The thing that attracted me to The University of Hertfordshire was The Business School, tutors, law department, nice campus and nice area, and the very nice helpful people. My hobby is dancing but right now I want to focus on my studies. The University staff have helped me to learn more about the university and my course, and all the other students on my course are very nice. I have chosen to learn Spanish as part of my course. The University of Hertfordshire is very nice, the tutors are very good, it is a very beautiful campus and it's worth coming here!

I heard about The University of Hertfordshire in my country and I researched it and found out it's a fantastic place to study. The campus has fantastic facilities like the LRC and the social events at the Forum are great. It's very easy to settle in the UK, people are very friendly. And you get to meet people from all over the world in one place and it's easy to communicate with each other. My hobbies are going to the gym and swimming which I can do here at the Herts Sports Village. The lecturers, tutors and general staff are very helpful. We have a placement and study abroad office to help us if we have any questions. At the LRC if you have any problems they are open all hours to help. Hertfordshire is a great place to study; London is very near to Hatfield only 20 minutes. You will get everything you want in one place if you come to study here at Hertfordshire!
