Surrey is International 🌍

Hello Everyone,

It’s been exactly a month since my last blog post. Have you read it? I talked about loving being an International Student Ambassador and gave you 3 reasons why. Just in case you are looking for a flexible part-time job when you arrive here in September, this is THE DREAM JOB for you.

Speaking of ‘International’…did you know that? Here at the University of the Surrey: We are International!

In my very first blog post, I had shared my journey to Surrey and the main reason why this University had won over the other ones I had been accepted to. However, what I forgot to mention was the fact that the diversity in the student population equally played a major role in my decision.
