International students celebrate at summer school

The University of Wolverhampton welcomed students from partner institutions in China and Nepal to its annual Summer School.

The celebration of culture and learning took place at the University’s International Academy at Telford Innovation Campus and included English language communication classes as well as talks from the Students’ Union and Careers office.

The Summer School students were given an overview of the University, were awarded a certificate of achievement and enjoyed visits to London, Cambridge, Stratford, Warwick Castle and other local places of interest.  They also met with Dr Gurmak Singh, Principal Lecturer for Transnational Education Operations at Wolverhampton Business School and toured the School of Engineering.

The Acting Principal of the International Academy, Dr Tony Shannon-Little, said: “We are absolutely delighted that the students have had the opportunity to make new friends, to develop their language, cultural and employment skills, and to interact with a range of staff.

“They now have a fuller understanding of what the university and the wider region have to offer to aid their academic and personal development. We hope to welcome many more students onto the Summer School in future years.”

Sushant Niroula from Merryland College, Nepal, said: “I really enjoyed my stay at Telford and Priorslee Hall.  These past two weeks have been the most memorable days in my life. I hope to visit the University of Wolverhampton again, in the near future.”
