Student Profile(s)

Himali Mishra

Studying in an International University was one of the biggest dreams of my life and coming to University of Bristol has proved to be the most wonderful experience of my life. It has provided me with the opportunity to experience a multi-cultural environment and a global atmosphere. Although I did find it in the beginning to adjust to the vast differences in culture and lifestyle, gradually with the help of my friends and colleagues, I am well settled. I have now had the opportunity to interact with students from different parts of the world and got to know about different cultures.

The beautiful city of Bristol is full of life and welcomes you with open arms. Having the city as your campus is even more amazing, being surrounded by students with a friendly and comfortable atmosphere all around you. The scenic beauty of the place is worth apprising depicting the perfect blend of modern architecture with an ancient historic flavour.

Undoubtedly University of Bristol excels in academics. The course modules are well organized in such a manner so that the student can get into it right from the basics of the subject. The faculty and staff of the University are very helpful and friendly and we are taught and mentored by well educated and well known professors and lecturers. Apart from studies the University provides various other facilities for the students like sports clubs, gym, swimming pool which helps us in making new friends and develop a favourable social surrounding.

As a student I have always been hardworking and honest towards my studies and receiving this scholarship was one of biggest achievements of my life. I feel very proud and honoured that I could stand among one of those students.
