College takes Italian student to heart

College takes Italian student to heart

An Italian MA student has been offered a helping hand by a Yorkshire college after she asked for advice from one of the college’s lecturers.

Rosanna Cuomo, 23, is spending a month in Bradford receiving extra supervision on her dissertation after emailing Bradford College lecturer Dr Khosro Jahdi about an article he wrote for the Journal of Business Ethics.

Rosanna said: “When Dr Jahdi replied to me telling he had accepted to supervise my work, I was really surprised by his willingness and kindness. By coming here to Bradford, I found that willingness and kindness belonged to the Bradford College itself as well.”

Rosanna’s home university, LUISS Guido Carli University, in Rome, is funding her stay and tuition.

Dr Jahdi said: “Rosanna’s email came out of the blue. I was only too happy to help — she has shown great initiative and is a positive reflection of the research opportunities available at Bradford College.”
