Johannes's international story

My parents always wanted to give me the opportunity to study abroad. My old school, near Bristol, where I stayed as a boarding student for the last two years, helped me to discover where most of my interests lay. In addition, friends of mine started studying at Bath Spa University, too.

I chose the BA (Hons) Business and Management course, as I have always been inspired by my dad who runs a world-leading business. The opportunity to work for him during holidays gave me a chance to have an insight into the company, and to experience what management, leadership and communication are all about. I wanted to widen my knowledge on these subjects, so applied for the BA (Hons) Business and Management course at Bath Spa.

In the future I hope to work with my dad and widen the business market to countries that haven't been accessed yet.

I would describe Bath Spa in three words as 'cultural, wonderful and friendly.'

"Don't be afraid of university life - university is the best time of your life! You meet so many new people from different nationalities and all come together."

What country are you from?

Germany

What is your advice to other international students considering studying at Bath Spa University?

Don't be afraid of university life - university is the best time of your life! You meet so many new people from different nationalities and all come together. You will settle down easily. You will make friends so fast, and there will always be someone around to help you.

Even language barriers can be fixed with the perfect support from The English Language Unit (ELU) and The Writing and Learning Centre available for all students. Come to Bath and experience the whole range of activities they offer, and be open to new things!
