Words from Our Graduates

A few years ago I was looking for a postgraduate course in autism and after comparing a couple of options I decided to go for this one and I’m glad I did. It required a lot of self-studies and it was definitely challenging, but all the modules were constructed so well both in terms of structure and content and made it possible for me to follow. I cannot stress enough that the tutors had real expertise in their fields and were really willing to help when we struggled. Having completed the course now I realise that it gave me solid knowledge in autism and I want to know more. Choosing this course was one of the few good decisions I have made in my life.
