"The course gave me a great insight to what goes on in the field. It gave me a great deal of inspiration at a time when I really needed it and made me so eager to go into a career in physics."
"Personally it was really helpful because I got a chance to meet lots of other people who liked similar things to me, and who also shared the same passion for physics that I have. Academically it also aided my confidence as I was exposed to all the different areas of study within physics and the different possibilities and paths that can be available."
