Passport and visa

Poland

I had a choice of universities offering this course and LSBU's was accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

Magdalena Strzeminska, BEng Mechanical Engineering

Magdalena went on to say: "As well as being accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, my course has opened doors for me and I've taken the first steps towards becoming a Chartered Engineer. The thing I've enjoyed most about the course has been the variety of units on offer."
