Here is Margarita talking about her experience of AA, and what it has done for her and her future career.

" AA is a fantastic course that I would fully recommend to future Master’s students! I have been particularly impressed with the way the course navigates through all the career advice that a postgraduate student should be aware of. For example, the emphasis and support given on Networking. Networking is term that frightens me as I’m ridiculously bad at it! But AA gives some excellent tips that I had never heard of before and wish I had known sooner! Moreover, the online course is extremely easy to navigate and has been a great source of information to refer back to time and time again!"
