Where are you from?


Why did you choose to study at Northumbria University?

I found a scholarship here. I was planning on going to Australia and studying there, but when I was looking for scholarships, I found one at Northumbria University London. I decided to apply, everything ran really smoothly and then I came here.

I also had a look at the modules for the programme and they looked really good. Plus, I had always wanted to come to London.

What has been the biggest challenge about studying?

Well, for starters, I thought coming to university was going to be quite hard as I don’t like writing.

It was a really big decision coming from my job to study here, but I was willing to study. When I found this university and the scholarship I thought it would be great because I have always wanted to practice the language more. I did learn English about 5-6 years ago, but I forgot everything and wanted to learn it again.

What do you hope to do with your qualification once you finish university?

I don’t know yet. I really want to stay here in London, but it depends on whether I find a job or not. I hope I can find a job here that’s in my field as I used to work as a Civil Engineer for a French company in Colombia.

Would you recommend Northumbria University London to others?

Yes, I would. I really like our lecturer, Phil. He has a lot of experience and has taught me a lot.

The environment in the campus is really good, too. It’s so easy to make new friends.

I have also heard from others that the Advanced Practice option for the Masters programmes here is really good too.


“I chose Northumbria because the AACSB double accreditation for the Business School was attractive to me. The ability to develop my language skills was another element which I liked, I wanted to improve my English and work with a diverse group of people. I most enjoy being in an environment which is so diverse as it gives you more vocational skills. Participating in group work has encouraged me to adapt my learning style and ability to work with a wider range of people.  The teachers here are very open and encourage us to keep in touch with them regarding our work.”
