Congratulations to Kaixhang Zhang one of our International Access to Art and Design students whose work was selected by University of the Arts London …
All teachers were professional and very good at their job because they like teaching. As always they are very patient and never say ‘never’! Because of their positive motivation I can understand how many steps I jumped up. If I have a great IELTS result my plan will be to apply for PhD in my country and the topic will be Human Rights Studies.
Quite frankly I have not any bad memories from the British and other nationalities such as discrimination or any prejudice. Mostly people are open minded and very warm for foreigners. I am sure I will really miss respectful and smiling faces.
All four courses on this programme are challenging, even Pure Maths is not as easy as I thought as I had taken A Level Maths and Further Maths, so they all require us to have high self-discipline. I chose to take Social Psychology, it is an interesting subject which teaches you a lot about building relationships with others and encouraging others in the real life, to be honest, this course really impressed me a lot … I would say that this programme is such a good choice for many international students who want to go to uni in the UK.
