Madusha Gunawardena

BA Business Management (Henley Business School)
University of Reading

I have just finished my first year at the University of Reading and I can without any doubt say that it was the best decision I have made in my entire life. It was my very first time away from home and family and I must admit that initially after a levels when I was considering options for my higher education, the thought of going to a whole new country frightened me. But the past year that I have spent in Reading, studying at Henley – one of UK’s well-reputed business schools, has completely turned that view around.

By looking at how I was as an individual back then and now – just months later, I myself can feel the immense difference in terms of how much I’ve grown. Leaving home as a child fully dependant on my parents for just about anything. I can now confidently say that I have become a totally independent person. This I believe is the greatest lesson that I gained from studying in a foreign university apart from the amazing academic and university life itself.

I cannot emphasize enough how much my life has changed ever since I made that bold decision to come to UK for my higher education. Therefore, I believe it is definitely something that has to be experienced by everyone.

Middlesex University

Ruwini Sandamalie De Silva

BA Business Management
Middlesex University

I was working for ST Nicolas International as a Primary Teacher and already possessed a Diploma in Early Childhood Education. I wanted to steer my pathway towards Business with a view to enhance my knowledge and skills in Business Management as I plan to work or set up an international education establishment in future. I chose BA Business at Middlesex University due to its unique course structure, reputation of the uni, professional accreditation and reasonable fees.

University Of South Wales

Tharuka Senarathne from Sri Lanka, has just started his placement at Execujet Middle East. Here’s what he has to say about his experience so far.

“I’ve always had a passion to work with aircraft. Ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to work in a dynamic technical industry. USW opening a campus in Dubai was perfect for me; I knew by studying here that there would be a higher possibility of job opportunities if I stayed in Dubai. I made my application through West 1 UK. I received a professional service from the point of application to enrollment.

The lecturing team at USW Dubai are well experienced and have offered endless amounts of support; they managed to help me find a placement during my studies at Execujet Middle East, Dubai Airport where I’ve taken on the role as assistant aircraft technician. So far, I have assisted engineers and technicians with performing routine and non-routine base maintenance tasks.
