Students from South Korea, Nepal, China, the Netherlands and the Ivory Coast recently took part in the International Academy Summer School and the Wolverhampton Experience (TNE) 2018 at the University of Wolverhampton where they experienced a cultural and educational programme including English language classes with elective options in Broadcasting and Journalism, Professional Communication and Art & Design.
During their stay the students visited places of cultural and historical interest both locally and nationally to support their 360 degree learning experience.
The TNE fortnight provides an opportunity for University of Wolverhampton students from transnational partner institutions to visit their home university, immerse themselves in a British environment and have the chance to peruse the wide range of further study options available to them.
Angela Molinari, Acting Principal of the International Academy commented: “The Summer School and transnational student visits allow us to showcase all that the University of Wolverhampton has on offer whilst giving students an unforgettable taster of university life in Wolverhampton."
Adam Yardley, Short Course Leader at the International Academy, said: “The International Academy Summer School and the Wolverhampton Experience (TNE) 2018 is a real multi-cultural experience and it has been great to see students from our partner institutions from all over the world making new friendships and developing the confidence and communication skills that will serve them well in their academic and professional future careers. We are also seeing students who took part on our Summer School 2017 returning to enrol on September courses, which is particularly pleasing and we hope to see this continue with some of this year’s students returning to us for undergraduate and postgraduate study at the University of Wolverhampton."
