Joey Wu on settling into Huish.

Being an international student from Hong Kong, studying abroad is not easy. There are many challenges I have to face, especially cultural differences between the UK and Hong Kong and homesickness. However, Huish provides a wide range of support including a personal tutor and careers advisors who are very helpful. Therefore, it didn't take a long time for me to settle into a new environment. Also, with the help of a friendly host family, many nice friends and assistance from college services, I now know more about the culture of the UK. I am getting along well with my host family as they treat me as one of their family members. This is particularly the best cure for me to get rid of homesickness!

Doing PE as one of my subjects allows me to prepare for the future.  I represented Huish to an inter-school swimming competition in South West last year. Although I did not win, it has broadened my mind by competing with other elite swimmers. However, PE is not only about doing sports but also gaining knowledge through books.  Learning about muscles and bones acts as a foundation for my aspiration to be a physiotherapist.
