  20. 20. What our students say <ul><li>“ The atmosphere was great. The people were really friendly.  The students were from all over the world so you got to know people from other cultures.  The tutors were really good – they helped you when you needed it, and not just with the course, but outside the course.  It’s not always studying, we could enjoy Manchester too.” </li></ul><ul><li>- Abdul Rahim, now studying MEng Petroleum Engineering at The University of Manchester </li></ul>
  21. 21. What our students say <ul><li>“ The tutors were fantastic, and really very encouraging.  The small groups meant I got lots of attention and the work was a good mix of class work and individual study.  The English course really helped me to understand essay structures and how to write academic essays.”   </li></ul><ul><li>- Fernanda Souza, now studying Politics and International Relations at The University of Manchester </li></ul>
  22. 22. What our students say <ul><li>The English for Academic Purposes course was really helpful for preparing me to study at the University doing law.  When you’re doing a professional course like law, you’re doing a lot of essays, and referencing, and you have to structure essays properly, so this course was really helpful. </li></ul><ul><li>Also, because I am doing law, the politics classes were very helpful too.  What we’re doing at University now is what we were doing in politics last year, so it’s good that the INTO course prepared me to do this and the politics was one of the most useful things for me.   </li></ul><ul><li>- Fawad Syed, now studying Law at The University of Manchester </li></ul>
