Ming Yi Chen

Marketing Management MSc

Instead of staying in other main cities in England, the City of Worcester was much more suitable for my postgraduate learning and deeply experiencing the British lifestyle. In the beginning, I always worried that my English speaking was not good enough to live and study here, especially with the British accent. Actually the British here were very friendly and willing to help me.

As a student at the Worcester Business School, I found that it was totally different from studying in Taiwan, the tutors provided lots of opportunities to let us express our viewpoints and the students were active to share opinions with each other. In class, I could absorb many experiences from other international students. Furthermore, when I met difficulties with my study, I would go to the language centre and ask for help.

Unlike other universities, there are many more students from countries other than China here, and it provided many chances to improve my English speaking and come in contact with various cultures from other countries.

The International Centre hold lots of social events for International students, and it made it easier for me to make friends with other students.

The Campus provides every facility we need like The Hive - the first joint university-public library in Europe, Students’ Union and the outstanding gym. There are also several student restaurants and Starbucks Café in the campus. After class, I really enjoyed picnic on the green areas with my classmates or had a cup of Starbucks coffee in the bright Students’ Union.

No matter any problem I met, the tutors and staff were always willing to give me the great help. Studying here might be the most precious experience in my life.
