The students seemed to be really enthusiastic about their courses and I felt that these were the kinds of people I would like to study alongside.

I have been given confidence that I actually can apply- the application process has been clarified and made to seem less daunting.

Super event, really helpful.

The people were informative, helpful and friendly and willing to give you answers.
