Student Testimonials

‘Hi, I’m Thies and I did the web class last year. For me it was an important step in my process of exploring what I wanted to study. Even though I had very little time during the week because of other school projects, I still managed to finish the web class in a good way. After all the web class confirmed to me that I wanted to study Global Responsibility & Leadership, and here I am!’

- Thies, 1st year GRL student

'Hi, my name is Tabio and I did the web class during my time abroad. It was very nice and doable: although I had little time and finished one assignment late, I could still hand it in and finish the web class successfully. Additionally, I have a good idea now of the broadness of the programme and have a feeling for my own level, thanks to the detailed feedback.'
