Praew Suppajariyawat's testimonial

Read Full Testimonial

The application process was quite easy for me since I applied via an education agency in Thailand (the university have agents all over our country). Although I had a few questions before I joined the university I was able to directly email to the representative of the school programme, which really helped with my decision to study my MPhil / PhD at Lincoln. Additionally, my supervisor has always been supportive and available when needed, which has made life very easy for me.

Praew Suppajariyawat Mphil / PhD Forensic Science

On my first day of school, I knew I was going to like this place. The tutors were really cool and everyone in class was friendly. Five weeks have passed and now I know I wasn’t wrong. I not only like this place, I love it! I feel like I have already grown creatively compared to my first day here. I learn a lot from every class I walk into. Also, I couldn't have asked for a better class environment. While we work really hard cracking creative briefs, we share a lot of laughter in between the stressful moments, and that makes the whole learning experience much more enjoyable.

The tutors are awesome. They are always there to help you through any problems you have. They are also more than willing to help you outside of class hours. Did I mention they're awesome? This is my first time in the UK. I flew straight from Bangkok to Lincoln not knowing what to expect. I am really thankful to have been assisted by the great administrative team at Lincoln and to be a part of my course, surrounded and fully-supported by great tutors and friends
