 1.     What do you think about your study course?

                                                 

First, I would like to note that my course is B.Sc. Logistics and Transportation. After studying this subject at University of Portsmouth for one year, I could say that I am quite impressed with it. For those of you who study logistics and transportation before, usually, you are likely to be taught only a managerial part. For example, in order to save transportation cost, you have to fully utilize the truck capacity, which results in many standard practices such as freight consolidation. Or what is the most appropriate mode of transoprtation should you use. However, at University of Portsmouth, you will be taught in a another dimention. The course Logistics and Transportaion here is in a mathematic department. Thus, it is quite different from Logistics in management classs. The course here focuses on the optimization process in logistics and transportation problems. For example, which combination of routes would lead to the shortest travelling distance. How to decide the fastest production schedule. These things are the logic behind many logistics and transportation optimization softwares. In my opinion, although you might not have logistics/ transportation management skills from here but I think that it is very beneficial to know about the knowledge behind the softwares. You will see a lot of inefficiency of some logistics tasks without a help of planing software. I strongly believe that If you are the one who wants to get big in this field, to know about both management side and the program side will earn a lot of advantage to you. 

2.     What do you think about Union Plus service?

               

In my opinion, Union Plus service is very helpful. The staffs help making a flow of documentation process goes smoothly. When you need help or suggestion, you can reach the advisory team quickly through the phone or even face to face. I think that this is a very good point as some agency do not take care of their clients as good as they should. In addition, after the student go aborad, the team are also ready to help when the students are in trouble. To sum up, i am quite satisfied with Uion Plus service.

 

 3.     What do you want to suggest to the students who wants to study aboard?

 

There is nothing to worry. Think of studying aborad as a new adventure and you will enjoy it.

                      i. Prepare yourself for the different culture, test your ielts first before you go

 

I personally believe that english skill, more precisely, evey language is something that must be practiced regularly. There is no shortcut to be fluent in a new language. From my experince, I used to take several english intensive courses a few days before the exam, it did not work. My result did not improve. So I started studying english with a new approach. Instead of studying crazily like 4-5 hours a day, I study on 1 and a half hour a day but with more frequency. By doing this, I think I am more familiar with english rather than puting every thing in my head before the exam. Another key point is that I read a lot. I must say that reading is a very effective solution that help me improving my english. You do not need to read a text book, just read any thing that you are interested in english. It will be difficult at the first time but you will finally be used to it.  It takes time and some effort to be master in english so start practicing it soon. Don’t watse your valuable time doing nothing.
