The programme offers a wide perceptive of knowledge to me in a closed community. Not only has it given lights to my Christian faith, but also I have a huge amount of fun in applying all the knowledge I have come across. Studying on the programme has made me differently in facing various research questions, as well as paradoxes and daily issues. I have experienced a joyful and pleasurable moment here in finding eternal values amid lapsing literals, and felt like a privilege to have such an opportunity of doing so.
