Lukasz is a 2nd year BEng Renewable and Sustainable Engineering student at Wrexham Glyndŵr University.
What were you doing before coming to Wrexham Glyndŵr University?
I worked in retail for 11 years, half of this time spent in managerial positions.
What attracted you to Wrexham Glyndŵr University?
The interesting courses, and being local to me. It was also important that the University staff were supportive of my application.
Did you attend an open day? What were your impressions?
It was a great event to meet tutors and I found out much more about the course. I spoke with two course leaders on courses I was interested in and had a campus tour to find out more about what is at the University. That was where I actually decided to apply on Renewable and Sustainable Engineering after chatting with the course leader.
What’s the atmosphere like around campus?
I like that all the staff are helpful and you can spend time in the Students’ Union.
What do you enjoy most about your course?
It is fulfilling my interest in engineering, but also my passion for cleaner energy and solving environmental problems. I enjoy our annual trips to places related to the course like wind farms, hydrogen farms etc.
What do you hope to do when you graduate?
I am looking forward to joining the industry, and after a couple of years’ experience maybe start my own venture related to renewable engineering.
What has the support been like?
Great, from the beginning I was in touch with people at the University during the application process and received lots of help. Now the best thing is easy access to all teachers, as you can contact them within days or faster set up a meeting to speak about any issues.
How do you think you have benefited from studying at Wrexham Glyndŵr University?

If you were to sum up your experience at Wrexham Glyndŵr University in one word, what would it be and why?
Friendly. It is extremely easy to get time and attention from tutors if required, they will know all students by name, and all the other staff are helpful.
