We value staying in touch with our former students, learning about developments in the field through their work and giving them the opportunity to update their practice with us. As well as inviting UK-based alumni to the Sir James Matthews lecture each year, we keep in touch with our graduates in a variety of ways.

My tutor was absolutely fantastic and had excellent up-to-date knowledge and experience. My lectures were well planned and perfectly matched to my needs as a specialist teacher.
