What our students say

This subject allows you to piece together arguments and also debate topical subjects with people who have completely different opinions. This is something none of my other subjects have to offer. Critical Thinking can be challenging at times because it pushes you to think things through properly which I personally see as a real positive. It makes you see things from a different perspective.
