Sarang Puri - India, Pre-Master's course

Why did you decide to study in the UK?
I selected the UK because of its course fees, its location, and the only fact that the duration of the course is one year. Plus, the degree is recognised in the universities and it is good for employability.

Why did you choose Oxford Brookes?
One of the reasons was its city. The literacy rate is very high in Oxford, and it is the ground stone of education all over the world. Besides, the course I am taking has got its reputation back in India. It would be really beneficial for me to take this course and go back to India. The employability rate would be outstanding.  

Why did you choose the pre-masters course?
It was because the kind of study we do back in India is very different. The English speaking skills, consequences of plagiarism, how to do the role playing, case studies and research methods: it was really beneficial for me to learn. In these six months, I have met people from all around the world and I have learnt many different things. 

What is the best thing about the course?
The best things are the teachers and their teaching. Teachers give you the homework, and the mentors provide us with explanations and why something has been done.

Which of the University’s facilities have you found most useful?
The most useful one is the forum, which is open 24/7. I am a night owl, I work at night, and so it was really helpful for me to do my assignments. Even the library services close at 9 o’clock. 

Would you recommend the pre-masters course to another student?
If it’s for an international student I would definitely recommend it. Besides the English skills, it teaches you the way of the education system, how things work around in the UK. 

What do you like most about living in Oxford?
The best part is that you see people from different regions. Also, people are helpful and it is a good place. Besides, it’s near to London. It’s a good place to live in; it’s a good place to start. 

What would be your top tip for an international student who was going to be coming to Brookes?
My top tip would be to never plagiarise – never, never, never. Teachers here have really good experiences in that sort of things. Also, I think they should enjoy living here. Besides meeting the English people, meeting people from different countries gives you a different kind of exposure to life.
