“Enrolling in PACE may assist with gaining some perspective on whether you are in the right field or not. It is a paper where you are taught necessary tools that you may encounter when you venture into your career. In my case, it helped with realising where I would like to be in the future! Being in the workspace and environment clarifies whether you are heading in the right direction.

Personally, PACE fuelled me with more momentum to continue with my degree and aspirations. This paper and internship gave me invaluable experiences which will enrich my academic trajectory and subsequently, my career goals!” – Kavita (PACE395 summer school student)
