Rachele Acquah Brew – BSc (Hons) Medical Science with a Foundation Year

“Foundation is very good. I think it’s a very good idea because it prepares you a lot for the actual degree that you want to study. I always say it’s a very good option to come to the UK to study because you have a lot of opportunities here. My time at ARU College so far has been fun, hardworking, and very interesting. After graduation, I plan to go for my master’s degree and eventually become a Physician Assistant. My advice for international students is to come to ARU College, you will have the best time!”
