Now that my last exam is complete and the academic year comes to a close, it’s hard to believe that I am officially 1/3 of the way through my degree!
First year at university is full of exciting moments, but also challenges. This post reveals some of the struggles I have in my first year at Worcester.
Hello, my name is Aisha, I’m a first-year undergraduate studying Psychology. Moving to Worcester has been one of the best decisions of my life!
Even if it is exciting, change is not always easy to cope with. That is why the first weeks at university can be terrifying, especially if you are an international student who just arrived in a new country. During my transition from Romania to the UK, I encountered 5 challenges of studying abroad.
My first semester at Worcester is over and I can’t believe how quickly the time has passed by. Induction week feels so long ago and I can only laugh at how terrified I was during that time, thinking I would either not make any friends or literally die surrounded by books.
This time last year, I was back home, dreaming of starting my life as a student at the University of Worcester, studying International Business Management. Having just received my exam grades and had my high school graduation, the fact that my life was going to change 180° was surreal. Feelings were all over the place and this is not an overstatement.
The first thing that hits me when I get off the plane is the lovely rain, dull sky, and the oh-so-refreshing wind that nearly sweeps me off my feet. I have no idea which way I’m going, but I listen to my instinct and follow the herd. Everybody seems to rush to a little train. We travel for about five minutes, then we all get off and go to pick up our cases.
