With student groups much smaller than usual universities, you are certainly more than just a number. This makes lectures much more interactive and means that each one of us are able to get the attention we need. We are encouraged to take part in discussions, enhancing our learning and developing with confidence as a group. As individuals, we are able to connect more closely with our peers and become more comfortable when it comes to sharing ideas and perspectives. These connections lead to lasting friendships which will turn into collegaues in the future making it the best of both worlds.
I have found that due to the smaller student groups our lecturers have been able to spend more time to individualize their feedback, ensuring that each one of us understands the material, gets the help we need and be able to reach our own potential.
