From Seeking Asylum to Studying at University – Peterborough College Adult Student Celebrates Continuous Success in the UK
Peterborough College, part of Inspire Education Group, are proud to recognise the progress of adult learner, Mohammed Naeem Gulzad, who was recently featured in the Cambridge Refugee Resettlement Campaign (CRRC) Newsletter. CRRC is a registered charity that supports the resettlement of refugees in the Cambridge area.
Mohammad has been through an inspiring journey, previously working as an interpreter for the British Army in Afghanistan. Since seeking asylum in Britain, he has gained special residency status and is now studying an Access to Higher Education course with a Diploma in Business. After receiving four university offers in January, Mohammed has successfully progressed into university and will be studying Business Management at undergraduate level in September 2023.
Mohammed, who is also a freelance interpreter, feels Peterborough College has provided him with the right tools to succeed. “I have successfully passed the functional skill English L2 exam, and I am having my functional skill Maths exam next month, which I am sure will easily pass!”
Mary Clark, who is the Curriculum Leader of Business at Peterborough College, also praised Mohammad’s success, commenting that “he has achieved an enormous amount since living in the UK”.
In their latest newsletter, CRRC have confirmed that Mohammed will continue to help with Dari/Pashto translation and will be giving beneficiary feedback during their strategic planning later this year.
