Students' perspectives on the course

“The program excelled all expectations. Our host and lecturers were extremely warm towards us, very intelligible and completely social. My highlight was our trip to the United Nations, Vienna. It was also quite an eye-opener for future career paths. I never considered myself as interested in Human Rights and now I hope to achieve a career in this very area as a result of the program.”

“Studying International Law and Human Rights in Brno in the Czech Republic was amazing in every respect. We were not only taught by some of the most knowledgeable professionals in the field, but also given an incredible cultural experience. Meeting likeminded individuals and making friends from all around Australia and the world was definitely a highlight. The program was very inspirational.”

“The lecturers were fantastic and very well informed! They were very passionate about their topics and made it interesting and fun to learn. The great thing about human rights is that there is plenty to debate, and the lecturers left room for hearty discussion! It didn't matter how much you knew before you came, you walked away with a working knowledge of basic human rights protection.”

“The extra activities were fantastic. These experiences you would not get anywhere else and I feel very privileged to have had them.”
