The reason why the University is a good place for international students is that there are many international students and we can help each other.
What would you tell people back home who are thinking about coming to Bradford?
I will tell my parents and friends the city is a good place to live in.
How did studying on the Pre-sessional English course help you?
The reason why I chose the pre-sessional course is that I want to improve my English and to prepare for my further study.
In addition, the course helped me a lot especially with my speaking and writing skills.
Before the course I was always afraid to speak English in public. Moreover, all the teachers during the course are very nice and kind, they are patient and they try their best to help us to improve our English.
I would recommend this course to friends and advise them to attend this course, because it will help them to learn about the culture and life in the UK which will be very helpful to their further study at university.
And through this course I have made many friends.
