    Comprehsive & Thorough

    Very much enjoyed the format, scheme and delivery of this course. A professional course which was delivered in a style where you do not have to be a subject expert to understand the terms or examples, which enabled me to progress through the course. The media worked well and was accessible on smart phone and laptop devices. The information was academic but pitched in an enjoyable and relatable manner. If you are interested in Psychology like me, this course is a great starting place!
