Yasmin Ali (47) from Larbert meant business when she studied at Forth Valley College for her and it was the stepping stone for her to complete a degree at university.
She completed her HND IT & Administration at the College before progressing on to Glasgow Caledonian University to study for a BA (Hons) Management, Technology & Enterprise.
Yasmin, who has just finished university and is currently looking for a new role to launch her career, said: “I am a mature student with two children and quite simply I chose Forth Valley College as it was the most convenient choice.
“I enjoyed my time at FVC and most lecturers are hardworking and do a fantastic job. The College allowed me to gain the qualifications to go to university, so it was a valuable stepping stone for me. It allowed me to become a direct entry student to Glasgow Caledonian University and it gave me the skills and confidence to forge ahead. I would definitely recommend the College to other people interested in the industry I am in.
“The best bit for me was becoming proficient in the use of Microsoft Office, where before I was always wary and scared of computers. I also made new friends which was great.”
Summing up her FVC experience in three words Yasmin, said: “Changed my life” and in four… “Stepping stone to success.”
