CITY student, Amelia Fox attending the MA in Counselling Psychology with a Practicum shares her study experience with us

"In October 2016 I moved from the UK to Thessaloniki to start my Masters in Counselling Psychology with a Practicum at the university of Sheffield International Faculty, CITY College. Thessaloniki is much larger than the city I completed my Bachelors in back in the UK. It is an exciting city with a great community feeling and is an excellent place to be a student. There are many apartments in the city for students and staff at CITY College are always ready to help international students find a place to live. My apartment was right in the centre, a short walk from the sea front and the Ladadika District, where there are tavernas with wonderful, reasonably priced Greek food. Thessaloniki has an amazing night life and is a great place for both shopping and sight seeing. The Student Union of CITY College plan many events for the students, I took part in the Alexander the Great 5k Marathon with some friends. This is something I used to do back in the UK so was glad to have the opportunity to continue in Greece. During the weekends and holidays I travelled to many places in Greece outside of Thessaloniki. Within the first year I visited Athens, Meteora, Mt. Olympus, Edessa, the beaches of Halkidiki and some of the beautiful Greek Islands. Most of these can be accessed by the Thessaloniki main bus station or student trips. There are many sites to see in Thessaloniki and learn about the history including the Arch of Galerius, Rotunda, White Tower, Umbrellas, Castle and Churches. Many of my friends and family from the UK visited throughout the summer and we visited many of beaches close to Thessaloniki and it was very easy to travel to the beaches in Halkidiki. There are different activities to do in Thessaloniki including renting bikes at the water front, bar cruises, a waterpark and the escape rooms. The International Faculty, CITY College has different sites across the city which provide good facilities, my course is well organised and the staff and lecturers are always extremely supportive and helpful. I have met some amazing friends from different countries at the University and I also adopted a Greek kitten who I brought back with me to live in England. Thessaloniki has a great atmosphere and is a beautiful city to live, I am happy I made the decision to study abroad, it has been a great experience and I would definitely encourage others to study in Greece."

Amelia is now back in the UK doing her counselling placement with young adults.
