Jinlu, originally from China, was the first person in her family to study at university. She decided to study for a degree to enable her to be more competitive when searching for jobs.

She chose to study at the University of Cumbria because it has “a quiet campus which is good for study, and the university is developing rapidly.”

Jinlu liked “the way in which lecturers gave the lectures; both fun and academic. The staff in the International office really helped me a lot with my life and study after I arrived here.”

University really changed my plan for the future.

Asked what she enjoyed most she says, “The volunteering project! We went to an animal rescue centre and cleaned the inside and outside of the house. Even though it was a tiring day we all enjoyed it a lot.”

She adds, “University really changed my plan for the future. Now I have more time to think about what I am going to do.” Asked what advice she would give to current students she says, “It is never too early to start all the assignments!”

What she will miss about university life?

“The library, and the atmosphere on campus.”
