What people are saying
The practical experience has been extremely valuable in getting me where I am today. This opportunity gave me valuable insight into which direction to take my career.
I picked APM as I had previously studied at a big university for a year and felt a bit lost as there are so many people. It felt much more personal at APM.
I picked APM because you get your degree quickly and with more experience and connections that you would anywhere else.
