What our students say

Ajay Chetan

MSc Business with International Management with Advanced Practice

"The programme helped me to understand what I wanted to do in life."

The residential programme helped me understand what I wanted to do in life and that was start my own business and grow it to an international scale. I come from a technical background and getting a business degree resonates perfectly with my future goals and what I want to do in life.

Marieli Venegas Moreno

MSc Digital Marketing with Advanced Practice

"I felt welcomed and encouraged, despite the fact my English wasn't the best."

It is a real world, it’s not like you have teachers that are really square and narrow and boring, they are really active, they try to actually encourage you, and they make you feel comfortable. Don’t be afraid to ask if you feel like your English is not the best. They will try to make sure that they can understand you.
