Radina Dobreva - BA Linguistics

"A degree from Manchester is sure to give me a good start for my career. My course has been invaluable in giving me the opportunity to figure out what I enjoy and what I want to do in the future.

"I came to university not knowing where that would take me, and I believe I will graduate with a plan and a renewed motivation for success."
