The University has proved to have a great family-style environment. I know many students, and the University regularly offers student social events outside of the realm of their studies, so that students from different years and courses can meet. These events helped me particularly in my first year in Gibraltar, when I was a newcomer and didn’t know as many people. Additionally, I like the fact that although it is a relatively small University, it is still very diverse, and has people from many different locations and walks of life; I have learnt new things from new people. For me, this was also a big part of my learning process. Apart from that, the University can provide help on issues and obstacles that international students have to face.
I personally think that Gibraltar has the potential to be a great student town, and it is gradually becoming one. This University is still new and growing, but I would say that it is heading in the right direction. Gibraltar as a whole is an interesting place to live, with a fusion of cultures and a long history, as well as having many facilities for the younger generation and students among them.
