“I enjoyed lessons most of all, they are so engaging and inspiring!  My teachers have stretched me so much, by suggesting extra work and resources and giving helpful feedback which really helped to broaden my knowledge.

The Pre-Degree Diploma really helped me find out about universities that offer my course and pin down my choices for application, I also learned about careers after university.

A lot has changed in the past two years, but the most important thing is that my time at Abbey helped me to find my true passion and be who I want to be. “


From Egypt
International Foundation Programme Medicine Pathway
Course Medicine at Aston University

“Although I was a little nervous at the start, I need not have worried – everyone was ever so friendly and welcoming. The learning resources and equipment in the college were good. The teachers made the classes enjoyable and they were very interactive. Having small class sizes helped my confidence and communication skills.

I got really good help and  when preparing my university application and did well in my examinations and managed to get to the university and onto the course I really wanted. The experience at Abbey College Manchester was one I will never forget and hopefully, there will be more students from Egypt that will come and study in Manchester in the future.”

“I think my teachers are one of the main reasons I was able to perform well throughout the programme.  They were a constant factor of providing support whether academically or for other reasons.  They always encouraged me and pushed me to apply for Aston even though I felt I was not good enough to get in. 

Abbey College Manchester has made me a lot more open minded.  I made me understand the responsibilities I have towards myself and to those around me.  It has made me more confident and I feel better prepared for university than I was a year ago.”
