Lewis - 2019

I decided to complete a short term experience to improve my employability prospects.

It was really interesting to be able to study conflict in a conflict society. I feel that this made the course content more academically engaging. Personally, it was a massive achievement to live by myself for a month in a foreign country.

Maddison - 2018

The program looked really interesting and I had never studied Irish politics before so I was excited for a new perspective on approaching state conflicts.

I found it incredibly relevant to my International Relations major and my favourite aspect of it was the alternative perspective the course offered.
