    The course was of an exceptionally high standard throughout. Too many positives to list completely. Very fast paced and a very busy study / coursework / teaching practise schedule, but was fully expected and sold to me that way. The course tutors couldn\'t have been more supportive and encouraging. Our group of students on the whole rallied together when someone was finding a lesson or assignment difficult, much more so than any previous further or higher education course I have completed before. The student volunteers we taught were so much fun and willing to participate positively. Oxford is a magical place to study, buses everywhere, pubs n cafes too. My only criticism is, although the tutors helped us with where to find work, and ideas about where to teach and conditions in different parts of the world, there wasn\'t much in the way of professional contacts or direct links with schools overseas. The resources are excellent at the school but when I studied last year, the number of student teachers made it difficult to gain access to a computer at the school at some times of the day.
