Studying Level 3 Technical Certificate in Agriculture
Dominic had the full support of Cambria’s International team and was made to feel welcome before even arriving on UK shores.The team helped him through the entire process, from initial interest, application and confirmation, to signing-up for the course and successfully receiving a Visa.
Dominic stated: “When I started looking at what do after my IGCSEs (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) last year, given my love of farming and agriculture I thought what better place to study than the UK?
“Coleg Cambria immediately sprang to mine and it was a good decision; I’m really enjoying the modules and the opportunity to get outside and do everything from working with animals and machinery to dairy, maintenance, health and general duties.
“The farming industry in the UK is also nothing like the one back home, so I really feel I am in the best possible place to learn more about agriculture and prepare myself for a career.
“I wanted to learn with the very best and I’m doing that here at Coleg Cambria Llysfasi.”
Dominic praised the college for its pastoral care and academic support; he has dyslexia, which can be a barrier to progress, but has again been helped by Cambria’s Study Skills team.
Dominc would like to pursue his career in the sector, either in the UK or back home in Africa once he has finished his qualification.
Studied A Level Sociology, Maths Statistics, Government and Politics and ESOL
“During my studies I have been able to expand my social network by talking to my classmates. The area surrounding the College and Wales is beautiful and the tranquility has allowed me to de-stress during my studies.
“By studying at Cambria I have become more confident using my English language skills, and to progress to writing in English at an academic level.”
