“I am a second year student from Poland. I am studying
Mathematics at Undergraduate level. I started in September 2008 and
expect to graduate in 2012.
“I started University straight after I completed my secondary
education in Poland. I chose Wolverhampton, first of all, because I
like challenges. Living and studying in a foreign country is
challenging, but it also gives you lots of confidence, satisfaction
"Secondly, I have seen studying in England as a great
opportunity to improve my English, meet people from all over the
world and learn new things. The University services and facilities
have also played an important role in my choice. I knew about the
excellently equipped Learning Centre, new Technology Centre and a
range of services the University offers in order to develop
students and make the learning process more effective.
"Bearing in mind all the above I finally decided that University
of Wolverhampton will be the best option for me.
“During my application period, I was fortunate enough to enter a
competition that ran for that year only, to design a website for
the School of Computing and Information Technology, for which I won
a £1,000 Scholarship towards my fees.
“Arriving at Wolverhampton and settling in was easier than I had
imagined. There were many friendly members of staff, ready to give
directions and help with moving in. I also received my school
induction programme prior to my arrival, so with everything sorted
out I had time to settle in, meet new people and enjoy fresher’s
“During my first year I was living in Lomas Street Halls of
Residence and throughout my stay I have experienced a very good
service. Members of staff were helpful and the Residential
Assistants were available to answer any questions. I have met many
people, made friends and enjoyed social events. This year I am a
Residential Assistant, using my experience to ensure residents are
having a good time whilst staying in Halls. Also during September
and October I helped residents connect to the wireless network at
the University and got paid for it. I currently work in a bar to
assist my finances.
“Now, looking at academic life, in my opinion it’s very well
organised. Currently, I have four modules per semester and lecture
notes are usually available on WOLF prior to the session, so I can
prepare myself, and then get the most from my lecture.
"For some of my modules I have workshops, where I can apply
knowledge gained from the lecture into practical exercises. There
is always a tutor available, so I can ask questions if I have any
problems with a task. There are also lunchtime tutorials where
lecturers are available to answer any questions and help with some
academic challenging issues.
“I think Wolverhampton itself is a good city for students; many
places are accessible by walking, it’s not very expensive, it has
many pubs to hang out with friends and beautiful West Park is ideal
for walks and jogging.
"The city has also a very good train and coach connection with
other main cities in the UK, so it’s very easy to plan a short
trip. So far I have visited Oxford, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Liverpool
“To summarise, during the time I have spent in Wolverhampton I
have gained more self-confidence, improved my English, met people
from all over the world, made lots of friends, gained valuable work
experience and developed myself personally and professionally. I
recommend the University of Wolverhampton to anyone who wants to
get the most out of their time spent at University.”
