A testimonial from former student Carolin Schlüter
After graduating from high school in Germany in 2016, I did not know exactly what I wanted to study. In order to make good use of the time after my Abitur (A-level), I decided to improve my English by spending some time abroad in South Africa. Since I had already traveled to South Africa several times with my family and friends of our family live in George, I became familiar with Rundle College. The internationally recognized Cambridge school system convinced me to spend my year abroad at Rundle College and KeNako Golf and Sports Academy.
During my school year in South Africa, I attended various courses and took several AS and A-level exams, which was very challenging for me as a foreigner. In total, I spent almost a year in South Africa. During this time, I also did an internship with an architect firm in George, which showed me that I could pursue a professional future in the field.
Back in Germany, I then began a Bachelor's Degree in Industrial Engineering for Construction and Real Estate near Hamburg. My studies consisted of a practical and theoretical part. I completed the theoretical part in Hamburg and the practical part in Berlin, where I worked as a Project Manager for a company specializing in tenant fit-outs for office buildings. Since there were also many projects with international customers such as Apple or TheOfficeGroup, I had an advantage with my year abroad and was able to manage the project in English without any problems.
Especially with my master studies in the field of Resource Efficiency in Architecture and Planning, which I started in October this year in Hamburg, I realized again how valuable my year abroad and the time at Rundle College and KeNako Academy was, not only for me personally, but especially for my education. Again, my AS and A-level exams gave me great advantages over other applicants for the course. As this is an international course with students from all over the world and is taught exclusively in English, there was a high demand for English language skills. Because the Cambridge system is also highly regarded in Germany, I did not need to take any further tests for the application process and only had to submit my Cambridge certificates from South Africa.
I would like to thank Dr. Colesky and the entire Rundle College for this valuable and exciting year abroad and for the fact that this time has contributed to a large extent to my academic success.
