          • 2010-2013, Illustration/Graphic Design

            A highly recommended institution for pursuing the study of artistic disciplines. I met some fantastic tutors and felt like part of a close knit creative community. My only regret is that my final terms of study coincided with the new art faculty's inaugural year. Best of luck to any future MSA students and graduates!

          • 2011-2013, Master's in Science

            Based on my experience I have no hesitation in recommending this School for Post Graduate and Doctoral Studies. The course content is excellent and the academic supervisors are well qualified and supportive on a day to day basis. The online library has a brilliant collection of business and professional journals and I was able to enhance my thesis by including such journals and publications in my thesis. I was also fortunate enough to have a brilliant supervisor (R Whittle) and in my opinion he went the extra mile to ensure my output was world class. The thesis findings and recommendations are ground breaking and I am glad that I studied through this school

          • 1997-2001, Hospitality Management

            MMU has always been at the forefront of education and especially nowadays the new facilities are world class. MMU can help you gain global experience through it's worldwide internship connections. As an international alumni I am still kept in regular contact with MMU through their communications and particularly their "Success" magazine. I suggest you take advantage of their world class facilities and global connections.
