Year 3 student Marcus LAI, who majors in Mathematics and minors in Japanese Language, enrolled at University of Bath, United Kingdom, to challenge himself in new environments. The completely different learning styles and teaching methods expanded his academic horizons and enriched his learning at the same time – from relearning mathematical notations and symbols to adapting to shorter lessons requiring active engagement.
The experience also enhanced his personal growth. For instance, the newfound independence, while daunting initially, strengthened his resilience as it hit him that life is about facing real-world challenges. The new friends he made became his support pillars and their time together made his experience “truly worthwhile.”
