Lakdhar M. Kadkadi


MBA Top-up student

"The University of Worcester was recommended to me from my previous university and I can honestly say I feel proud being an international student here. This institution is really committed to providing a truly international education, improving life for individuals and societies worldwide.

As a Tunisian all my previous university courses were in French language which means I am familiar with the French system. However because of teaching support from all faculty members was very responsive and proactive the opportunity was given to me to know better about the quality education of the English system. I would like to take this opportunity to reiterate my sincere thanks and appreciation to those that taught me.

I found Worcester a nice, clean and quite city which is a great place to live. No matter where you are from, or where you end up, there is bound to be a friendly Worcester face."
