What students are saying...

Jade Spencer,
Short-term mobility student
Humanitarian Design Summit India 2017

 quotation marks image…I know I went for formal educational reasons, but I learned so much more about people. This invisible barrier that we put between us and others, its nothing. Everyone wants the same thing, to be happy, healthy and loved. I guess the most important thing I learned was to step outside the barriers we set for ourselves and just experience the moment, make connections.
