Current scholarship holders

"My participation in the ‘Open Europe Scholarship Scheme’ has given me a great opportunity to get access to the education in one of the best universities of the UK. I am currently studying on the High Education Foundation Program on Business Studies course, a Warwick foundation program in Stratford-upon-Avon College. In this course I have a chance to improve my skills in academic studies and prepare for University life. Studying in college gives me really interesting experiences and helps me to immerse myself into a new environment and lifestyle.  What is more I can communicate with students from different parts of the world, and this is very interesting when in your group of 20 people you can talk with Chinese, Korean, Russian, African and European students.

While doing my studies I’m living in a local English family and this is also a great chance for me, because I can improve my English talking with native speakers every day. I can experience the real British ‘way of life’ and it helps me to feel confident in different, unknown situations because I can always ask my host family for advice. 

I am happy to be where I am now, aiming to gain new knowledge and to get a good education, which contributes to establishing my future life."
