As an international student, my experience on arrival remains my motivation to help other students who are planning on pursuing international studies.
As an English speaker, I had an initial difficulty coping with a difference in accent. In addition, the complexity of an international airport with diverse activities and distractions could derail ones understanding of a map. I had these experiences.
Progressing from Heathrow to Birmingham cost me eight hours. I know it must have cost other students more in cash or having to seem homeless for the first night of arrival.
These of course could prove worse for non-English speaking International students.
Everything country is pushing to attract more international students. But then, they have to be guided on ARRIVAL.
At VICITA, we are taking the responsibility of welcoming the next thousands of students from China, India, Pakistan, other Asian countries, Nigeria, Ghana , other African countries, Latin America, Europe, Australia, Canada with a tailor made information to ease transition to their destination cities.
