Student review
The structure and sequence of the course at Western is designed to increase in difficulty with each year. As such, this allows students skills, knowledge, maturity and confidence to shift and grow with the course. The course structure takes into consideration that not everyone will adapt to university life and content, allowing students to adapt at their own pace. My experience of studying the course has been of great achievement. In addition to the course, Western has been extremely supportive and opened doors to my career so early on into my degree. I look forward to what more Western and the course will offer in the near future.
