我是蔡君浩,來自台灣. 我是一個MBA學生在UEA.

時間過得很快,一轉眼來UEA的時間已經過了8個月.回想當初雖然出國唸書一直是自己的目標清單之一.原因是因為想要讓自己的視野變的更廣闊,另外也因為想要多看看這個不同的世界.但是一直沒有很努力地去實行這個夢想.可能一方面是少了一股衝動,另一方面也是因為害怕改變.要放棄多年的工作,去追尋一個未知的未來.這真的需要很大的勇氣,但是很幸運的,我得到家人們的全力支持來追尋我的夢想.

我的故事是,我已經工作多年並且已婚,在結婚後我們一直期望有小朋友的誕生,但是卻總是沒有消息.因此幾年過後我們決定朝夢想前進,申請英國UEA的MBA課程.但就在我拿到學校Offer的同一天,我們也得知了懷孕的喜訊.一切就是這麼巧合!我想這一切都是老天安排,因此在小朋友出生一個月後,我在去年九月獨自一人來到了英國讀語言課程.而後有將近半年的時候與家人分隔兩地.而我的老婆小孩也在開學兩個月後過來Norwich與我一同生活.

身為一個有家庭的MBA學生,我的學生生活體驗與大部分的同學不一樣.多了一個可愛的小朋友在身邊,生活變得很充實,但是小朋友的照顧需求卻是無時無刻的,每天下了課後,跟別人不一樣的是,我會回家照顧小朋友與他一起玩.在他睡著後,在安排課業的工作.這也是自我時間管理的一個挑戰.UEA對於有家庭的學生非常照顧,學校提供Village Close的Family house給學生家庭,讓小朋友有足夠的空間玩耍與活動.另外對於小朋友的健康,Medical Center固定時間都會來關心與詢問.讓我能夠放心無後顧之憂的全心念書.

來Norwich第一個要習慣的是英國腔,我想這是很多國際學生都要面臨的必經過程,不過不用擔心,過幾個月你就一定能適應了,哈.Norwich真的是一個很安全與友善的城市,我常常帶我們小朋友去Earlham Park、UEA的湖邊,或是Norwich Cathedral,每每在路上或是公車上,都會有路人開心的與他玩或是互動,讓我們倍感溫馨.

建議

給想要來英國念書的朋友建議,最重要的是要釐清來唸書的目的,你期望在這段時間內獲得什麼?是留下工作?繼續深造?回國發展?目標清楚後才能夠提早準備與規劃,這方面可以email或是電話找學校老師談談,了解學校的教學方向與內容是否與所想要的一致.決定方向後就是全力以赴,邁向目標.MBA是一個未來CEO的訓練課程,包含了許多的管理理論與實務分享.要在短短的一年時間內要融會貫通,並且學會跟不同文化背景的人相處和工作,我相信這會是一段很充實與難忘的回憶.

The last few days here the weather has been more temperamental than that of the UK, which is saying something. It has gone from the mid 20s (degrees Celsius) to 8 and now is just starting to recover back to the warmer temperatures. 877 more words
