Eso has an academic experience been thus far? Well, currently, I am in the masters of urban innovation program, and I'm studying at U F T the Mississauga campus, and this is the first program of its kind at our campus. It's a pretty unique experience, but the reason that I chose this program is because they're amount of political science. Undergrad. I didn't really get the opportunity to learn a lot about cities. Then my last year of undergrad, I took this one course called Urban Politics and basically blew my mind. Like I was found out that I was actually so passionate about learning about cities and I wanted to get more understanding about the topic. Now I get to do that in this Masters program, or I'm learning about how to create livable, sustainable and innovative cities and about economic development for other individuals who might be in a similar stream or similar program. Um, some advice that I could give you is that it really is about the practicality of it all there in political science. I learned a lot about theory, but in this kind of program. You're going to learning amongst other individuals from different disciplines, and it really is a great opportunity because you get to learn as you're working with other students. Secondly, the assignments that you're doing a really practical they're actually teaching you how to do work that you would be doing when you have a future career. Third, there are a lot of opportunities that you're gonna have to meet distinguished professionals, and they're going to be able to tell you about their roles and what they do and, most importantly, how they got there. That's a great way to increase your network, but also learned what steps that you're gonna have to take after you finish your program. So what's the workload like in my current program? I'd have to say that z different because my priorities have shifted. In this program is really about what you're learning. It's about who you're meeting and who their networking with and what skills you're going to take a look. I enjoyed the readings because they're not theory based. You biggest difference between high school and college academics. It's a lot more reading, and it's a lot more. Simon's, um, not only that, but your priorities air changing the ship because you realize that university is to prepare you for a future career. You're more motivated to do the work because you know the benefits of doing so. Or maybe you're planning to continue your studies. Either way that you're going, you're going to have to put in a lot of work. The biggest difference between high school academics and university economics.
