Imagine Yasmin, a student at Pearson Online Academy UK Global.
Aged 16, Yasmin lives in Penang. She has her sights set on the University of Cambridge or Stanford University, a career in medicine, maybe even a Nobel Prize one day – which is why she is thrilled to have been accepted to Pearson Online Academy UK Global.
Yasmin has just completed her International GCSEs and is now engaged in a personalised programme of International A Levels and extracurricular activities. But Yasmin’s main focus is her academic work: She loves that her daily lessons include deep, challenging material that she can master at her own pace, live online sessions with her teachers and peers and individual guidance.
Yasmin is also developing her leadership skills by leading a school-wide computer programming group and preparing for the Economics competition later in the term. She additionally serves as a volunteer at Mount Miriam Cancer Hospital for one hour each week.
Although she is busy and focused, Yasmin always enjoys the time she spends in her classes and extracurricular activities where she has made some good friends from India, Singapore and the Gulf.
Meanwhile, Yasmin's parents are delighted to have discovered this high-quality but affordable schooling option for Yasmin. They are also glad to have direct insight into her learning and regular opportunities to consult via email and video chat with Yasmin’s teachers and Success Coach about her progress.
