“I’ve found the course fascinating and think that it will give me lots of opportunities for further study and to progress in my career. I’ve really enjoyed the Chemistry side of the course, particularly dealing with molecular formulas and equations. After the course I’m progressing to university to continue studying in this field and focus on euro chemistry. My longer term goal is to complete Masters and Phd.”
