In Human Security, we value the opinions of our students in and outside of the classroom and are proud of the student’s sense of ownership of the programme. There is a vibrant study environment and the students are deeply involved in the development of the programme and arrange various events. This is done via the Student Committee which meets with the programme coordinator on a monthly basis to talk about new initiatives.
Our students come from a variety of different academic and personal backgrounds and we use their unique experiences and skills to learn from one another. Group work and group projects are a vital part of the coursework and students are assigned a study group to work with during the semester.
