From our students

I really enjoy the practical, problem-solving aspect of the course – how we are taught the skills to solve a problem, rather than just memorising endless facts and information. I feel this is good training for helping me tackle real problems in the workplace.
— Clayton Bevas, Chemistry (2017)
