Time of day
Level 3 has been a big jump from Level 2 but the tutors have been great in supporting me with that transition. The campus is really cool and it doesn’t feel like a college at all. It’s a really useful place to study. There’s so many things to learn on the course, about business and taxes, there’s also great career opportunities at the end of it. I’ve had an amazing time so far.
