"During my time on the UFP I have met a lot of people that I consider as good friends. The teachers are the best. They are very helpful and hard working people and they always explain things in a way I can understand. I was particularly impressed with my Economics tutor. As per my university choices I haven't made up my mind yet between the University of Bath and Cass business school. Hopefully I will make the right decision by the end of the year."
