I was recently lucky enough to complete a St Andrew's College problem solving course. The course absolutely exceeded my expectations. Not only did I learn to view problems through a more holistic lens (ethical, legal, economic and psychological), I learnt to apply these perspectives to problems of varying magnitudes and subject areas.

I found that the course covered problem solving with both incredible depth and breadth. I’m now able to use these skills in my everyday life; whether its helping me find my own ethical perspective on a political topic, or assessing business strategies and policies.

I particularly enjoyed how this course balanced collaborative thinking to solve seemingly impossible global challenges, with individual problem solving, which allowed me to focus on problems in one particular area of interest.
