Romanian Student Experience

"Ever since I was a child I had always loved animated films. They shaped me into who I am today and now I want to create something that can help someone else in the same way. Having some of the best facilities in the country for creative courses, the University of Portsmouth was definitely the best choice for me and it put me on the right path to following my dream.

When it comes to the city life, Portsmouth has a lot to offer. Being the only UK city on an island, Portsmouth has some great views, especially from the Spinnaker Tower, from which you can see the sea and the whole city. I personally love living so close to the sea; whenever I feel down or stressed, a relaxing walk by the beach calms me."
