Shushant Niroula - Wolverhampton Summer School (TNE) 2016
“I definitely enjoyed my stay at the International Academy's Wolverhampton Summer School 2016. These past two weeks have been the most memorable days in my life. I have made new friends and have met lots of new people. This was my first trip outside of Nepal and I was excited but now I feel a bit sad as the journey has come to an end. I was amazed by the warmth and humbleness from the staff and I would like to thank them from the bottom of my heart. I have learnt the importance of professional communication in an academic and professional career, the importance of expression and how creativity has no limits.
I look forward to applying these skills in my life and I hope to visit the University again in the near future.”
Megha Jajoo - Wolverhampton Summer School (TNE) 2016
“The Summer School 2016 at the International Academy has been a great time of learning and experience for me. I was extremely satisfied with the facilities and especially liked the trips that were arranged for us to London, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick Castle and many more. I have met many people from different countries and this has helped me during classes which were a mixture of English, cultural learning and animation. The Summer School was one of the most exciting days of my life.”
Wu Xue Ying - Wolverhampton Summer School (TNE) 2016
“Telford is a very good place. I like the view very much. The teachers and students are very nice and I have made many friends and have enjoyed the English language classes very much because they are different from what I have in my country. Two weeks is short and I have had a great experience in Telford. Thank you very much!”

"I have fully enjoyed the Wolverhampton Experience 2017 at the International Academy, University of Wolverhampton, in fact these last 15 days will be the best memory of my life. I came to know about different cultures, visited new places and made new friends. Being a business student I analysed international business systems and found out about different business strategies which will be very beneficial to me for my future. The teachers were so friendly and I was glad to have had the opportunity to learn in such a great environment. I made friends with people from China, Spain and Korea and I also learnt about british culture and language. I am already studying with a Partner Institution with the University of Wolverhampton and in the future I want to persue my Masters degree at this University."
