Youna Ro was the Student Rep at the University of Bristol in spring 2016, during our pilot programme. Read about her experience being a Student Rep at her English Host University, and apply to be a Student Rep here.
Being a Student Rep was a rewarding experience in many different ways. I was able to better adjust to Bristol life by talking with students who were here since last term. Had it not been for the coffee meetings that I had to arrange with students, I would not have talked to them as much. Hearing their stories and getting advice about many different aspects of studying abroad helped me and other friends to love Bristol more. The position as a Student Rep made me more proactive and interactive. Overall, I enjoyed the experience as a Student Rep and loved the fact that UCEAP supports such activities and meetings among students.
