Occupational Health & Safety Certificate student

The pro­gram gave me new insight into how inter­con­nect­ed every­thing is in the munic­i­pal world, how it all works together.

Local Authority Administration (NACLAA I) Advanced Certificate student

The infor­ma­tion I gath­ered from the cours­es was very rel­e­vant to my job. I was also able to estab­lish con­tacts with oth­er stu­dents that are employed in the same sector.

Applied Land Use Plan­ning Certificate student

It was great to be able to get a uni­ver­si­ty edu­ca­tion on my own time. I appre­ci­at­ed the feed­back I received and enjoyed see­ing the var­i­ous styles of oth­er stu­dent art­works. Loved the instruc­tors. Loved becom­ing absorbed in the work.
