"

I studied Business Management on the Oxbridge Online Research Programme. I am a very shy person and I thought that I would have a problem communicating with my tutor, but as soon as we started our first lesson all my nerves went away and I started talking normally as if I was talking to a friend!

I found the course really useful to better understand what business is. Now that I have tried it out I would love to continue studying it.
