TMP Aspire – Reviews

“I came to the day having no idea how the application process worked, what my son should expect and what skills he should look to develop, and left with a clear understanding of it all. The speakers did a really job of covering a variety of areas and giving plenty of food for thought.”

Bristol Aspire Attendee, February 2017

“The feedback from the students was incredibly positive. It certainly helped to focus minds and clarify decisions on potential medical applications for a number of our students.”

Bristol Aspire Attendee (Teacher), February 2017
