Miss Klao Siksamat BAS class of 2012 Tourism Management MA, University of Westminster It must be a destiny that I got into BAS. I didn’t expect to be accepted but when the first class started, I knew that this was going to change my life. At first, I only wanted to improve my English skill studying in an international program, but when time passed, I realized that I’ve gained more than I ever wanted. My English skill improved and I got used to studying with non-Thai professors. I thought it would be hard adapting myself with this new studying style and environment but I was wrong. I blended in quickly with the help of professors and friends. Apart from the English skill, I have learned to express my own opinion, which was something I rarely did in Thai school. BAS gave a wide range of courses to take; economic, politics, history, art, literature, and so on. These are reflected in places I travel to in the Western world. I see things, such as culture and history, and I understand them. Because of these different courses and professors, my view of the world expands and I discover what I really like. What I have gained from BAS will surely benefit me when I go on with a master degree and working life. It was a precious time here and because of BAS, I’ve become who I am today.
