What do our students think?

This course provided the subject matter I was looking for and was conveniently onlyhalf a day out of the office each week. The most enjoyable parts of the course have been learning things I’ve been able to apply in my working life and meeting new and interesting people from different businesses around Exeter. It’s been hard work but not as difficult as I thought it might be, not having written an essay in twenty years. It has rekindled my interest in learning and I intend to continue developing my knowledge and leadership skills after I’ve completed the course.”
