The beginning

As always with every journey there is a beginning, and here is the start of mine. I think that at first I shall tell you a little about my self.

My name is Chris Betts, I am 24 years old and I am from England. I have lived in Finland a little over 3 years now and still love it here. I moved here for one reason and that was a Finnish girl, but for unseen reasons we broke up, and I decided to stay and I did feel down and my life looked pretty glum for awhile but then my luck changed, I was accepted to start my studies at Oulu University of Applied Sciences.

This was a life changing and fresh start for me; I have many things to be thankful for at this school and not just for the education. I have made new friends, made a new start here in Oulu. I still remember my very first day, all the excitement and fear colliding like two atoms ready to explode, my nerves was on edge and did not know what to expect. But here they had a group of students know as international tutor students, who are the very first people you come to know and they are you source of information, I was very glad to meet them always happy and extremely helpful it is one of the reasons that I have become a international tutor student myself and another to start this blog to give out my first hand experiences as a student of Oulu University of Applied Sciences.

This blog is more than my practical training it is an insight to those who read it about life in Oulu as a student and furthermore an insight to what there is available for international students. The information is out there though at times not very clear or easy for international people to find, but it is available and I am here to share it with you.

So far I have done one year here at Oulu University of Applied Sciences and it has gone so fast, this is my first summer as a student here in Oulu and I would like to share this journey with you through my training and my summer.

I started my work practice training on the 17th of may and it will continue throughout the summer.  I hope you find my blog useful and if you have any direct questions I have many ways in which you can contact me and ask me directly.
