Accepting the job as the warden of the Elephant House was a bit of a challenge for me at first. I had been staying in a lovely place for a year somewhere in Bristol, so leaving that ‘safe place’ was slightly scary. But I decided to give it a try, so I packed all my stuff and moved to the house. And that was a good decision… My duties…

I have always dreamed of a job with international dimensions. Having studied languages, I taught English for both private and public institutions in Russia where I acquired a love for all English especially experiences gained through studying oversees.

If you work at the reception desk you come across a variety of unpredictable questions. Most of the time the front desk is busy, sometimes it can be challenging, but I can assure you that it is never boring.  The number of course-related enquiries increases when it comes to the spring and summer.

Having worked as an intern at BLC for six months, I have come across a number of various tasks. In my job you need to be very flexible and ready to learn new things. I started as the person who does the copying and scanning, who prints out student handbooks, goes to the post office and tidies up the classrooms at the end of the day. Over time I was given more responsibilities and the job…

Being the Welfare officer at BLC is a very interesting job. I am often asked to help out students with things that are not always related to studying! Many of our students hope to find a job while they are in the UK and often request help writing CVs.  They are something that everybody struggles to write whether they speak English as a first language or not. However, writing a CV in a foreign…
