cities; Manchester and Sheffield and therefore got to know more people.
Are you proud of what you have achieved?
I am proud of what I have achieved now: I have a job that I love and had the best time at INTO Manchester and the University of Sheffield. I am moving towards my goals slow but steady.
