International Foundation Programme – Business
The reason why I chose Northumbria University due to its well-known business and law school. As I could not join year 1, I applied for the one year foundation programme.
The studies – in my English modules we have a competition between all the students and that makes learning English fun. My English has really improved, particularly my writing skills.
The campus – the building where I study is quiet so it has a relaxed atmosphere, but the student union is very lively. I spend a lot of time in the library and as it is open 24/7 its very convenient.
My modules are marked in a way which is very clear. Each assignment is broken down and it is marked fairly. It is also very easy to get feedback from my tutors. My tutors are all very nice and helpful and will explain things thoroughly if you don’t understand.
The people – Geordies are kind and friendly. Everybody helps each other and work together.
When I first came to Newcastle I needed to improve my English. The English classes were a challenge but were fun and I worked hard to achieve the grades I wished to achieve.
Basically everything I experienced since the very beginning. I really enjoyed my time and would encourage anyone to study at Northumbria.
A Successful Future.
“I absolutely love Newcastle, there is so much to do and so many students. The campus is beautiful and there are loads of facilities where I can do extra-curricular activities around my studies.”
