Success stories

“We learn about philosophers from around the world and we really get into bonds and how relationships form. On top of that, we also go to placements. You can go from a nursery, hospital or school – anywhere that includes children. And you can learn real life skills that support your theory work, so you get the full experience of what you are learning.”
