Jeovani Brandao

Course: EFL (English as a Foreign Language)
Country of origin: Brazil 

Jeovani said that the EFL course has given him the opportunity to develop his English skills and to improve his job prospects for the future.  Through his fellow EFL students he has also discovered more about the culture and behaviour of people from different parts of the world.

He said:

“I decided to study at New College Durham as I had heard from friends about the English course and I also did my own research.  The EFL staff were very kind and professional. They were good with the students and helped them to grow in confidence. I liked the dynamics and interaction between the students and staff.

The atmosphere was very nice and the building was really beautiful and comfortable. I had the most amazing experience of my life at New College Durham and I had the opportunity to share about my country and my life with other students from all over the world, it was very interesting. If you want to join somewhere with different courses and interact with different people you will find this at New College Durham.”

Jeovani recently completed a PhD in Brazil and began a Post-Doctoral at Durham University.  He is now a researcher in Physics.
