I have secured a job in the UK and I saw first hand how much the University is trusted and valued by the recruiters.

From the beginning of my time at Manchester, I liked both the campus and the city itself. I love how international the University is; sometimes you could actually forget that you are in the UK - instead it feels like a melting pot of different cultures and nationalities from all around the world.

I was looking for a degree that would combine the two worlds of computer science and management. The University of Manchester was one of the few Universities that offers such a balanced course, matching ideally with my requirements.

I enjoy the good mix of different assignments on the Computer Science and IT Management MSc. You are frequently expected to program in teams, do presentations, or write essays. In most of the classes the exam is worth just 50% of the final result.

I have gained a good set of leadership and teamwork skills, as well as developing a worldwide network of friends whom I have met during my studies here.

The city is exactly the right size – not too big or too small. There are always lots of things to do. At the same time the distances are small, you can just walk from the university to the city centre.

A degree from The University of Manchester is a valued trademark that will benefit my future career. I have secured a job in the UK and I saw first hand how much the University is trusted and valued by the recruiters.
