I’m not easily deterred. I applied for the undergrad Professional Specialization Certificate in Public Policy and Governance program at the University of Victoria. I was accepted! Yippee.
Once this is completed, I could reapply for the Masters having proven myself, or I could consider the diploma programs in the School of Public Administration.
I’m not so rich and so I’m counting on the scholarships offered through work. Worst case, it takes me 2 years to do the certificate instead of the one I could do. Either way, I am finally feeding the brain again.
