AccountingGraduate Diploma (GDip)
What is it about your grad program that enables you to thrive?
The professors 100% -- they are so passionate about the program, and want their students to do well and have everything they need to do so. I would not have made it through without their support.
Why did you come to Western for your graduate degree?
The professors in the program, wanting to stay in London, completed my undergraduate degree at Western.
Where’s your favourite place on campus to work?
The program runs in the summer so anywhere outside on campus – there are so many places to get vitamin D while studying.
