“I learn much better
through real-life application”

The interactive theory/real-life experience has been very helpful in applying the concepts in everyday working environments. For me personally, I learn much better through real-life application. Something that really helped a lot was when the facilitators would preset us with real client problems that they faced in their careers.

“Opportunity to practice theoretical
knowledge directly at work”

Lecturers could establish a quick relationship between a theoretical concept and real-world application and give us insight into their profession. Structure of the course gives the opportunity to practice theoretical knowledge directly at work by providing the freedom to work and study parallelly.
