Although it is our firm desire that students continue on to The University of Auckland (UoA), some students who successfully complete Foundation make a personal choice to go on to other tertiary institutions. Akshay Shah chose an alternative pathway for particular reasons and that has worked for him. This is his story.

Gao Ren Yu studied at ACG back in 2003. He started the year in ACG English School and moved on to ACG New Zealand International College in The University of Auckland Certificate in Foundation Studies in July 2003 and in July 2004 entered The University of Auckland to study a Bachelor of Science majoring in Molecular Biology. He later went on to undertake a Master’s Degree in Bioscience enterprise (like an MBA in Science, teaching scientists how to do business). Ren now holds Permanent Residence and is working for Phytomed Ltd as a project manager as well as being involved in the production of pharmaceutical products.

When Ren was at ACG Mrs Lilburn was his tutor and as such did a lot to help him while at ACG. He was delighted to catch up with her on his recent visit to the City Campus. Recently, Ren considered the question, “If I had one day to live, what would I want to achieve?” After some time he decided he would want to share something of what he had learned with other people. This has led him to consider a vocation in teaching. We wish Ren, who is married and has a young son, the very best for his future.

From fish domes to vitamin gum, solar tiles and wind turbines the students worked in groups over three weeks to develop their business cases, each member playing a vital role in the project. The business plans were comprehensive and marketing activities appeared well coordinated. It all seemed to work in theory.

Bonus Supisara has often starred in our ACG City Campus Newsletters. She frequently took advantage of the many extra-curricular activities and trips offered, and was an active member of the Guitar Club. Mr Steward, her guitar teacher, believes Bonus to be a very talented music student. "Bonus learned the guitar over a few months and was able to play and sing at her own graduation in June 2012". After graduating from The University of Auckland Certificate in Foundation Studies, and spending time with friends and family at home in Thailand, Bonus will head to the University of Sunderland in the United Kingdom where she will study psychology. We wish Bonus all the best in her  university studies.
