Over the last academic year, six students from Germany, Switzerland and Norway have been studying with Wyke on a programme led by Education First.
Education First is a world leader in international education and facilitates students in studying in countries all around the world. Wyke has worked with the organisation for over 16 years, providing fantastic opportunities to study with us and experience British culture.
Our six exchange students have opened themselves up to a world of opportunity, travelling to the UK and living with a host family whilst studying a unique programme of courses.
Claire Michallat, Teacher of English as an Additional Language, has worked closely with the students and seen them develop over the past year; ‘Our exchange students have had an excellent year at Wyke and have all really immersed themselves in the whole education experience. Their English has also flourished as well as their perspective on British culture and education. It has been fantastic to work with them and getting an insight into their own culture too!’
Anna Hanhardt, came to Wyke from Germany to study Health & Social Care, Art and French has summed up her experience; ‘I have really enjoyed being here! The time at Wyke has definitely made me more self-confident. I have also met nice teachers and friends that I will never forget!’
Maud Haugland from Norway enrolled on Sociology, German, English Language & Literature and Applied Law courses; ‘My experience at Wyke has been really inspiring and full of opportunities so I am thankful for getting to experience my exchange year here.’
It has been a great privilege for our College to welcome these students to Wyke and we wish them every success in their futures.
