Aiming for a career in financial services

Aiming for a career in financial services, Yikai Shen chose to study A-levels in Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Business at Derby College before continuing his education at Imperial College, London.

A British education is recognised throughout the world as the best. My biggest challenge at College was obviously the language but I worked hard and gained a lot of support from tutors at the College. Derby is a very nice city and I settled in well. I made a lot of good friends and everyone was very welcoming
