Brain Friendly Revision Reviews


'UFA has always for me represented something exciting, vital, subversive. Exciting because UFA people are good people to be around. Vital because it is a growing and learning community. Subversive because it is always ready to challenge received wisdom. The hallmark of the UFA is being open to new ideas and unafraid of change. The most long-lived of movements have grown from the ground up, and this is a singular strength of the UFA. Your growth has been vouchsafed by what you stand for - the compelling power of learning'. Professor John MacBeath, Cambridge University, 'Lets Talk UFA' 2001
