Student review
Overall I thought my studying experience was great. If I had a problem it was solved ver quickly. The staff were very helpful with the unit and always willing to assist with extra help or extension on assignments (Sometimes it was hard to submit assignments and completing normal everyday life, sometimes a weeks extension was needed to catch up).
