Swedish students get a taste of college business life

The College recently welcomed two Swedish students to learn about Business Administration as part of the ongoing working relationship between the College and Bromangymnasiet, a 16-19 Sixth Form further education establishment in Hudiksvall, Sweden.

Students Felizia Buyukkaya and Caroline Wallin were welcomed to the College for their two-day stay, visiting different departments in the College’s administration team to learn more about the business aspects in a secondary education environment. The two visiting students also had the opportunity to share their ideas, meet with students and immerse themselves in the College community.

The College has enjoyed links with Bromangymnasiet for twenty years, regularly exchanging staff to share expertise, best practice and staff development opportunities as well as offering students the chance to experience English culture and educative environments.

Felizia thoroughly enjoyed her visit; “In College, everyone is so friendly and they take care of you. There are a lot more resources than in Swedish schools. All the students are so polite and welcoming.”

Newton Abbot College’s Business Manager, Nick Hill, has been pleased with the visit: “This is the third occasion where we have welcomed students from Bromangymnasiet into our College community. I have been particularly impressed with Felizia and Caroline’s willingness to share their thoughts and ideas with our staff. We very much value our links with Sweden and will continue to strengthen them in the future.”
