E KULAP (THAILAND)
I really enjoy studying here now, even though I
wasn't so sure at the beginning. This was actually
the third university on my top five list - but now I'm
really glad to be here. The university has all the
facilities a student could possibly need – a large
library, computer labs, pleasant classrooms, and a
brilliant sports centre. The staff I've had contact
with have all been excellent at their subject and
very willing to help me and other international
students. The class I'm currently in is small enough
to allow genuine interaction and dynamic
discussion between students. You have to work
hard and there's a lot of reading too, but I'm
enjoying every minute of it.

The main reason I chose this university is because my
brother said how good it was. At the moment I'm
taking a foundation course in science for engineering.
If I do well enough in my end-of-year exams, I'll be
able to get on to a degree course. The best things about
my course are the teaching methods and the fact that
all the lecturers are so patient. I thoroughly enjoy
campus life because it is quiet and safe, and also
because everyone has been so kind and considerate.
My housemates in particular are good fun to be with.
Hopefully, next year I'll be starting o degree in civil
engineering here, then, after that I'm planning to return
to my country, to play my part in its future
