Testimonials

"The delivery! The tutor has been a fantastic teacher. I've felt engaged and comfortable throughout the course which is harder to achieve when doing online courses. The breadth of knowledge has been invaluable and I've really enjoyed and appreciated all of the examples and personal anecdotes and experiences that have been shared during the course."

"The whole course was so interesting, the content and delivery keep you engaged throughout the course. The tutor is fantastic, offering industry insight and examples at each step through the course."

"The tutor was very professional in the delivery of the course content, very informative and helpful throughout."

"I really enjoyed doing the course online. I think the tutor handled it really well and had a great structure organised which really allowed plenty of time for informal chat and discussion, as well as time for group work, independent work and learning. Also, as this is a course about the environment I appreciated the non-travel aspect!"

"The online course allowed for much more diverse group of people. People that may not have joined if the class was held in person."
