I enjoy the atmosphere in lectures which strikes the perfect balance. It is a relaxed, friendly, and inclusive environment. But equally it is focused, structured and purposeful. This blend creates a perfect setting for learning, but also for speaking up and contributing to the discussion, in a collaborative team of both students and tutors.
