Here’s what one recent graduate had to say: “Thank you very much for the chance to take part in Neuro-versity. So much time, thought, planning and effort was put into the course.

“I learnt so much on the course for when I’m ready to move forward in my life.

“I felt fully supported throughout the course and would recommend others to attend.”
