Cassidy Bechtold

Psychology and Sociology Exchange Student

I always knew I wanted to go to England but living and being a student at the University of Worcester has gone above my expectations. Every day I learn something new about life and myself. Worcester is perfect, it has just the right amount of character to make you feel at home and the campus is just the right size that you can become comfortable with your surroundings easily.

I love being an international student here because the lecturers really put the time in to help you understand the subject you are studying. I enjoy the seminars the most and I find it easy to speak up and answer questions, this in turn allows me to become more involved and learn in a way I havenít experienced before as we donít have seminars back home.

As an international student you really feel fully supported by the university as they always put you first and make sure you are getting all the information you need. My favourite place to study is the Peirson Study and Guidance Centre because it has a quiet study area which is a great place to get your assignments done. I really enjoy using their Sports Hall Gym too; itís a great place to work out.

I have found it so much easier than I thought to meet new people and make friends here. The accommodation is amazing too and a good way to make friends. You feel you can have your own space or you join in with what everyone else is doing.

I have really enjoyed my time in the UK, the people I have met have been so friendly and approachable and the history is unbelievable. It is a place full of information and things to see. It has made me realize I want to see so much more of the world and explore the unknown.

Studying abroad has given my mind and imagination so much more room to grow and I wouldnít trade that for anything.
