Today’s sessions were absolutely outstanding. I’ve been to many of these types of events at other universities and today outperforms all of them by a mile (or more!) … I’ve never had study opportunities explained the way you did today - the format was so well balanced to ensure we got enough of everything we need.

This was without a doubt the best education information and engagement event I have attended in nearly 17 years in education - exceptional!
