FAQs

What will I learn?

GP&R is a unique course because it doesn’t need you to learn facts or remember things, but instead, it tests your ability to think critically and conduct independent research. The interactive modules we have developed will help you in developing these skills and give you useful thinking routines which you can use for the GP&R assignments, exams and beyond.
