I like to talk with our tutors as they are very friendly, and they can explain anything I don’t know.

Kamonchanok Siriyananda - Thailand, Pre-sessional English Course followed by Msc Cyber Security

Why did you decide to study in the UK?

I wanted to study here in the UK for just one year, and then I selected Oxford Brookes University and I got an offer but I wanted to improve my English skills so they suggested the University English course.  

Why did you choose Oxford Brookes?  

I like Oxford, it’s a small place and it’s quiet. I checked out universities in Birmingham but I preferred Oxford as it is more modern. So I then checked the cost for a masters degree as I’m interested in a masters degree.

How do you think this course will help you progress on to your masters programme?  

This course will prepare me for writing academic vocab when in the future I’m doing research.

How different is the teaching style in Oxford Brookes compared to your previous university in Thailand?  

It’s quite different.  In Thailand, the teacher puts everything in ‘Do you know, do you know,’ one way presentations but in this University they don’t need you to know everything and if you don’t know something you can just ask tutor. It’s two way, whereas in Thailand they just put everything to the students.  

Would you recommend this course to another student?

Yes I would recommend it for a student if they would like to improve their academic writing, speaking, and presentation. It’s good for the future.  

Would you recommend Oxford Brookes to other international students?  

Yes, Oxford Brookes is very modern and it has good technology making it easy for me.
