Our student stories: Victoria means business

Friday 28 June 2019

First year student Westminster Kingsway College student Victoria Freitas Tineo wanted to focus on business and found the best way for her to do this was through our BTEC Level Three Diploma in Business and Enterprise.

Victoria loves the supportive atmosphere at WestKing and feels that having so many people around her doing a variety of courses has really helped her settle into college life. Already bi-lingual, Victoria is planning to add Korean to her language portfolio by taking lessons at WestKing before going to Queen Mary University to study International Relations.

Choosing the BTEC was an easy decision for Victoria as business is a passion for her and she wanted to immerse herself fully in all aspects of it. “I think it’s important to learn about business and the business world as a whole. I think doing a BTEC is an easier way and it is also a way to deeply understand the industry.” she told us.

“I do four days a week. In my case, one lesson can be an hour or two hours long and then we might have an hour break, so during my free time I try to do research. I think these longer breaks help you to do more independent study and learning outside of the classroom.

“I get on well with my teachers, I help them, and they help me. We have mutual respect for each other. The thing I like about the tutors is that they push me and inspire me to do better, reach my goals and get to university which is what I want to do.

“I have had work experience with the Centre for London think tank so far on my course. They work with others to solve political or social issues. I’m planning to study International Relations in university and doing this work experience has supported me by introducing me to others with different backgrounds and ages.”

In her second year, Victoria wants to make the most of what WestKing has to offer and will be joining the International Relations club and starting Korean lessons to add to her growing language portfolio of English and Spanish.

Whatever you want to do, enrolling at WestKing could kick-start your career too. Find out more about all our courses by clicking on the Courses menu option at the top of the page. For more on our Business and Enterprise courses, click here.
