The international applicant student journey

Two University of Bath applicants share their experiences as they come to study in the UK for the first time.

Cold, homesick and Hindi music (Nishesh Jain)

📥  Uncategorized

It has been a long time since the last post. It would be a little mean if I were to blame it all to the long assignment, extensive research works and the Friday submission deadline because partly I was also coping with the cold I had caught. I can’t blame the forever dramatic English weather for the cold, as it was a result of my antics last weekend, roaming in night without a jacket.

But cold or no cold through the week I was tied up in academic work, sitting on my desk with screens and just working. It was sprinkled with little periods of sanity though, in and around my English academic writing and French classes.

As I was studying through the week and recovering to full health (feeling a little homesick too), I decided to take the weekend off from studies and course mates and went out with my Indian friends to enjoy some time Indian style. We went out for a walk around bath in the day and had Indian food at a restaurant in the city and a party in the night. The following day was even more enjoyble, at one of my friends' place, we amateur cooks made a table full of Indian dishes, with loud Hindi music playing and ate it while watching a Bollywood comedy movie. The weekend couldn’t be better than that. With everything recharged and ready now the focus shifts to working for Friday's essay submission and Saturday's James Bond Skyfall.
