WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY

As an international student, dorm life was super important to me. It's an easy way to make friends in a new country, so being placed in a flat with internationals and British students was super helpful. But if you also like privacy, it's awesome having a room to yourself and having the option to socialise on your terms. For this price, I was instantly sold and privacy just made the college-going experience a lot less stressful since I didn't have to share with a stranger.

ABOUT ME – Caitlyn Banania, Americas Recruitment Officer

I'm not only an American who decided to pursue my degree at UEL, I have also been guiding students aspiring to do the same, as a member of staff in the International Office for the past few years. I fell in love with London, through my time at UEL, I couldn't get over how diverse and relentless this city is. My experience was further enriched by all the people I met – both British and international.

Even if you if you're just thinking about studying abroad, it doesn't hurt to ask questions - trust me I did! If you know you want to study abroad, why wait to start your journey?

Completing an application is one thing, but what happens next? How do you apply for housing, scholarships, possibly a visa? What do you need to consider when studying abroad?

Don't worry, I'm here to help you take it step-by-step and anytime you need me, I'll only be a call or an email away!
