Student Reviews

April 2018
Year completed 2020

Positives: Hands on experience

Negatives: Extremely content heavy and measures memory rather than intelligence

My advice to future students is: All courses are hard and have many negative aspects and are generally unenjoyable so it is best to base your choice of course on the end result and not the course itself
