International students taking part at the International Academy Summer School and Wolverhampton Experience (TNE) 2017 programmes have experienced a varied cultural and educational Summer School programme.
The students have taken part in English language classes and have chosen options in Broadcasting and Journalism, Professional Communication and Art & Design. They have also completed and presented project work during class and have visited Liverpool, London, Stratford, Shrewsbury, Cambridge and local places of cultural and historical interest.
The students on the Wolverhampton Experience (TNE) programme have also received guest lectures on Careers and Business and have been given tours of City Campus. This programme provides an opportunity for students from our partner institutions to visit their home university which they are studying through, whilst improving their English language skills and experiencing the very best that the UK has to offer.

"The Wolverhampton Experience 2017 has made me more independent and self sufficient in performing my activities and we got the chance to visit historical places with other international students which helped us learn about new cultures. I made a lot of new friends and they were so friendly that I am finding it difficult to return back to my country" - Rishika Kothari
"I found the teachers very co-operative, interested and polite. My future plans are to do a Masters in Marketing and continue to study at the University of Wolverhampton" - Nabin Karki
