Our students have been the most successful in top ten Italian Universities
A letter to our students
Our students have been the most successful in top ten Italian Universities.
Thanks for the lovely experience ,
What a great satisfaction you have given me and to ILM staff!
As you know, our students from the University Preparation Course have been the most successful in two Universities and in top ten among the rest of the Universities.
90% of you started in January with a zero level of Italian language . Now that you studied hard, you were committed, you fought well, at times you were angry but we were there for you, sharing all the pain and hopes and here we are again!
Roy is in the first place within the ranking of Medicine in Florence, Avi is the first in Veterinary in Pisa. Roni, Tom and Roee are among the top nine in Florence, Shira is the fifth in Bologna (and Roni, tenth ) Congrats!
Was that easy? No!! Not at all!
We made it, word by word, test by test!
I had to console you, motivate you, scold you sometimes. All different; different personalities and many obstacles to overcome but all with the great project of studying at the University in Italy.
I was there, to share every smile, every tear, every protest, every discussion, every attention.
As soon as you arrived, I told you that it would be difficult but that you would have to trust us, because life is made of choices….And those who chose our school in Pisa, made a commitment with their families, with themselves and with us.
How many times have I said “no one is left behind”, how many times have I repeated that our job is to bring everyone to the university….
An ambitious project of mine but achievable.
Unfortunately those who chose (or could not) NOT to follow at least 70% of the lessons did not pass the exam. There are 3 students out of 17 enrolled but, not having attended at least 70% of the lessons, they cannot be considered our students.
But in order to pass the exam, it is necessary to attend and follow our lessons carefully, take our tests and study at home. We facilitate learning, we create roads (even bureaucratic) to face the entrance bar exam, but choosing to study is the students’ own choice. Long story in short; If the student is not motivated, then he should not come to our school.
Students who have followed the course regularly are placed the best in the individual rankings; those who wanted or could follow less still got their places.
So thanks again !
Thank you for your trust, for your commitment and for the courage with which you have faced every difficulty. I wish you all the best for your studies and for your life.
And when you are in Pisa, please pass by our school and visit us!
