            Writtle a unique learning experience for me how about you?

            As I, you will look back on your time at Writtle, realising when talking to others, also when competing for work, you have a distinct advantage because of the in depth and historical success stories of others gone before you. The environment now is twenty times improved on what I always remember was incredibly special, warm and friendly with the highest regard to the learning you need. The design centre is so far advanced I don't recognise it but wish I was there to be apart of the experience you now have before you.
