Quotes from previous students

"Great course, good people to work with, thanks very much".
(Buyer Behaviour student).

"Thank you for a very enjoyable course - I have learnt a lot and enjoyed the online way of learning more than I expected to! The videos are all really great and explain the concepts really well - and you can stop them and go over things again and again if need be which is not so easy with a 'real' lecturer!"
(Buyer Behaviour student).

"I was very uncertain about doing a distance paper to begin with but you made doing a distance paper fun and not stressful at all".
(Buyer Behaviour student).

"The video lectures were great: interesting, informative and easy to follow".
(Buyer Behaviour student).

"The lecture videos were really valuable and helpful. In comparison to being in a physical lecture situation, I liked being able to repeat the videos so I didn't miss notes and had clarity on what was being said by the lecturer".
(Buyer Behaviour student).
