Student Testimonials

Aminah Shifana Ahmed, Maldives

University of Bradford 3+0

As I moved into my final year in BSc (Hons) in Business Management, I know well that I have built the required foundation in my business career for I have gained confidence through the knowledge and experience I acquired during my group assignments. I will never forget the time when my group mates and I argued (a friendly one) with our lecturer regarding offer and acceptance (during our Business Law lectures)I am surrounded by supportive lecturers and course mates; not forgetting the management staff; all of whom have helped us tremendously to ensure that things go smoothly. I guess the management knows that we are taking a very challenging course and thus would like to reduce our tension by taking care of other worries for us!I know when I look back in future, the element that I will miss most is the study environment in RIMA College.

Manatiba Iampinyo, Thailand

Intensive English Programme

I am a degree holder in Economics and Finance from University of Thai Chamber of Commerce (local university of Thailand). However, due to the lack of English taught in my country, I decided that I needed to enhance my English skills. From my friends’ word of mouth, I decided to come to RIMA College to pursue my studies. This will enable me to progress in my career. I think RIMA is a very good college because when I came to RIMA College 6 months ago, I could not speak English, and now, here I am, being able to understand and communicate with all my friends from different countries in the college. I love everybody here in RIMA especially my lecturers because they have good methods to teach English which enable me to learn it well.
