Student\'s Comment

I am very pleased and impressed with the way that Warnborough College recently handled my submission. This included acknowledgement of receipt of my answers, finding a specialist to answer a specific subject enquiry, and a tutor to mark the work in the temporary absence of Katie. All three were both professional and helpful, contributing to my enjoyment and acquisition of interesting, useful knowledge from the Plant Breeding course. M Quigley, UK.
