Student Profile


The independence we had to write a personally selected exam topic was wonderful. It gave me time to think, and think better, so as to write a good research paper. The content and approach in the qualitative research methodology were great, useful both in and outside academia. Thematically, I have gained so much international exposure from the Global Studies and Development specialisation. As I work now, developing my own human capital development NGO, these experiences are still very, very useful.
