Past Student Comments:
Very rich in content, provides much resources for many years of meaningful effective reporting.
It is good to have a facilitator who thinks like a journalist.
The course exposed me to different issues in the energy sector in general. I had the opportunity to relate what I saw and gathered information for the Nigerian Energy Sector.
It was well organised and I think the whole objective of my participation was achieved.
Graeme Addison is a thorough teacher, motivator, organiser and intellectual of high standing. He... has been able to blend diverse this course. He does what he does with passion, interest and panache.
