Maria Stylianou from Limassol graduated with a BMus(Hons) Music degree at Huddersfield.
"Two years ago I was in the USA doing foundation - ESL and at the same time I was doing some modules of music.
"After that I decided to study in the UK. The reason is because it is not far from my country, the tuition and fees and the living are also cheaper than in the USA. I searched on the internet and found Huddersfield to offer the best qualifications.
"I originally began at Huddersfield with the International Foundation Year which really set me up for my degree.
"My Course has a good range of modules and subjects. I am doing music because I love it. I have been playing piano since I was 10 years old.
"Huddersfield is a quiet but good size town. You can find anything that you need here. I mostly enjoy the campus for the reason that it's in the centre of the town. I can tell that people are friendly and helpful wherever I go."
Maria planned to return to Cyprus to become a music teacher.
