What our students say

"The course material was of a high standard and I acquired new assessment skills as well as refining existing handling techniques. It was a comfortable learning environment which promoted open discussion and interaction between students and tutors”

Liverpool, March 2016


"The module has helped me look at the practical application of tests, to improve my handling skills and keep up to date with current practice. The tutors encouraged us to think about the rationale, reasoning and evidence behind the tests and to actively discuss this with the rest of the group”
