When did you study at Northumbria University?

I studied at Northumbria University during the academic year 2017/2018.

What subject did you study at Northumbria?

I undertook mainly food-related modules, such as New Food Product Development (my favourite module of my whole degree), Diet and the Brain, Research Methods on Food and Nutrition, Nutrition through the Lifecycle, Applied Nutrition and Bioethics. I was fascinated by the content of all of them and the teaching methods.

Why did you decide to do Study Abroad?

I wanted to become more independent, live in an international city and improve my English.

Why did you decide to come to Northumbria University?

What mainly propelled me to apply for Northumbria University is that is a well-known and recognised University that congregates lots of international students. Besides, I spoke to a friend that studied one year abroad there before and it fascinated me the effort made by the University to integrate  international and non-international students by organising multiple activities, such as trips to near towns, meetings, parties, etc. 

What is your favourite memory of being at Northumbria?

I still miss living there and being able to walk everywhere and combining an amazing social life with my studies.

Did you find living in Newcastle expensive?

What I found the most expensive was accommodation. However, I found basics like food or transport very reasonable.

How will you use your experience of Studying Abroad at Northumbria in the future?

Studying at Northumbria changed my mind completely. I found the path I want to follow in my professional future and decided to give it an international approach. I also became more independent at work and active in searching for new opportunities that would enrich my knowledge, such as conferences, summer schools, etc.

Studying at Northumbria changed my mind completely. I found the path I want to follow in my professional future and decided to give it an international approach.
