  • Lots of presentations and information and the general scheme was indeed insightful!

    5/5

  • 4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • Not really relevant until/if you follow a job in this profession. However this is unavoidable, I would be complaining if I had spent two weeks learning about my degree!
