"I've always been interested in psychology. I want to be a clinical psychologist and the course has a very good reputation here. I'm also very interested in languages so I learn Italian and Spanish here at the University in my free time. I was a bit nervous when I started here but Welcome Week was really good and helped me to settle in. It was great fun and really useful. I made good friends in the fresher's week so I didn't feel lonely anymore.
"I work part-time as a support worker, I'll be taking care of patients suffering from a brain injury, trying to teach them how to live more independently. I also volunteer at Nottinghamshire Victim Support Unit which provides emotional and practical support for the victims of crimes which I'm sure will be useful experience.
"I would also say that studying in England is not just about going to lectures and doing work – social life is very important here too. There are many clubs and societies people can get involved in and I believe everyone will find something they are interested in. I would advise new students to get involved in student life and be open to others - they will make great friends and studying in England will be a very useful, even life-changing, experience!"
