Student Success Stories

Carlos Lopez - Spain


I came to Manchester because I wanted to work in England as a Nurse and I needed a good course of English to improve my language, and the best course that I found it was in this Centre.

I studied on the General English and Nursing course and both were fantastic. I also learned English through joining in the social programme and enjoyed discovering the city, meeting different people and making friends from all over the world.

After one month preparing some job interviews I was offered a job as a nurse in a pleasant and friendly Nursing Home in Manchester.

I can't thank the teachers and staff enough. They helped me to achieve my dream and I feel very lucky for that!

Advertising Account Director

I want to thank The Essential English Centre for everything. I really enjoyed being taught by their great teachers, and they always considered my needs. What I learned was not only about language, it was versatile – about culture, history and politics. In addition I enjoyed strong support in my application process for my first job in the U.K.

The team showed a deep interest in my success here in Manchester and they care very much about their students' personal needs. My teachers really encouraged me to be confident in my English skills, and, as an experienced professional in the advertising industry, I am now enjoying Manchester life and working as an Advertising Account Director in this vibrant city!

Stefano Scrocco - Italy

Masters student at the University of Salford

I attended a General English and IELTS course at The Essential English Centre and I found the courses to be very useful to me. I chose The Essential English Centre because the admissions staff were very friendly, warm and helpful. With their help, I decided to attend a General English course, with great teachers and a great environment.

I am Italian, and I speak Spanish, but I think that nowadays, being able to speak English is a 'must' if you want to be competitive in a global world. So, I applied for a Masters in Social Business and Sustainable Marketing at the University of Salford. My IELTS course at The Essential English Centre allowed me to achieve an overall mark of 7 (C1), and so I am now a Masters student and really enjoying my course.

Manchester is a great city to choose for the people - it is a multicultural city where you can find lots of friends with similar or totally different backgrounds, and I love it!

Beatriz Diaz - Venezuela

Shipping Communications Officer, Lloyds Bank

I studied on the General English + IELTS course so I could take my place on the MBA in Manchester and I progressed to B2 level after 2 months

I was impressed with how qualified the teachers were and how they made the classes so dynamic. The IELTS class was very interesting and I increased my academic level as well as improving my wider general knowledge. Class sizes were small too so the attention for each student was effective.

The EEC offers great prices, great teachers and a great location. If you want to feel supported and study with people who care about your future then you should go here.

Now I have started working for Lloyds bank before I start my MBA. I have to say a huge thanks to all the team at The EEC.
