Lyuboslav: Well I was searching through a lot of courses on Google and yours popped out. I liked it and eventually settled for it.

Bucks: How has your experience been so far?
Lyuboslav: Awesome! It is way better than I had imagined. People are friendly, helpful and organized. The university itself looks very modern, has cutting edge equipment and hosts a lot of cool events - so yeah, I like it.

Bucks: What has been the biggest challenge you have faced?
Lyuboslav: I’ve got to say, even though that may sound pretty surprising for some people, the most difficult thing for me was getting on a plane, landing in Heathrow and finding my way to High Wycombe and university accommodation. I’ve never flown on a plane nor left my home country so it was a pretty stressful experience.
Lyuboslav: I’d like to see more effort spent on getting new students familiar to Bucks and how everything works, because I’ve found it difficult to find information on activities, sports, social clubs and so on. Possibly we should have a tour of all the facilities of the university when we first arrive.
Bucks: What advice would you give to other students from Bulgaria and other countries who would like to study at Bucks?
Lyuboslav: Research, research, research! Get as much information as possible about the course you want to study - and possibly feedback from students undergoing the course at university - to see if it suits what you want. And if you like it, go for it! It is very exciting to experience student life at Bucks New University.
