Radostina Todorova Dimitrova

BA (Hons) Business Management

My overall experience has been fantastic! I’ve made a great group of friends. My class size is small and we have a laugh with the tutors. The lessons are completely related to the job you want to do, and the course has made me rethink on what career I want because it leads you to many high paying jobs! I’ve learnt laws, legislation and skills that will benefit me in my career and its only my first year here! During the coronavirus, teaching has continued and tutors have been in regular contact to make sure I’m OK and to check if I need help. They’ve even worked out of hours to provide one to one support to get me through assignments! They’ve really gone above and beyond!
