Life at UCB through the eyes of our international student bloggers

Meet the International UCBloggers

Our current bloggers….

Uriel Angela Bongco – FdA Digital Marketing

Heya! My name is Uriel Bongco, but you can call me Urie (pronounced as Yuri) and I study Digital Marketing FdA at University College Birmingham. I am originally from the Philippines, but moved to the UK in 2016.

From a very young age, I always had the passion for reading and writing. I was that kid who had their nose buried in a book everywhere they went! Iā€™m also currently writing a book, and by being a part of the UCB International Blogging Team, I believe it would help me to gain experience and further expand my writing skills!

I hope you enjoy reading my blog posts, as much as I enjoyed writing them šŸ™‚

Nikola Dzambo – BA(Hons) International Tourism Management


I’m Nikola Dzambo. I’m 20 years old. I study International Tourism Management at the University College Birmingham. I come from a small, beautiful country in Southeast Europe, Croatia.

I moved to the United Kingdom in September 2020 in search of a better life and education. I have always loved to write and express my thoughts very well. Of course, it works better in my native language, Croatian, but I think it will work well in English, and while I write blogs I will practice my English so I think this is a very good opportunity for me and I hope you enjoy in reading my blogs.

Thank you!
