alisa turcanuWhen Alisa Turcanu arrived in Northampton from Moldova two years ago, the thought of studying at University would have been a distant dream.

The language barrier and an unfamiliar education system meant she faced an uphill battle but it is a battle she has overcome, thanks to a combination of hard work and expert teaching at Northampton College.

She has achieved a grade B in her GCSE Maths and a C in English, alongside a Level 3 BTEC in Business, to allow her to continue her studies with a degree in International Business at university.

Alisa said: “The teachers have been fantastic. I have got on really well with them; they were good fun, approachable and made learning enjoyable. They explained things really well and that meant I was able to understand everything and get the grades I needed.

“Coming over to England was very strange at first but I quickly made lots of friends and that was a real help. I had people around me showing me how things worked in England and I really appreciated that.

“I have constantly been studying since I arrived so it is nice that the hard work is paying off and now I can look forward to university.”
