The best thing about being a Cranfield student is exposure, no doubt about it. It's exposure to the most brilliant minds, leading people in the industry and state-of-the-art facilities.


Many of my classmates have already been experts in the industry. I was astonished by their abundant knowledge, creative thinking and prudent attitude. I soon came to realise that being surrounded by such amazing people will only benefit me throughout my time at Cranfield and contribute to the incredible year I have ahead, both socially and academically.

We have quite a few in our team who have done a PhD or MSc at Cranfield. I particularly like the MSc course. If I find someone has got Cranfield's MSc in Wastewater Treatment or Water Treatment on their CV, then it actually immediately attracts me to know that they’ve had a really good basis of learning.
