I have found at Ulster university the people are loving, helpful and approachable.  I would advise to not miss orientation as this helps minimise challenges of adjusting to the new education system.

I wanted to come to the UK and study my Masters but outside London.  I did'nt have finances, so I applied for scholarships and I happened to be among the winners of the Chevening Scholarship.
