"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."

“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 and a place to grow. Ashwell has been the highlight of my 2 years of study. It has truly managed to fulfil the idea of family, whilst I was away from my biological one. I made friends with people from all over the world, most of whom I am still in contact with today. I learnt about different cultures, developed my values, grew stronger and I returned back to my country as a better person that I previously was.”Claudia, Malta

“I discovered a new definition of culture in Ashwell. Culture as the light that tests everything and holds onto what is good, culture as an encounter with a personal element that embraces and determines all, culture as a calling to service, and as a proof that truth is attainable only through love.”Francesca, Italy
