After graduating from the University of Manchester with a BA in History and Philosophy, Alex went on to teach English to university students and working professionals in the Czech Republic, South Korea, and Saudi Arabia. While living abroad Alex became interested in international education and learning languages, leading him to spend a year studying Korean at Seoul National University. Before returning to the UK, Alex worked in South Korea as an academic supervisor and an English textbook editor.
His vast experience working with students abroad brought him to work at FIE, where he is excited to have the opportunity to assist international students studying in the UK. As well as Korean, Alex is also studying Japanese and enjoys cycling and playing guitar in his free time.
