What the students say

Elena TAZEVA from Russia: ‘This was a great opportunity to meet people from different cultures and make friends with people from around the world. It was the first time that I had lived alone without my family, and it was a good experience to learn how to take responsibility for my own study time and free time. And Bath is a great place to live.’

Hyok Jin Lee 3
Hyok Jin Lee from South Korea: The course is organised so there are assignments and assessments spread through the year, not only at the end, so we always have a chance to improve. The programme is really well-structured. And it was easy to settle in at the beginning – everyone was a bit nervous at the start but there were events to help us get to know each other and make friends.”
