Your courses have turned me – a desultory and lazy reader – into one more focussed. The excellent tutors and fellow students have opened up to me a world previously unimagined.

I have gained a lot from the weekend. My French has improved considerably; especially my listening skills.

The calibre of the tuition has been outstanding – tutors have combined education with passion for their subjects. I have always felt impelled to go on to further study.

I wanted to write for some time, but I needed help. The creative writing course has provided that help. It has been challenging, stimulating and always a pleasure.
