Yes, provided that you have a good level of spoken and written English. It should also be emphasised that this 2-day course is designed for students and recent graduates.
Our foundation normally works with a maximum group of 15 to 20 people at a time (i.e. students and recent graduates). However, it is worth highlighting that, depending on the demand for the course, we may consider delivering the course concurrently but with separate groups that each have the same limitation on numbers.
Due to the nature of this course/programme, we believe that a smaller group will maximise the overall learning experience. It also allows us to provide enough personal attention to each participant. That said, spaces are generally limited for each intake and we are always searching for the more motivated individuals.
