My focus is on women’s studies, especially the economic empowerment of women, so I would like to work with women in developing countries and help them to empower and be more active economically, socially and eventually politically. We’ve looked at human rights, gender, food security and agriculture; all from a development point-of-view. So we are analysing development from all these perspectives which has been very interesting.
Ilaria Giustacchini, Italy - Politics of Global Development
I needed some international experience and I chose to study Principles of Microeconomics because I needed it to get into my master's degree … The teacher was very professional and very good at explaining all the different concepts of microeconomics … She always managed to explain something hard in an easy manner: that was very nice!
Peter Sølling Sørensen, Denmark - Principles of Microeconomics
We’ve been talking about how films were introduced; we look at the history, different genres, we analyse movies ... looking at editing and so on. It’s very interesting! I’ve learned so much and am impressed with how far they got with technology. I study finance and minor in management so this has been very different! What do I like most? The fact that we watch a lot of movies! It’s nothing like studying finance… [laughs]
Merna Dimitri, Sudan - Action! An Introduction to Film Studies
I knew I wanted to do public health because I’m thinking of doing it for my master’s and I liked that UCL had an introductory course which is open to everyone, not just medical students. But it’s still very comprehensive. After every class I can answer more questions in the next. Also, now I feel I’ll know more from a public health point-of-view, and will be more familiar with certain terms when I read about them. We have students from Singapore, the US, Hong Kong Canada, and Holland. Sharing examples from each other’s countries has been a very good experience.
Wonseop Suh, South Korea - Population and Public Health
The most interesting part about the module was that it wasn't just sitting there and listening to your professor, instead it was very interactive. For example, if there was a lecture on negotiation, we gained hands-on experience acting out real-world examples of negotiations that have taken place among renowned organisations. This allowed us to better understand the process and it was really engaing and fun.
Siddhi Pal, India - Business Psychology
The most interesting thing about the course was making a presentation about a case from the Supreme Court of England. This was really interesting because we had to learn how to write a memorandum. I had to think like an English lawyer and there were a lot of cases to look at. It was a totally different way of thinking from French law so it gave me a lot of insight on how to think for all cases. I learned how to look for the precedent and for me it was really good because it allowed me to improve my searching skills and also about the motivation behind the verdicts in those cases.
Tristan Beylot, France - International Commercial Litigation
The module is about psycholinguistics ... about how people process language in the brain, how we encode speech and decode what we hear. I’ve never learned about psychology nor linguistics so it was all new for me. It’s very interdisciplinary and very different from studying my usual subject, Biology. What has also been really cool has been the students. In Korea, students are not very active in the class but here students are very enthusiastic and participate in the lessons!
Shin Won, South Korea - Language and the Mind
I study Nursing so this module is totally relevant especially from the healthcare policy side of things. I like the fact it’s mostly international students here so we get to listen and hear about different aspects of public health in each of their home countries and how their governments approach it, versus how it is done in the UK. And of course the excursions were very fun like when we went out to hear about English public health issues in years gone by. Wwe learned about how alcoholism was a big problem in the Victorian era but then we ended the trip in one of oldest pubs in London, The Old Cheshire! [laughs]
