Meet our students
We think that Hertfordshire is a great place to come and study but don't just take our word for it. Read what some of our International students have said about their experiences with us.

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!

When I was looking at universities in the UK, I wanted to find the best university for my course, and the University of Hertfordshire website showed me everything that I dreamed for, and I thought that’s the place I want to go!
The University is involved in making Robots, the group are very welcoming and said to just come along and do what you can and learn so I'm really excited about that.
I've made lots of friends, especially in tutorials where they put you in groups for each class so you get to know the people in your group well. People are friendly and great to study with. I'm in my first year, and the teachers are doing a good job of helping us get the basics. I was a little nervous before I started but I feel completely confident now.
All of the staff have been really helpful, if you have any questions the tutor will go over it with you and help you to understand. It's a great university, there is so much going on here and I would definitely recommend Computer Science, it's a brilliant course and so much fun!

Hertfordshire is wonderful, the De Havilland campus is recently built and the library is very nice.
I was very afraid initially coming from Malaysia all the way to the UK, but the moment I reached here we started the orientation programme for one week with the wonderful student guides, I really felt at home and I settled in as soon as I came here.
I have joined the Law Society where I have met a lot of friends. And the Sports Village is very nice where I go to the gym and swim. The University staff have been very helpful. I would especially like to thank Kevin Rogers and Penny Carey and many other lecturers for really helping me to settle in here. If you want to do well, choose the University of Hertfordshire they are the best!

I chose to study at the University of Hertfordshire as I believe the 3D Animation course in the University is one of the best in the United Kingdom, and I’ve seen some alumni working in a big company which helped to make great movies.
I live on campus and the best thing about that is meeting a lot of other students from around the world and sharing stories about interesting things from our own countries. I have visited London and Birmingham.
I think the best thing so far about studying at University of Hertfordshire has been the talks held by some important people from the animation or games industry. Although I’m still in my first year, networking and opening myself to these kinds of talks really motivates me to do better.
I would recommend my course to a friend because I believe the University of Hertfordshire is such a great place to be and I believe I could be successful if I make my first step from here.

I chose to study at the University of Hertfordshire because of the multicultural diversity, location outside London (yet still being close) and as an international student, it offered top value for money compared to other universities.
For my course, the University of Hertfordshire offers great value for money in terms of course content, facilities, placement opportunities and career development, not to mention that it is currently listed amongst the top ten UK universities for pharmacology and pharmacy.
I have acquired quite a varied range of useful experiences from different part-time roles at the university. I've been a student ambassador, student telemarketer, library staff and bartender amongst other things. These roles have enabled me develop skills which employers desire and look for in prospective employees, while also providing extra cash to spend....which is always good!
I have had a very rewarding time at the University of Hertfordshire, I have indeed had it all here....and you could too!
