International Study Centre

Daren's story

Sussex ISC Student Daren

"Tutors at the International Study Centre are very friendly and the teaching here is different than at the University. International Study Centre teachers are closer to students and they help me feel comfortable."

“After my bachelor degree in Singapore I wanted to get some experience by studying overseas. I chose the University of Sussex because its location is really good. Students here can enjoy the peace of the surroundings and the proximity to Brighton.

When I arrived in the UK I did not have any idea about my future job. I chose Management and Finance which keeps all my options open. The International Study Centre gives me all the academic knowledge I need so that I can progress at University. It also helps me to improve my English skills – especially the writing part which is really important for me. Tutors at the International Study Centre are very friendly and the teaching here is different than at the University. International Study Centre teachers are closer to students and they help me feel comfortable.

I like the campus and its sport centre. I play hockey in the Sussex team. Practicing sports relaxes me and enables me to take a break from my studies.

The most enjoyable thing in the UK has been meeting new people from different nationalities and expending my network of friends.”
