“I used to work in an office, but I decided that I needed an occupation that gives me more time outdoors, and that’s why I decided to study a BA in Floristry Design with Bishop Burton. The tutors were passionate about their subjects, and were always available to help me with any doubts I had.”

“In my Animal Management and behaviour course, the aspect that I most appreciate is how the teachers always make sure the class has understood previous topics before starting a new one. Also, they tend to prefer group discussions rather than long monologues, which keeps everything more engaging.”
