What do you enjoy most?

I have great classmates as well as lecturers. Bath is a safe town to walk, as it is a small town, it makes it easier to focus on studies. Also it is very pleasant to meet people from all over the world.

Did you find anything difficult when you first arrived?

Getting use to the weather was a hassle as it varies noticeable from day to day, in particular since heating is not turn on during the whole day at student accommodation.

What did you find useful when settling in?

Yes, student guidance was really helpful; having coaches from Heathrow airport to University of Bath, other students to be available to answer questions (location of University offices, stores, etc). Having internet available at my accommodation was most helpful to search for local services.
