"My name is James Smith. I'm studying business management and I'm in my first year. The scholarship has made me very proud of my achievements to date - from my efforts at school to my interests in both the sporting and musical activities that I'm involved with.
"The first thing that I noticed about University is, it is really well organised, and the facilities are state of the art and I have never seen anything like it.
"From a social point of view, the amount of people I've met - it is just phenomenal and not just local people - people from different nationalities and from different backgrounds.
"In the future, I would like to hope that I obviously finish university with a top-class degree in management. I also hope to hold a key role within the oil and gas industry.
"I believe the scholarship that I am on will not only bolster my CV, but my experience of being a scholar will mature me into a stronger and more efficient employee or candidate."
