    Pros

    Enjoyed the working environment, interesting lectures and seminars and some really inspirational teachers. I also worked with some inspiring students.

    Cons

    Not enough hours, although this was dependant on the students and what they required so in a sense could not be helped.

    Advice to Management

    It may be wise to attempt to try and source some more funding from somewhere in order to expand the support available, although you may disagree.
