My group is very supportive and encouraging and there’s a real sense of ‘we’re all in it together’. We all work full time, we all have home lives, and we’re all new to studying at this level at this age. Our tutor, Margaret, is fantastic. She’s extremely supportive and patient with us and understands how we feel about studying later in life, with busy careers and lives and she encourages and reassures us.
