Madeleine - 2018

Studying International Law and Human Rights in Brno provided me with the perfect opportunity to study crucial topics in public international law and politics. Not only were the classes engaging and thought-provoking, but the course also showed how leading world organisations, NGOs and institutions protect and enforce human rights in the field. The visits and experience with the UNCHR Office and European Roma Rights Centre in Budapest were incredibly rewarding, but some of the most memorable parts of the course were studying and exploring in snow-covered Brno. For students that have a passion for international law and European human rights issues, this course is a fantastic chance to combine study, travel and professional experience in Central Europe.
