Talking about students’ achievements, Stuart White, Managing Director of CATS Colleges:

“Congratulations to all our students on their outstanding offers. Our pupils join us from all over the world to prepare for university success by developing their English, study skills and subject knowledge. At CATS they do all this in a supportive environment designed to meet the needs of international students.”

One of the many students who has received top university offers is Kristiyan from Bulgaria. He hopes to pursue an Economics degree at one of the Russell Group universities in London.  As part of his studies at CATS College Cambridge, he joined the after-school club, the Royal Economics Society.

“We look at contemporary issues of the UK economy. Every session is different because something always happens in the Economy. We spent time discussing the Bitcoin hype, and recently we talked about the Government not bailing out Carillion, which is a very big company in construction.”
