Postgraduate students at the Centre of Applied Linguistics, University of Warwick, on a country walk

On the 21 of September 2016, I found myself on a flight to the UK, to travel to the University of Warwick via the WTI office in Oxford to study in one of the greatest universities in the UK. I had no idea what to expect, although I knew this would academically progress my entire career.  Even though I knew it was going to be a challenging study experience, I set my mind to learn and change, and to take in the new experiences.
