Recent Feedback

"In general, alls three tutors were friendly and enthusiastic. It was clear the huge experience they have on all aspects of GLP studies, including and specially from the practical side. That helps a loT to better understand the implications, (real) problems and (real) solutions."
"Highly appreciated feedback on digital slide archiving, nice presentations, very friendly, helpful answers"
"We had very helpful discussions throughout the whole course, both in the workshops but also after each presentation. all tutors mentioned their point of view. this makes clear that there is not always one correct answer to a GLP question, but brings me little more into a better thinking and understanding about GLP and its principles."
