“I definitely think I wouldn’t have passed my exam if I didn’t do the virtual workshops. I work full time while studying and if I was studying by myself, I would be much less motivated. It was a massive benefit to join the course to meet other people in the industry, I can talk to and connect to. It’s great to know what the private sector are doing, what the public sector are doing. I had Rob as my instructor, and he was brilliant – I really enjoyed his class. I definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to do the course.”

“I’d like to take the opportunity to thank AcademyGlobal and Rob for your support throughout – it’s greatly appreciated.”

“I am much more confident going through the material in AcademyGlobal’s online portal. I especially like the quizzes to reinforce what we’ve learned throughout the module.”

“Workshops are very interesting and great to hear other students’ views working in different fields.”
