What do students think about the course?

"I really enjoyed the closeness and openness of the lecturers and that most of them also have practical experiences with the subject. I find it hard to be convinced by lecturers who teach based on theories only without any real life scenarios but in this course the lecturers talked about their experiences and achievements in countries all over the world which was really interesting"
 

"I thought it was great to have so many lecturers from so many different backgrounds because I felt like everyone was teaching about something they knew a lot about and were passionate about"
 

"I loved the diversity of lecturers and how each one brought a unique aspect to their presentation due to their background and specialty!"
