Student feedback
"During the course I found myself able to escape the rut of studying just to pass exams. I found a new zeal for learning and a lust for knowledge that I had somehow lost. I am so grateful for that." 

"The teaching was absolutely brilliant. It really challenged me to think way beyond A Level and also at the real-life applications of the topics we studied."
