StephenMason"The experience and point of views shared by other students was a highlight, as was the majority of our lecturers, the content was amazing – but the best thing was the program design. It allowed for deep digestion of the content, enabled critical thinking to flourish (rather than rote regurgitation), and thankfully allowed the freedom to relate the material to real world problems and interests that were close to my heart." – The Duke of Edinburgh Victoria Executive Officer Stephen Mason
