Student Feedback

"Fantastic access to top-class learning materials. I really liked the diversity of learning materials provided."
"Convenience of being at home to receive the content, as well as when contributing to the tutorial. Can use any computer in any location to login and participate in the tutorials."
"I really enjoyed the online class because I felt a greater sense of freedom since I could be anywhere and attend class. One great aspect of the online class was that I could go back to the lectures and Art Gallery sessions many times to gain a better understanding both of which were well put together and well researched'."
""The online course offers me the opportunity to continue with my busy life, but at the same time it allows me to contact my lecturers and other students on a weekly basis. It is nice to share ideas and thoughts with a diversity of people which prevents that feeling of isolation that can occur in completing a course by correspondence."
