The structure of this programme recognises the fact that participants have busy schedules and therefore it is flexible for students to work at their own speed and time. As you start a module and acquire knowledge, there is strong motivation to learn more, especially with the group work in syndicates. The module tutors are very helpful, supportive and understanding. Their response time to questions, even the most difficult, is very impressive
