Emily Dickinson, Graduate (2022), Pre-Health Sciences Pathway to Certificates and Diplomas
This program has given me a whole new level of confidence and understanding that I’m able to apply to everything in real life. The fact that there are reserved spots in our chosen programs for those with a high average gives you the extra drive to keep going when the work gets tough. The teachers want us to succeed, and they consistently show us that they will support us in any way they can.

Olivia Anderson, Pre-Health Sciences Pathway to Certificates and Diplomas and then Practical Nursing
I loved my time at Fleming and I felt I really made the most of it. I was quite engaged as a student, which is a testament to the environment on campus," said Olivia. "The community there is something special to be a part of, and it made me want to get involved and give back. Olivia Anderson, Graduate (2015) Pre-Health Pathway to Certificates and Diplomas

Brady Wills, Graduate (2018), Pre-health Sciences Pathway to Certificates and Diplomas
It was amazing to have a year to get a grasp on things before going into a very challenging program. You do a few courses in Pre-Health that contribute to your Paramedic diploma so you can lessen your workload and focus on the tougher core courses. It prepared me and many of my peers well. I believe I wouldn’t have survived the Paramedic program without Pre-Health. Brady Wills, Graduate (2018), Pre-health Sciences Pathway to Certificates and Diplomas

Jacob Hadley, Graduate (2013), GGeneral Arts and Science - Degree Transfer
Fleming gave me the opportunity to get back into education after a lengthy hiatus… It was a broad course of social sciences and writing techniques, which gave me a good perspective of what I wanted to study after. Most importantly, I learned how to write at a university level, which helped me immensely when it came to essays and research papers at Trent.
