Sarah Ale – studied the UKAP Diploma in Business Management at Bangkok, Thailand
When I got to Thailand I came across an advert for a local college that ran the UKAP Diploma in Business Management. I felt that I had nothing to lose, so I applied and was accepted for a place on the course. Originally I was just going to do this course so that I could stay in Thailand for a while. I had no interest or intention of studying business at University. BUT, within a couple of weeks I was hooked! The syllabus was really interesting and I found myself doing extra reading. The teachers at my institution were brilliant and I enjoyed being the only westerner in my class. I felt that I had something to live up to. I studied the first four modules and was over the moon when I got my results ABCAB. The second semester was the same and the results just as good. I got As and Bs in every subject. My hard work had eventually paid off and I was getting the grades that I deserved!
On completion of the diploma I changed all my career aspirations. I was determined to go to university and study business. I applied and was accepted into year two of a business studies degree in the UK.
When I joined the course I found studying on the degree a breeze. We had already covered a lot of the content in the diploma and I found that my grades were all at the top of the class. I finished my degree with first class honours and walked straight into a graduate level job. Since then my career has rocketed and I am now a successful manager working for a UK university recruiting international students.
I strongly believe that the UKAP Diploma was critical in my success. This course prepared me for university and gave me a strong grounding in business theory. Studying with UKAP changed my life as I am now in a totally different career to the one that I had planned. I would without a doubt recommend any student to undertake this course. In fact when I am recruiting students, I look out for students who have studied with UKAP. I know the quality and the intensity of any of the UKAP courses and would definitely offer them a place.

I heard about UKAP from a friend and also read about it in newspapers. I chose to study through them because UKAP is globally recognised and has very high standards. It is an ideal qualification to have in today's dynamic environment. Through the course I have learnt more about interacting with computers and the internet. It may be a cliché, but the courses take hard work and determination but it pays off in the end – I am now going to pursue a Bachelor's Degree in Computing Information Systems in the hopes of building a successful career in Network Administration or Database Management.
Christopher Salaniponi - Uganda
As a result of studying with UKAP, I have already fulfilled some of my aspirations. For instance, I have obtained a BA (Hons) degree in Business Administration and an MSc degree in International Business Management. In addition to that, these awards have helped me to secure a top and very challenging job in the civil service. These things are the fruits from UKAP qualifications which were the stepping stone to where I am. I will always recommend UKAP qualifications because the world is changing at the speed of light and the UKAP syllabus is always responsive to the dynamic changes in the business environment. Its wide collection of various disciplines is customised to the needs of organisations in the 21st Century.
Archi Peters – Ghana
I chose to study my Professional Diploma* in Business Management with UKAP as the subject range the course provided was one of the most extensive and detailed I had seen around. I have been working as a Cost Accountant for Marriott Hotel and I have found that the Managerial Accounting studied under UKAP has taught me lots of things, from ratio analysis to variances, budgeting and many more theories that have enabled me perform exceptionally well in my position. Most importantly, my understanding of motivational theories, organisational structures and communication theory and processes have gone a long way in helping me understand general business and working environments within organisations, which in turn has helped me settle in my present position. I am now pursuing a professional diploma in web technology and doing my top-up degree in management. I also hope to complete the UKAP Professional Diploma in Business Management within the next 3 years. I would and have been recommending UKAP to everyone I know. Simply put, UKAP gave me the confidence that I could do any programme in the world.
Radhana Raja - Sri Lanka
What is my future ambition? Should I continue with my tertiary education, get employed, or both? These are some of the common questions that run through the minds of a young individual in search of new dimensions. I was subjected to such a dilemma when I just started my Banking career soon after school education.

I am an Executive within Customer Services at American Express and my role entails handling the retailers within the large Sales and Accounting sector in Sri Lanka. I handle all the queries from customers, including customer complaints. I heard about UKAP qualifications from my friend and later saw an advertisement in the newspaper. I chose to study with UKAP because the course can be completed in one and a half years, it's very cost effective and recognized by many universities for higher education and organisations for employment.
Nelson Evanson - Kenya - Kenya
I am currently working for Hilton Hotel Nairobi of Kenya and the business I learnt combined with the IT I trained in has given me an edge in the field. I have put my learning to good use especially the units I did in corporate finance and internet systems design. I never imagined I would receive the top paper prize and I am grateful that my hard work and efforts have been rewarded. UKAP has opened up new doors for me. Joining the course has enriched my life and I thank UKAP for being a stepping stone to a fruitful career. I am grateful for the prize I received and would encourage anyone considering joining the course to do so because it has been truly worthwhile.
Mark Chevy Bank of America - USA
Having progressed from my previous role as Account Manager for BOA , Nigeria, I am now the Sales and Service Associate at BOA Bank in Washington DC after completing the UKAP Professional Diploma* in Business Management through self-study. I chose to study the Professional Diploma in Business Management because UKAP offers me the all-round knowledge needed to excel as a world class business manager. My business idea transcends Nigeria (Africa), and I want to be a world class business manager. UKAP has taught me to work hard because it requires a special interest to pass eight courses with one month of self-study. It has equipped me with all-round business management ability and specific knowledge of business communication, marketing, accounting and business law. UKAP is an all-round managerial training organisation. I'm honoured and privileged to be part of this wonderful institution! I would continue to recommend UKAP to anybody who desires an enviable career as a world class business manager.
