The University consistently provides high-quality education to us. Their teaching methods encourage us to strive for success and to become an independent, critical and creative thinker. The program that is offered to me provides me an opportunity for real-world experience through field trips and research projects.
Andrea Brander Accommodation Scholarship is what I am availing of. I was given the scholarship after providing a personal statement, financial statement, and a reference to the concerned department.
