Bishop Grosseteste University has helped me immensely in preparing me to take my next steps. I never thought I could achieve this much and get this far and it's only thanks to the University that I've been able to do it. BGU is my spiritual home and I mean every word of that. I've learned so much here and I can't fault it.
