What other students have said…

‘Professor Wellington was just amazing! A good presenter in all aspects. Listening, asking and engaging with the audience and so uplifting with positive vibes. Interesting in the people. I truly hope that he will do more lectures!!’

“”Professor Wellington has an amazing personality. He really engaged with the audience. He conducted the workshop very well. Such a positive attitude – supportive. I enjoyed it so much.”

“Professor Wisker was down to earth and so engaging and helpful”


“”The facilitation by Heather was amazing. She makes writing enjoyable, and I cannot thank her enough. Certainly one of the best courses I have been on, and that is in large part due to Heather.”


“”The presenter was really good at presenting her tips and study journey. It demonstrated that persistence pays off so long as you don’t give up. Very laid-back and casual too, which removed any sense of pressure, if any.”


“There was nothing I disliked.  I really have nothing bad to say about the workshop.”


“”Prof Wellington’s style was excellent and he was extremely approachable. This made it very easy to ask questions. He was informative and also reassuring. I really appreciated his approach to the topic and it is very helpful to speak with someone so experienced as an examiner.”



“I liked how the audience were from diverse fields, and even then the materials and the presentation were beneficial for everyone. The Q/A session was practical oriented and it was as informative as the main session.”




Are the events recorded?

Most events are recorded, and a copy of the recording (and slides) will be sent to you a day or so after the event (check the spam folder, just in case). 

We send the recording and slides to all ticket-holders, even if you don’t attend the session in real time. 

That way, if you’re in a time-zone that makes it hard to attend in real-time, you’ll still have a chance to learn. Simply grab your ticket, and look out for the recording a day or so after the event
