Feedback from previous students:

'The tutor, the course content, the dialogue between tutor and learners, the exercises and the facilities are the best I’ve experienced on any course- by a long way'

'Chris Lewis-Jones [tutor] has an addictive and fluid method of teaching… that is conducive to a variety of learning styles.'
