Past students say...
“It’s brilliant! So much more than a great course…more of a life-shift.”

“An immensely powerful and informative course with exceptional people involved throughout, extremely thorough with a good balance of practical and theoretical learning in a huge range of subjects and skills.”

“An open and relaxed learning environment. I loved it to bits.”

“Just do it!”

“Life changing!”

“The shift course was the most completely inclusive, comprehensive, challenging course I have ever been on, the best thought out and refined course as to the needs of the students, with the most cutting edge, current, diverse and stimulating tutors.”

“This is a fantastic course with fantastic tutors. A curriculum that is both exciting and demanding with visits to inspiring places. Wonderful to be studying with such a group of terrific people. So glad I heard about it – highly recommended!”
