My degree preparation course really helped me improve my knowledge of my subject, and other key skills such as how to lead and how to work well in groups. There are great facilities here, and the level of teaching is really good.

I think the one-to-one sessions I have with my personal tutor are very useful. They give me a chance to focus on my academic strengths, answer any questions I may have, and help me to overcome any weaknesses.
