"As a music student I've made friends with first, second, and third years, and even some honours students, which has given me the opportunity to ask questions about the degree and gain knowledge from their experience. I love music humour â from teachers and students.
The music staff have been absolutely incredible - they're flexible, understanding, and above all experts in their field! I'm always coming away with fantastic new knowledge that I can apply straight away."
