8 Participants Comments I am lucky enough to have been offered 3 conditional offers as a result of passing this course It was difficult getting time off of work to attend practical days but they were very educational Given me an awareness of how much of a step up from Secondary School level it is, I would most definitely recommend this course to future 6th years. The best part was getting to learn about what I always wanted to learn at University
