International Student Pathfinder: The Essential Guide on UK Universities and Careers is a nonfiction educational resource book written by Marvin Nyenyezi. Nyenyezi began his studies as an international student and is currently a banking professional who resides in the UK with his family. Studying overseas is an exciting adventure that can make one’s career dreams become a reality; however, it’s also a costly one that can lead to disappointment and long-term debt if one is not adequately prepared to make the most of those years of study. The author makes no recommendations about which school to attend or which course of study is the most likely to lead to success. What he does do is take the reader through the options and opportunities overseas study can bring, starting with that all-important selection of subject and place of learning. He then gives advice on how to make those years of study work most efficiently for you, and shows you how to set long-term goals for getting the job you’ve dreamed of after your schooling is completed.
Marvin Nyenyezi’s nonfiction educational resource book is a well-written and highly informative guide that should be on any prospective student’s reading list, whether or not they are planning to study overseas. There is so much within the covers of this book that I wish I had been privy to when I was considering a course of study and my choice of colleges. Far too many students graduate and end up grabbing whatever job they can find, often not even remotely related to their course of study. The author sets out simple strategies designed to help students turn their career aspirations into real job offers. Those who hadn’t considered overseas study may well end up doing so after reading the author’s work as well as the student testimonials he provides throughout the book. I especially loved his Top Tips and Recaps sections, which work quite well at reinforcing the key aspects of the material covered. The material presented in his Appendices and Bibliography is also invaluable. International Student Pathfinder: The Essential Guide on UK Universities and Careers is most highly recommended.
