What have past students said about our online bridging courses?

"Initially, I had been apprehensive about it. But after one or two online classes I adjusted pretty well. The prompts were easy to follow. The interaction with the tutors was still maintained. We had a great time continuing our case practice and ended the course on a high note. This course was an eye-opener for me. I got the best guidance about the exam format, techniques, and my own merits and flaws. I feel more confident about the exam than I did before the course. Thank you to the HEAL family for all the help and support." - Dr. Najeeha Ahmed

"HEAL course was an unforgettable experience! From getting to know people coming from all over the world, to learning something new every day, I didn’t feel the time go! Unfortunately due to the current situation, we had to shift to online classes. But it was a new experience altogether. Needless to say it saved a lot of time on commuting, giving us more time to study. The classes always started on time, distractions were minimal and the best part was, we learned at the comfort of our home. All our questions were clarified then and there. The lectures were great, lecturers were extremely helpful, and I personally felt like it was a win-win situation!" - Dr. Dakshi de Silva
