Steven Sengstock - Master of Education (Special Education)

Education

Torrens University Australia

"Torrens presented itself as an institution 100% committed to higher learning that could be applied directly and meaningfully in the workplace. Now that I’m a year into my Master course, I haven’t been disappointed. Almost every single reading and conversation has generated a new and exciting initiative for me to launch at work. My favorite part of studying is how much work its designers and facilitators have done to make it apply directly to my professional context."

Steven Sengstock | Master of Education (Special Education)

Education

"It's been so incredible to watch children change before your eyes. When you hear a child say that they’re not interested in school to then later say they’re really excited about learning is such a rewarding experience. Knowing that this is exactly where I'm meant to be in life, making a difference in the world, is the most rewarding experience one could ask for."

Catherine Conradie | Master of Education (Reading & Literacy)
