“This was one of the most well-organised, clear and practical courses I have done. The way the program was structured, the explanations in the course material, and the examples were highly effective in helping me not only understand but enjoy what I was learning, as I could see myself improving. I very much appreciate the staff for their timely and detailed feedback both on assignments and on the forums.”
