Maureen T
by Maureen completed this course, spending 3 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
This was an excellent course. Ioved how interactive it was, with discussions on the forums, plus practical completion of tasks (commenting on Concepts, theory and practice). The other students were amazing. Very supportive and many were great resources in themselves. Super tutors, too. Very well designed course.

I completed the course in a short time, as I found it engaging and enjoyable.

I had completed a Diploma in Anthropology, prior to this course,so it was a joy to do a similar course again.

I didn't update to take all the exams, but my an is to upgrade and continue with the tests to get my certificate.

Very user friendly, interesting graphics, course materials, videos etc.

I hope they can introduce similar modules from this course.

Future learn is a very professional and accessible platform. 5 stars all around
