Neil McKenzie, Director of Studies and Head of International Foundation Programme at Abbey College Cambridge

‘What I most enjoy about working at Abbey is the international environment and teaching children who are hungry for knowledge. Although the UCAS process is gruelling, it is extremely satisfying and rewarding when students tellyou that they have an offer from their first choice university.’

Neil completed his undergraduate studies in economics at St Andrews University before undertaking a masters in economics at the University of Bristol.

Before teaching, Neil worked in finance in a variety of roles, including as an analyst and gilt supervisor at the Bank of England. Neil also has extensive experience working in the city of London and in US markets as a trader, risk manager and director.

As one of our directors of studies, Neil helps co-ordinate university applications via UCAS, and helps students make their indivicual university applications, providing advice on references and personal statements. Neil also heads up our International Foundation Programme.
