The course was extremely useful for me in terms of technical knowledge and also practical tips. The course instructors were excellent and made every effort to accomodate me as the only native English speaker. The simulations were interesting and I personally found the exercises very useful for later in the animal model. Hospitality was excellent and facilities/ food were good. Only criticism was the short time allocated on the love animal model on the last day. It would have been good to have the whole day spent putting into practice what we had learnt in 4 days.
