More about Jenny

What made you choose to study at NTU?  

The welcoming environment was a big deal breaker when making my final decision to study at NTU. Also the fact that during my time here I could participate in the Erasmus international exchange programme as well as take part in the University Language Programme.

What were the key features that attracted you to your course?

I felt that European Studies, when combined with History, would give me a much broader understanding of Europe as well as the history of key places I had not previously learned about.

What do you enjoy most about your course?

The fact that the two courses intersect and link together, before starting the course I thought that there wouldn’t be any crossovers. However, the two courses unexpectedly link through the different cultural modules along with the core themes that run parallel in both courses.

What do you think about the course staff – include lecturers, tutors, administrators and technical staff within this. How do they support your learning and University experience?

My Lecturers and tutors alike have been fully supportive when need be and I have always felt that they are available if I have an issue.

What do you like about studying and living in Nottingham?

I like the vibrancy of the city. It’s become very homely to me, I really feel like it’s become my second home.

What has been your greatest achievement at NTU so far?

The greatest achievement of this year will be having the ability and motivation to work hard and achieve the grades I want.

What are your plans for the future?

In the future, I hope to complete either a masters specialising in Eastern European Culture/History or a law conversion course.
