“Great workshop, great fun. I found it very interesting, and it allowed me to shake of the negative stigmas of Uni, like, it’s too pricey for me and what I’m actually going to study for!” Sheheena Meens, 16.
“Great info, great good trainer! I learnt a lot of interesting facts about Uni. I was unsure about Uni because I didn’t know what I was entitled to or the support out there. It’s not all about debt.” Mo Ghailan, 17.
