Student Profile: Abrham Chombe Seyoum


Warwick International Foundation Programme (IFP)

How did you find out about Warwick?

I heard about Warwick through my father, we were looking through a list of top universities in the UK.

Did you consider applying anywhere else? What made you choose Warwick?

Other than Warwick University I considered some other top universities, the list included UCL, University of Surrey, Leicester University & Loughborough University. I went online and did some research and Warwick University was one of the few top universities that have a good foundation programme. Warwick has a great lifestyle and so far the course is great.

How was your arrival?

I arrived a few minutes late to my orientation but I understood everything.

What are your thoughts about your accommodation?

My accomodation is on campus and it is close to everything I need. The rooms are exceptional.

What is the best thing about studying at Warwick?

The lifestyle is the best part about Warwick University, it has a campus which is separated from the campus but has a lot of stores within walking distance and I find that great. There is a direct link between the cities and the campus so going out to the city is much easier.

Have you joined any clubs or societies?

I have not decided to join any societies because I am a foundation student and I may or may not be here next year.

Have you managed to travel at all during your studies?

I have travelled within the UK. London is a place I have been to 3 times. I have been to Edinburgh and Cambridge.

What do you plan to do when you graduate?

After graduating I want to persue my goal and work as a Mechanical Engineer, possibly work for big automotive company one day.

What advice would you give to some considering studying at Warwick?

"Warwick University is a great place to study and a very friendly society. If you wish to be successful you must work smart, not hard, and here they will show you how to do that."
