All students can attend a 2-day residential session at Brathay in The Lake District at the start of the course.

“The session consisted of fun, challenging tasks, which we performed in groups of 10. I  had not met many on my course prior to the event and it allowed me to get to know so many of my course mates. It was the perfect kick-off to the programme.”
