    GRADUATION PROJECT POLICY REVIEW

    & FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    Which pathway should I choose?

    Consider the purpose of your project to determine which pathway to

    choose.

    For example:

    • If your goal is to learn piano, then the appropriate pathway is Self- Development, because you are bettering yourself by learning this skill.

    • If you have previously trained in piano and want to challenge yourself by performing a piano concerto with a local symphony, then your pathway would

    be The Arts.
