We asked some of our past and current students what they think about living in Oxford and the university lifestyle. When they arrive, new students may be nervous and wondering what it will be like being a student at OMBS; these comments might help.
Caring & supportive
“Coming to OMBS was the best decision I ever made. I have learnt so many skills that I never thought would be possible and have been given endless opportunities to prepare me for the workplace. Living in Oxford has been an amazing experience and I have met some great lifelong friends”.
“I came to OMBS because university was never something that excited me. I wanted to go into the work place with a wide range of skills in a short period of time. OMBS has given me everything i need in order to do that, and along with it an amazing experience and a lot of new friends.”
“I had no idea what to expect from this course, but I now realise what a genuine insight into the world of business it is, and being able to study and live in Oxford is a huge bonus!”
“OMBS was the perfect pathway into the working world without going to uni. I now have the tools and experience to succeed in any field I decide.”
“I was a bit concerned about living in a house with students I didn’t know. Just before I started I received the names of the students I would be sharing with and their contact details. We all got in touch so when we arrived we felt like we knew each other really well.”
“After just a couple of months at OMBS I have already had huge amounts of fun. Living independently in Oxford has been one of the best experiences and I have met some of the best friends. It is an amazing alternative to university and I couldn’t be enjoying it more!”
“Not only am I enjoying my course but I am really enjoying the independence of living away from home and having to manage my own home and life.”
“Amazing alternative to university learning valuable work skills but still has the social aspect of uni!”
“I enjoy living away from home and having my own independence, along with being surrounded by new people. This is nothing like school!”
“OMBS gives us the opportunity to experience student life to the full without the worry of student debt. The work is always worthwhile and I look forward to seeing my new friends every day.”
