Meet Ghada from Bahrain, who completed the International Foundation in Business and Humanities with INTO, and progressed to The Manchester School of Architecture to study BA (Hons) Architecture.

Why did you choose to study the Foundation programme with INTO?

It was for many reasons, including its cultural diversity. Part of the experience of being abroad is meeting new people and INTO seemed allowed me to meet people from different backgrounds – it was truly an international experience. Also the programme was not limited to art. INTO Manchester allowed me to learn about a range of subjects within humanities and broadened my knowledge and understanding of different things.

How did you find the modules you studied at INTO Manchester?

The modules I studied at INTO Manchester were all unique. Being on the humanities course, my subjects were Politics, Economics, Business and Research and Communication Skills, and these strengthened my understanding of the UK which in turn eased my settling in process. The Research and Communications Skills module was particularly useful and interesting as it helped improve my writing and analytical skills – skills which are needed later on at university.

How did INTO Manchester help you progress to Manchester School of Architecture?

During the university application process, the staff were always cheerful and willing to help with anything I was struggling with. There was always someone to help at every step of the way. By being able to contact architecture professors, the university staff were able to get answers to my questions quickly.
