Introducing yourself

Posted on: August 17, 2010

Many of my students have been confused about how to talk about their university experience in English.

Mostly, it’s the prepositions that are tricky.

So here are some examples of the correct ways to speak about this important topic.

1. If you are attending university:

I am attending Chiang Mai University.

I am a student at Chulalongkorn University in the Faculty of Engineering and will graduate in 2011.

I am in my third year at Naresuan University…or…I am a sophomore at Naresuan University.

If you are in your first year, you are called a “freshman.” In your second year a “sophomore.” The third year, you are a “junior,” and the fourth year, a “senior.”

2. If you have graduated:

I am a graduate of Chiang Mai University.

I graduated from Naresuan University in 2009.

I graduated from Chulalongkorn University with a degree in Engineering.

3. If you are studying for your masters degree:

I am a graduate student at Naresuan University.

I am a graduate student at Chiang Mai University in the Faculty of Medicine.

I graduated from Naresuan University in 2009 and am now studying for my master’s degree in psychology at Chulalongkorn University.

I hope these are helpful! Have a great day and your English!
