“When I came to Ireland I found the Irish people very friendly which helped me to settle in. I studied the Graduate Diploma (Pre-Masters) Programme at DIFC and found it very helpful. In particular, we had to prepare a 5000 word dissertation. I am now studying a Masters in Logistics and Supply Chain at the University of Salford in the UK”
