“Living in Ashwell House for four years, it became like a second family to me. My time in London will always be filled with unforgettable memories of Ashwell House and the enriching experience it brought to my university life. I got to meet many wonderful people, learnt about numerous cultures and made friends that will last a lifetime.
At the end of my studies I managed to get a first in my degree and an achievement prize for the highest grade. I believe being in Ashwell helped facilitate my studies by supporting and encouraging me throughout the four years in order to get to where I am today”

"It's a home, a place to study, a place to make friends, a place to relax, a place to grow.ClaudiaMalta
Ashwell has been the highlight of my 2 years of study. It's has truly managed to fulfil the idea of family, whilst i was away from my biological one. Made friends with people from all over the world, most of which I am still in contact with today. Learnt about different cultures, travelled to countries through activities they organize, further developed my values, received formation, grew stronger, and finally returned back home to my country as a better package to what I previously was. "
"During my Master's year in London, Ashwell was my support, my home, and my family.
Ashwell gave me the spiritual formation I needed to push my professional development, it helped me to understand why I was studying Fashion Design Management, and to see how I could help others through my career.
It also gave me a family, friends who helped me when I had presentations, projects or papers to hand in. Having people believing in me encouraged me to work harder for my goals.
I now see the fruits of all the effort: I got a distinction at University and a job with a prestigious fashion designer in London. I feel truly grateful for all the values and friends Ashwell has given me, and what I enjoy the most is being able to share this happiness with my Ashwell Family."

"The good thing about Ashwell was that if I wanted to be alone, I could do that, I had my own private space, my room. If I wanted to meditate, I could do that in the lovely little chapel. But if I wanted to chat or have a cup of coffee with someone, I could do that as well. In the library, I could study, in the smaller rooms I could write my assignments.AnnaHungary
A safe, secure and friendly new home.
I stayed in Ashwell for half year. I completed my Media course in London, and now I work as a Television presenter and editor in Hungary."
"From the beginning I knew that Ashwell house had high standards of behaviour for its residents. Having done a year of crazy crazy university life I decided I needed to live in a family environment that could gear my talents towards excellence. That place was Ashwell, a unique student hall where we all bring forth our talents in solidarity with one another in a splendid human mosaic."DianePortugal
