          • Testimony
            2010-2013, Bachelor of Science

            I felt that there was no stone unturned during my time at The University of Manchester. Everything I could do, I did do and it made me a better person as a result. I don't think there's many universities that have the academic prestige and plethora of opportunities that The University of Manchester has.

          • Testimony
            2012-2014, Master's Degree

            I completed my masters in the Human Resources Management and Development programme by distance learning. The support and encouragement from the staff (administrators and tutors alike) created a great rapport with the distance learners, and my favourite aspect was the international outlook of the programme which allowed me to relate my studies to my environment; this deserves a top rating from me!

          • Testimony
            1975-1979, Ph.D

            I attended UMIST, now merged into the University of Manchester, between 1974 and 1979 while earning M.Sc and Ph.D EE degrees and doing a year of post-doctoral research. I found the teaching standard to be very high. The emphasis on practical applications rather than purely mathematical/analytical techniques, and being taught by practitioners rather than theoreticians, kept the subjects relevant and interesting. The seminal research performed under Dr. Geoff Gott was later recognized globally -- the association with that work helped me in my career.
