What our students say

Daniel Morka

MA Marketing Communications and Branding (2016-2017)

Daniel Morka

Prior to enrolling at Edge Hill University, I worked with one of EHU’s student recruitment agents in Nigeria, marketing the school’s facilities based on the knowledge I had gotten from promotional materials at my disposal. I must confess, my expectations matched reality and even surpassed it!

International students are provided excellent support by the international office, while my tutors at the business school have been highly efficient in imparting knowledge. Without a doubt, it’s been nothing short of amazing.

I love the Teaching methods and the quality of the teaching facilities. The teachers and other support staff are very kind and supportive.

It is a good place to study with excellent facilities. I enjoy the support and concern I get from everyone.
