"My decision to move to Scotland to study for my MSc Human Rights and Diplomacy degree was one of the best things that ever happened to me. The course has set me up with confidence for my career and opened a window of opportunities for my career path."

My favourite part was the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) workshop week where we had tutors from the United Nations (UN) take us through the Architecture of Human Rights Institutions within the UN and I was selected for an Internship placement with the UN.

My lecturers are very supportive and passionate about their subjects. They go all out to make sure that every member of our small and interactive class is being carried along. I have had the opportunity of learning and connecting with so many people from different continents and cultures and I am thankful for this experience.
