Alisa Murillo is from Costa Rica, and is 18 years old. She joined the Summer School at the International Academy in 2016 and she has decided to return to study on the International Foundation year. She then wishes to continue onto BA Fine Art undergraduate degree course at the University of Wolverhampton.
"I originally came to the University to do a Summer School course to improve my English. However, after my wonderful experience with the University I decided to return to do an International Foundation year and then continue onto an undergraduate degree course.
"Many things influenced my decision to come back to study my degree; the amazing installations, especially in the Art department, the incredible support given to the students by the University but especially the amazingly friendly environment formed by the staff and the students in the University."
Alisa has commented that lecturers genuinely care about student progress and whilst studying at the International Academy she has become a better student and has gained many essential skills.
