Manchester Metropolitan University

Shandon L. Guthrie

"As an international student, it made me feel comfortable knowing that they care greatly for their students in this way."

There are few academic experiences in my history that I would say have changed my life for the better, and my PhD programme in philosophy through Manchester Metropolitan University sits as the highest on this list. From my matriculation to my graduation, Manchester Metropolitan University exhibited an unparalleled professionalism in guiding me through the various steps of my studies. Their close attention to providing every resource at my disposal along with a genuine concern for how I was being treated by the University put me at ease. As an international student, it made me feel comfortable knowing that they care greatly for their students in this way.

My supervisor exceeded my expectations in every possible way. From his scholarly guidance to the rigor of his feedback, he drove me to produce no less than high quality work. He was not only an indispensable educational guide, he was a mentor and friend who encouraged me every step of the way.
