Student Feedback

"Although I had a fair knowledge of Bushcraft before, the course has widened my knowledge and also made me look at things from a professional view in Bushcraft.
I enjoyed doing the assignments very much and learnt a lot from them.
My tutor was Katie Freeth.  Everytime I messaged my tutor she always responded back quickly and always answered to help me understand more. I am very pleased with my grades and feedback I got.
Whenever I emailed info@adl they always emailed back politely and promptly especially when passing on my video and picture emails to my tutor.
I loved doing my course and very much want to take another course with ADL!
