Straight from the students
"All of my courses here are hands-on with real clients and not just based on theory and textbooks; you get really good exposure to the industry. This type of experience will help me in my future since I want to work in promotions, events, marketing and event planning."

"I chose Kwantlen because of the faculty that's here. It's not just an academic setting; these people have had many years of experience. They've been hands-on in the field and they come to me with all of that experience, both as instructors and as mentors and as hands-on experience in the lab and also in a clinical setting. It's very exciting!"
