(Student Profile)

Rebecca Morito

"Being taught by leaders in the field was amazing, and the way the modules were structured was intuitive and easy to follow. The fact that classes were over two days allowed me to continue with part-time employment during the rest of the week. Feedback was prompt and thoughtful, and lecturers were approachable and always willing to help. The project gave us the opportunity to get valuable experience conducting our own research, and the placement allowed us to develop practical skills."
