Herba, Access to HE learner

Former Access to Higher Education learner is now working towards a degree in International Business.

Herba Rama’s journey started in 2017, when she enrolled onto an Entry Level ESOL course at Coventry College. She’s now working towards an undergraduate course in International Business at Warwick University.

Originally from Albania, Herba started on an ESOL course to improve her English and has since progressed through the Level 1 and 2 Business courses at the College. In addition, Herba completed her GCSE Maths and English alongside her Business programme.

Following the successful completion of her Level 2, Herba went on to complete an Access to Higher Education in Business, where she achieved mostly distinctions.

In September 2021, Herba started at Warwick University, studying International Business. As part of the programme she’ll have the opportunity to undertake a placement year overseas.

Helen Morten, Access to Business Tutor at Coventry College said: “Herba has a delightful attitude towards her fellow students, invariably helping out her colleagues and always being prepared to take the plunge and be one of the first to contribute to class activities. Herba’s native language is Albanian and so she has had an additional challenge with her written work to produce the quality required for academic studies.”

Helen added: “Herba is an example of a truly outstanding student. Her offer of a place at Warwick University is a remarkable achievement and is fully deserved.”
