Global Engagement Master's Partnership Pathway 2020/21. Progressed to MSc Accounting & Financial Management
I am Zitong Xu. I am a member of the Joint programme of Beijing University of Chemical and Technology (BUCT)-University College Dublin (UCD). Therefore, I had an opportunity to have a half year studying journey in the Pre-Masters programme when I was a senior student in BUCT.
It is quite challenging for Chinese students to listen to the courses and express their opinions in English, since we have never had this kind of experience before. Pre-Masters provides us a good chance for me to jump out of my comfort zone. The reasons are two. First, it can improve our English level and reduce the language barrier. Second, small class sizes facilitate interaction between students and teachers. For me, I always asked questions and answered tutors’ questions. During this period, I found my way to talk with native speakers and spread my ideas with others.
I cherish this learning experience and I highly recommend Pre-Masters. You are not alone in this learning journey. Our tutors are kind and hardworking. They can support you if you have any questions about knowledge and language learning. What’s more, you may recognize a lot of friends, which may comfort, encourage and motivate you at any time, since you have the similar learning experience and are all fighting for your goals at the similar age.
