“Myself and all the tutor team are so proud of you all. When we chose the programme back in the Autumn term, we knew it would challenge you and take you out of your comfort zone, but you’ve totally risen to that challenge, and have exceeded all our expectations! I can’t tell you how proud I am of you all!” – Helen Minshall
