Ewa Olszanska, HNC Accounting

HNC Accounting student Ewa Olszanska was nervous about applying for a course at West Lothian College having only moved to Scotland from Poland three years earlier. However she did apply and her fears were soon eased. 

“I knew I wanted to study but I was very worried that because English isn’t my first language I would struggle to understand people or I wouldn’t pick up on things as quickly as the others in my class. Everyone has been really supportive and when I completed the NC in accounting I knew I wanted to progress onto the HNC course.” 

Ewa has continued to excel in the course and has managed to find work within the accountancy sector while still at college. 

“I used to work in a sweet shop so now it is great to be able to go into work and use all the knowledge that I have gained at college.” 

Looking back Ewa is extremely glad she pushed herself to apply as she prepares to continue her accounting journey. 

I have loved my time at West Lothian College. I really think applying was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I would definitely recommend West Lothian College to anyone considering a further education course.”
