“Choosing Lancaster University for my undergraduate course and continuing my Masters here has been the best decision I’ve made. I get to work with compassionate and excellent tutors, study in a creative, green environment, and be part of a welcoming global community.” - Siti Zahra, MA Creative Writing with English Literary Studies, Lancaster University.
My counsellor contacted me every day throughout the application process and helped me receive an unconditional offer. I am so grateful to SI-UK and will never forget them. I will study very hard as I feel this is the best reward I can give the whole team.
