Student Profile

Luis Pereira

For Luis Pereira, studying for his MBA was a life goal he was not sure was achievable. But he found that location and good relationships with his lecturers meant he could balance his family life and studies.

"It was a really tough decision to come to university. When I was completing my Higher National Diploma at college I found out my girlfriend was pregnant with twins. I had to decide whether I would be able to provide for my family financially and be able to give enough time to my studies.

It’s gratifying to look back at what I’ve achieved. I never thought I’d be able to support my girlfriend and our twin boys while achieving my MBA. I chose the University of Sunderland in London mainly due to their ranking and reputation, but the location also appealed to me.

It’s close to my house, so I can spend less time travelling. Plus it’s in the heart of Canary Wharf. What could be better for someone studying an MBA? It’s really inspiring. I don’t think that having children is an excuse not to pursue your education. My twins have always been the best motivation for my studies.

As I’m originally from Bolivia, initially I was concerned about the course because I thought I wouldn't be on the same level as other students. The lecturers instilled confidence in me and helped me realise that I was capable. In turn, I became more confident in my own abilities.

The biggest compliment I can pay the staff is that a couple have become close friends. They know their stuff but, crucially, they’re approachable too. The University has inspired me to think beyond the boundaries of what I thought I could achieve."
