It's great. I'm definitely in the right place, studying what I want to do as a career. I've found like-minded people too that I feel I can relate to compared to people from home.
I have enjoyed it massively. made some great friends and learned so many skills. The foundation course helped me find out what i wanted to follow for the next 3 years. It has progressed me as a person and i feel more motivated then ever.
