Really good to get some viva practice a week before the exam. The sessions were very relevant and I thought the format worked well. The MRI lecture was brilliant as well. It is great value for money as well. Would definitely recommend it to others.

We good course and great value for money. Really benefitted from the 1-to-1 viva practice throughout the course. The short, sharp vivas were very useful before the exam and being put on the spot boosted my confidence before the exam. Thank you for organizing.
