I’ve found the blended nature of the course gave me the best of both worlds. The flexibility of the online material allowed me to balance my studies with working and raising a family, while the small class size in on-campus tutorials fostered a real sense of familiarity with my fellow students and lecturers. This ensured I was always fully supported with my studies. I would recommend this course to anybody looking to further their education but hesitant to pursue a degree through the traditional route.
