Marcin Bieniasz from Poland

Marketing, Advertising & Public Relations BA (Hons)

I have chosen University of Worcester, because studying abroad in English-speaking country has been a dream of my life since ever.

University of Worcester has become a perfect place for me to make my dream come true. There is a big number of international students here, from different places all around the world. Meeting students from other ethnic backgrounds is just amazing for me. While studying at the University, in Worcester you have got a chance to make friends for life. I really like the way our module tutors explain and discuss with us, students, particular subjects. They always make sure that everyone who attends the lectures and seminars is well prepared for the assessments.

You can always count on help from the other students or tutors, and I think this is a huge advantage of University of Worcester. Also I would like to point out, that Worcester is a beautiful city, a great place for students to live in. There are plenty of pubs, nightclubs, cafes here. It is a good place to do some shopping, because you can find lots of good brand shops on the high street and in the other areas of the city centre. It is really worth seeing! 

I recommend everyone to become a student at Worcester and I can assure you now, that you wouldn’t be disappointed at all.

Agata Dziamka from Poland

Creative & Professional Writing and Screenwriting BA (Hons)

I’m Agata and I came to Worcester form Starachowice in Poland. I graduated from Screenwriting and Creative & Professional Writing with a First Class degree in November 2017.

From the very first look at the University and the city, Worcester seemed like a place that would provide a “home away from home” – and this first impression was definitely correct. The stress and scare of moving out of the place I grew up went away the second I stood on the University ground and saw how warm and open everyone was - always willing to help, smiling. The teaching standards were high and the lecturers always made sure the students were happy with the course and with their own work. The support I got from my teachers exceeded my expectations – the relationship they tried to build with every student was always based on supportive and professional ground and as long as the student was happy to co-operate with that they finished with high results! I love Worcester because it’s just right – not too big, not too small. There are many great places for socialising, but also a lot of quiet, private places where I could just sit down and write or study. Any bad things about Worcester? Seagulls. But no worries - it’s easy to learn to live with them!Thanks to the amazing experience that studying at the University of Worcester was I gained a lot of skills – academic and professional, transferable skills - that helped me get my dream job within the International Recruitment Office. Being a student was easily the best time of my life and I would go back to the Uni any time if I could. It’s life-changing and inspiring and I will never stop recommending the University of Worcester to future students!
