To ensure you are getting the most from your programme of study, it is essential that you are stretched and challenged within the classroom or placement environment.

 

This stretch will mean our tutors and lecturers supporting you to achieve your maximum potential. This may, at times, take you out of your comfort zone and may require you to do things that are new or that you find challenging.

 

This is a healthy part of your studies and should be grasped with both hands as an opportunity to exceed within your chosen vocational or academic pathway.
