The following is a testimonial from one of our students in our educational travel program in the United Kingdom.
First, I would like to review the service provided by my agency - D&D team, which was on a very high level, hence I was really satisfied from that. They provided me with good information, what to do and how to handle myself there. Regarding Brockenhurst college - I was absolutely surprised about it, in a positive way. The school was completely different like schools in my country, in every single aspect. School food, facilities, service for international students by International Department was provided very professionally, and mostly - the school teaching. Lessons there were pretty interesting, based on equal relationships between exchange students and English speaking students, moreover between teachers and students.I have learned a lot of new things, which I will definitely use in a future. The third important point was my host family. Sandra and Peter Fairbank. They were really nice and kind and I had very good relationship with them. We could speak about anything and they were there for me when I needed some help. I was really satisfied with the family and I will never forget them. To sum up, I would rate my staying absolutely positive, I enjoyed it there and met lots of new friends.I would strongly recommend this exchange to everyone. Juraj H.
“The facilities are really good; everything is all in one place. The tutors and classmates are really helpful and friendly. Living at the Hall of Residence, I have met lots of people from different cultures and have experienced different ways of life. Living in the Hall of Residence has been a great way to meet new friends. I like cooking with my flatmates and sharing the different foods from our home countries.
“This city is a great place to study as it is much safer and quieter than a city, and as well as having its own shops, it doesn’t take very long to get to other cities. I have travelled to many places around UK since I lived here.”
“I decided to live in the Hall of Residence because I wanted to be more independent. I have a room all to myself but I still get to live with friends, which is great. The free internet allows me to keep in touch with my family and friends at any time.”
“I chose this College as it is a much better selection of subjects to choose from than other colleges. You can also combine A-Levels and BTECS, which is great!”
