|ひとことメッセージ||Try to strike a good balance between work, study and other interests. University is about more than academic study, so please use this time to explore as many of your interests as possible. Being at University gave me the chance to meet people from very different backgrounds and also taught me a lot about being self-sufficient. I hope you get as much out of your time at Kyorin as I did from my years at Edinburgh.|
