“I was studying at ETC school between September 2004 and September 2005. After that I started studying at The University of Central Lancashire in Preston. I did an LLM in Business Law. I am back at work for a Libyan construction company as the Manager of the Director’s office. ETC is an excellent school. Thanks to everyone at the school.” – Mohammed Bashir Elier (Libyan)
