Activity three: promote your course in 90 seconds

We asked some of our current students at the University of York to promote their course in 90 seconds. All of the videos feature one of our students trying to sell a different course. Did anyone convince you to study their course?

All information is correct at the time of recording and is specific to the student, but could be subject to change.
