A Word from Our Graduates

"We have been placing staff on the Bucks New University BCI Diploma for a number of years now, I attended the very first course. Globally we have standardised on this course for all of my team, regardless of their background, experience or qualification. Every year we have had at least three people attend. This has helped us globally standardise on a methodology and the language used, something that isn’t achieved in the typical one week course. Combined with a progression path within the BCI and the course’s continuous evolution, I believe we will maintain this relationship for many years to come."
