There were many lectures that equipped you with the skills, knowledge and resources you needed. The lecturers were very helpful, so there was the freedom to be creative and ambitious, but in a supportive environment. I really thrived on the independence my course gave me, and I have taken these project management skills directly into the role I do now.
