The course offers such a broad variety of modules to study, which I could pick and choose from based on what I enjoyed and was interested in the most. I’ve learned how to use statistical packages like R, how to create final accounts and had the opportunity to learn about current affairs, politics and the impact of Brexit. This variety has opened doors for my career.
