I am glad I picked Reuben College for postgraduate study. The College’s communication is second to none - although I was a non-resident, part time student, I never felt I was missing out on anything as I was kept well informed. 

What I love most about Reuben College is its wonderfully diverse and international make-up. The pastoral care and support available at the College is also unrivalled.  

 I am very proud to be a Reubenite!
