“It was the extra benefits such as
 winning a scholarship, entrance into
 The Academy and the convenient
 location of the campus that attracted
 me to study here. My advice is to
 think about what you’d really love to
 study and the field you potentially
 want work in. Select a course that
 will get you into that field.”

“In my teaching, the students need
 to see the relevance of what they
 experience at university, so I make
 sure that everything I do is going to
 be useful to their future careers. I
 give my students assessments that
 are real and relevant, and replicate
 the jobs of an actual teacher, such
 as assessing students and creating
 interesting maths tasks.”
