Practical Experience

As a student, it is paramount that you get sufficient practical experience with different people to apply your knowledge, learn new skills and build your practice competence. One of the founding motivations for the Clinical College being created was due to feedback from Employers and Employee’s wishing they had more practical experience in applying theoretical concepts outside a few online role-plays.


As part of your studies at the Clinical College, you will be provided with ample practical experience to apply your theoretical understanding in a safe and relaxed environment. This will allow you to learn your strengths and develop the areas you want to enhance in the face-to-face classes.
