Ipswich: University welcomes overseas scholarship students – Ipswich Star

Students from overseas have been welcomed to Ipswich, with a special reception held at the University of Suffolk. 
Each of the international students has a scholarship to study at the university, and is studying a wide range of subjects from screenwriting to data science to artificial intelligence.  
They were welcomed to the university with a special reception held at the waterfront campus last Wednesday. 
Among them was Angela Odii, 25, who hails from Nigeria. She spoke at the reception on behalf of all the scholarship students, expressing thanks for the opportunity to study at the University of Suffolk. 
“I keep pinching myself to make sure this is true – that I am actually here,” said Angela who is a qualified pharmacist now studying for an MSc in data science and artificial intelligence. 
“The university and its staff are very supportive, and Ipswich is full of friendly people. 
“We receive a lot of support in our study and general university life. 
“This is a university very interested in you as a person. Every day you feel like you are wanted.” 
Other students echoed her sentiments. 
Emma Carrion Moschen, 18, hails from Spain and is studying BA (Hons) in screenwriting.
She said: “Ipswich offers something for everyone.  
“Being away from your support system can be very difficult but if anyone is feeling homesick don’t be afraid to meet new people.” 
Amit Saurabh, 39, hails from India. He now works locally for BT Openreach and is studying for the Suffolk Executive MBA. 
Offering advice to future international students, he said: “The University of Suffolk is going to be your home away from home, and provide you with a personalised learning experience.” 
Professor Helen Langton, the university’s vice-chancellor, was there to welcome the new students. 
She told them: “It is really important to have an eclectic mix of students. 
“You are an important part of what makes the University of Suffolk the vibrant place that it is, and you will be taking the education you are benefitting from here out into the world.”
