Abdul from Saudi Arabia-English Beginner to Masters Graduate in 2 years

Abdul came to Wimbledon School of English from Saudi Arabia in 2019 almost a complete beginner to learning English. Now, in 2021, he is not only at an advanced level of English, but he has also just graduated from Queen Mary University of London with a Master's.

Jo, our Director of Studies, says about Abdul:

"When Abdul arrived in Wimbledon, he was so shy, and he could hardly say a sentence in English. But just a few months later, he had reached Advanced level! Abdul put so much effort into his studies that I am not surprised how well he has done, he is a star student!"

In a short space of time, Abdul went from being in a beginner class to achieving a score 7 on his IELTS exam which allowed him to join his master's course at Queen Mary's.

This is what Abdul had to say about his time at WSE learning English.

"My name is Abdulrhman Eshehri and I’m from Saudi Arabia. I would love to share my story. I came to London to learn English. One of my friends advised me to study at Wimbledon School of English. I started studying at WSE in mid-2019. My English was not good so I started learning from the beginner level but moved to the next level quickly. I studied hard until I reached the advanced level within seven months.

Then I started concentrating and preparing for the IELTS test and I wanted to get a high score in the test so that I could study for a master's degree at one of the most prestigious universities in the UK.

After a great effort, I managed to get a high score in the IELTS test, which was 7 overall, and therefore I was able to obtain an unconditional offer from Queen Mary University of London, which is one of the most prestigious universities in the United Kingdom and one of the Russell Group. 

Studying at the university was never easy, but by studying hard, attending lectures, discussing with professors and students, and reading a lot of scientific research, I gained a lot of experience and knowledge, and then I was able to achieve the dream that I came to the United Kingdom for, which is to get a master’s degree and I actually got it from Queen Mary University of London

 I loved sharing my story of how I started and how I achieved my dream.  

I am very proud of what I have accomplished and also proud that I was one of the students of Wimbledon School of English, where I benefited greatly."
