As a student from the island of Malta, I must admit that the course is very well-organised and tailored to fit the needs of students from other countries. The material is well-explained and convenient and this facilitated my studies. I must also commend the excellent student service and particularly my tutor, for continuous support and guidance. My tutor always mentored me in such a way as to develop my full potential, even at times when this required him to be firm or even tough.
Finally, I would like to thank Brighton School of Business and Management for making my experience fruitful and successful.
