Past Students

Four UNSW students completed this program last year and had an AMAZING time! One of last year’s students said “Some of the introductory courses didn’t seem overly relevant to our degrees. Of course, we were wrong! Science and Engineering disciplines are all related to each other, even if they do not seem to be. It was really eye opening, realizing how the different disciplines overlap. I’d highly recommend this! It was a wonderful experience and the people are just lovely!”
