This is the best organised course I have been on Mehrooz did such an amazing job teaching this course that I feel nothing can be improved on. Awesome course! I will definitely recommend this course to fellow students. I found the Honours program engaging and tangibly beneficial to my career This has been my favourite of the courses I have done so far, the lecturers were great and very interested in helping the students. I found the mix of lectures, field work and pracs to be the best way to learn.
