Distinct Features

The distinct advantage of the broad-based line is that students can take courses in various disciplines in their first year, gaining first-hand experience of different subject areas, and seeking advice from professors before deciding on a Major course of study. This ensures that they will pursue a programme that best suits their interests and capabilities.
