South Korea, pre-sessional University English
Why did you decide to study in the UK?
The best thing that I’m satisfied about is the research, and the writing, because I’m not familiar with writing and researching in the UK education system.
Sujin Kim - South Korea, pre-sessional University English
I wanted to study more about my major Architecture after my bachelor. First I considered the English speaking countries, so I looked at the UK and USA. But I love Europe more than America, so I choose the UK. Why did you choose Oxford Brookes?
Actually, I applied to other universities as well, and I also got conditional offers from other universities. But I needed an IELTS score of 6.5, and my score was just 5.5. I couldn’t get that score before the middle of September for starting this semester, and I wanted to study University English more rather than getting the score. So honestly I only could join this university. What do you like about the English course?
The best thing that I’m satisfied about is the research, and the writing, because I’m not familiar with writing and researching in the UK education system. Then the teachers are very friendly. Even my English is not good, but I could receive information very well. Did the teaching staff and support staff help you settle in?
Yes, they provide workshops and orientations during the starting days. Before starting the course they provide a programme for international students. That way they help us with some scheduling for my study, so it’s very useful. Would you recommend your course to other students?
I really want to recommend my current course to international students. The first time I enrolled, I already worked on improving my English. Not only this; the course also gives me many important skills for my postgraduate course. Do you recommend Oxford Brookes to other international students?
Yes, I feel very comfortable in what I do. I feel very safe in Oxford City. And the facilities for students are also quite good and the most important thing is that the college room in my current course is really good.
