Student Profile: Osama Alruwaili – PhD in Linguistics
I heard about Bangor University through friends already studying here.
The International Ambassador Scheme …
Having spent several truly amazing years in Bangor, I know both the city and the university inside and out. I have also been very involved in the student community, particularly in my position as the head of Bangor University’s Saudi Club. The Bangor Saudi Club, in collaboration with Bangor’s Saudi Society, seeks to provide essential support to incoming and current Saudi students, including help with application, registration and enrolment, finding accommodation, as well as offering various events for students (both Saudi and non-Saudi). While some of the work is done in person, we also make avid use of social media.
What is the most difficult thing about being an International Student?
The different culture may cause some problems for international students.
I enjoy the modules and staff are amazing and being a teacher as well is a good experience.
The lecturers are very helpful.

I am the former head of the Saudi students club in Bangor, and advisor for the Saudi society in Bangor University. I enjoy football, sports in general, travel, going out with friends, out for a walk, gym, volunteering work …
