'I really enjoyed my course. It was mainly coursework based which worked well for me as exams made me nervous. My course mates were very supportive, and I found it really interesting to hear their opinions. I have made some friends for life! The loan storeroom was also very useful too as it provided free equipment for us to use for the duration of the course!'
