Student Testimonials


I joined Spectrum for the Bridging programme ahead of my BSc. It gave me a beneficial outline of the field that I am interested in and gave me an overview of what I will be learning for the upcoming 4 years. Thanks to this, I stepped into the first year of the degree with confidence. Also, I had the opportunity to get to know my batch mates better and I became a part of the Spectrum family early!
