Following the previous success of our Relax & Revise programme in London, we this year decided to host it again, but in a brand new location - Cambridge. In October we teamed up with Cambridge Melchior College to offer students a relaxed, unique alternative to host family stay during their half terms and Easter holidays.
Bright World Marketing department members, Charlotte and Louis recently made the trip to Cambridge Melchior College during the October half term to check in on the students and to gather feedback. It is safe to say that the feedback they received was hugely positive, across all aspects of the course at CMC, who were handpicked for their experience and impeccable safety standards, as well as the ideal residential campus they can offer International students.
Amongst some of the things students rated most highly were the dining options. They seemed very impressed with the food on offer, and enjoyed the mixture of cuisines which the onsite chef specifically incorporated into his menu (though many also seemed to enjoy popping to the shop for an afternoon snack!) They also loved the accommodation, and said they felt incredibly relaxed and at home in the beautiful landscaped gardens of Willingham House. Here’s a small selection of some of the feedback we received…
