Ambassador for Indonesia
My course involves seeing problems from a global perspective which it is beneficial for me because everyone in here comes from diverse backgrounds so we are able to exchange various perspectives on a problem. The lecturers are highly knowledgeable within their related fields and have been very helpful throughout my studies. Everything is facilitated with a wide range of resources and the staff are just lovely and help and assist me through every problem. As they say in Liverpool, ‘You’ll never walk alone’.
My time in here has helped me to grow as an individual and become more confident. I have learned a lot of new skills; good communication, working under pressure, how to be a team-player and management skills. It has helped me to understand how businesses and finances work on a global scale. I am sure that my experiences at University of Liverpool will help me to stand out when it comes to job applications.
You will find everything you need in Liverpool. It is rich with culture and history, its the birthplace of The Beatles and the home of Liverpool Football Club. Liverpudlians are passionate about their football and it is great to see everyone connect with each other through a shared interest. In my free time, I enjoy playing the Ukulele I learnt to play it though the internet. I also like to travel in and around the UK and I have visited some amazing places such as the Highlands in Scotland Everyone here is so warm, friendly, and welcoming which has made it easier for me study away from home. There is always something to do in Liverpool and everyone will feel like they belong here.
