I applied to this course during the pandemic lockdown as I felt I wanted to do a little bit more with my skills and interests, but also with my life. There's so much depth and so many layers to the course that it just keeps you really interested and fascinated, and I think that for me is what exceeded my expectations.  The lecturers make a big difference as well.
