“My master’s degree at Sunderland helped me to develop my research skills which I find most helpful in my everyday life and my ability to relate and communicate with stakeholders. All these have had a positive influence on my career growth.”

“I first heard about the University from my friends who had studied there. I admired the intellectual and social transformation I noticed about them and that for me was a crucial element. I also wanted to be impacted with new ideas, new knowledge and new attitude to drive my career forward.”

“My experience at the University was an exhilarating experience and a breath of fresh air, I learnt new things while relating and interacting with people from different races and cultures in a peaceful environment. The lecturers were engaging and always willing to assist. They provided the needed guidance.”

“During my time at the University I forged long lasting relationships and I still keep in touch with fellow classmates from India and Spain. I also keep in touch with graduates in Nigeria with whom I meet now and then.”
