favourite part of the program
My favourite part of the program is how it incorporates different disciplines of biological sciences as well as the hands-on experience you gain through the lab-based courses. Along with that, the staff and students are very friendly and helpful, which drives an individual to work hard and constantly feel motivated.
I aspire to become a genetic counsellor in the future as I find the science behind the rise of various genetic disorders very fascinating. As well, I really care about making connections with others and creating life-long relationships, which I believe is a critical part of this profession. This interest of mine drove me to minor in psychology and it has given me the chance to learn so much within my undergraduate experience.
