Columbia, pre-sessional University English

I love living in Oxford. Initially I came for 6 months to learn English and I’ve been here for a year and a half already. I found out I could study here in Brookes not just for my master's but also to improve my English. What I want to do is focus on my professional life so I think Oxford is the right place to do that.

Natali Sanchez Mendez - Columbia, pre-sessional University English

Why did you decide to study in the UK?
I came because friends and family told me that I would learn proper English in the UK. In Columbia we always learn American-English. I was also interested in experiencing another culture.

Why did you decide to study at Oxford Brookes?
I love living in Oxford. Initially I came for 6 months to learn English and I’ve been here for a year and a half already. I found out I could study here in Brookes not just for my master's but also to improve my English. What I want to do is focus on my professional life so I think Oxford is the right place to do that.

Why did you choose to study this course?
I know that I have to prepare myself for an university international course because my wish is to take my master's here in Oxford Brookes as well.

What’s the best thing about Oxford Brookes' teaching style? 
They support us with any problems or weaknesses we have in certain subjects by developing our skills. In my case, my teachers gave me specific extra work.

Would you recommend this course to another student? 
I will definitely recommend Oxford Brookes University because I have noticed the difference between the English I studied at the college I first came to and the level of University English that I’m doing here. I already tell my family and my friends that if you really want to learn English then you need to do a University English course and if you have the opportunity to study in England come to Oxford Brookes. It’s a really good place and it's affordable.
