Q: What are the key differences between University and the Professional Year Program?

Q: Do you think the Professional Year Program has given you an advantage over other job seekers and university graduates in Australia?

A: Yes - because in PYP you will learn lots of valuable skills related to job seeking and this gives you advantage over the other graduates. I would say SMIPA is a “Bridge” to becoming an outstanding graduate.
