This Week's Piece of Advice

As we start the new academic year together, remember that there will be moments when we feel really pleased when we see how much we are progressing. But there will also be moments when things seem a little difficult and confusing. These times are an integral part of the learning process, too, so don't give up; you'll get there, you'll see!
