Student PhD success story!

Meet Mine. Mine came to Hilderstone College in 2012 in order to improve her English so that she could take the IELTS exam. She was the writer’s first ever student at Hilderstone. She was enthusiastic and she worked hard. After two attempts, she got the grade she needed to do a Pre-Sessional Course at the University of Middlesex. From there she worked hard again and passed her MBA. After working as PA in a Turkish multinational company,  she decided to study further and take a PhD.This year (2021) she completed that journey when her PhD thesis: Development Antecedents on New Service Performance: A research on E-Commerce Businesses was accepted at the Bursa Uludag University in Turkey.


Mine is evidence that studying at Hilderstone can bring your dreams alive. We believe in quality: teaching, homestay, life experiences. This way, you can aim high, work hard and get success. Success with us allows you to achieve more with your life. Mine is the perfect example: Learning English helped her to complete her PhD.
