international students, study at Breda, in HollandAccording to representatives of the Manchester Metropolitan the level at Academy for Leisure (AFL) is high. That's makes a good cooperation between Academy for Leisure and Manchester Metropolitan possible. MMU is more focused on the theoretical aspect and AfL is more practical, so they both have input and they both benefit.

The cooperation was started because both universities wanted to offer the students an extra chance to gain international experience. This way they also become familiar with another (business) culture. It has many benefits for students, and AfL is very student-centered.

Manchester Metropolitan University and also the city of Manchester have an intercultural atmosphere. There are students from all over the world.
