Alongside this, our dedicated and friendly college teams will ensure that you have the help you need to adjust to life as an international student abroad.

During your pathway course, you will take a combination of core and subject modules specific to your chosen degree. It’s a great way to get familiar with your subject area while learning core university study skills such as academic writing and referencing. There is still a lot of studying involved, but all our courses are designed to prepare you in the best possible way.

I have a lot of international friends here at BUIC, and I’ve learnt so much from them. There is always a lot to do together both on and off-campus.

I would recommend UGIC because it is based on the main University of Greenwich campus, a cosmopolitan university. At UGIC, there are students from all around the world, and I've made a lot of friends from exciting places."

I think one of the main reasons the IIM (pre-masters) has been so helpful is because the staff are so supportive and are always able to help me. Whether it is understanding a module or finding out how to sort accommodation, they will help you with everything. I’ve enjoyed studying at Bangor, the people are friendly, and the environment is also really peaceful and safe. It’s given me the best opportunity to succeed in my studies here in the UK.
