Why did you choose to study this course?

I chose to study the International Foundation Programme to help me settle into University life. I was keen to strengthen my academic and English language skills to progress on to an undergraduate degree at Northumbria.

What made you decide to study with us?

It was the highest ranked university that I was offered a place at. I am sponsored by the Qatari government which provided me with an great opportunity the study in the UK.

What do you most enjoy about studying here?

I love Newcastle as a study city, it’s safe, it’s big and it’s a lot less crowded than London. The general atmosphere is great and teaching is very helpful. All lecturers do their best to help students understand the modules and support us so that we succeed.

If you could sum up your experience so far in 3 words, what would you say?

Fun, wonderful, great
