Deciding to move abroad to pursue a higher degree in a different language is certainly challenging, but since I came to St Mary’s I’ve felt at home.renata

The University is amazing in many different aspects: the campus structure, atmosphere, resources, support departments and staff. Everybody from staff is so thoughtful and accessible, including the lecturers who cares about you as a student and not just as a number. 

I chose to study in the UK not only because the quality level of education but also for  the particular developments on my study field. St Mary’s programme completely matches what I was aiming to specialize on and I specially highlight the course content which is astonishing and intrigues you to go deeper in each subject.    

Even when I don’t have lectures it’s possible to go to the gym, to the library or attend one of the events the University constantly offers. I also hang out nearby the campus where I can find caffés, pubs, cinema and shops, always exploring this new culture.
