Student review
The course was incredibly interesting and shaped my world view in a way I would never have considered. We learned about international politics from a vast number of angles and it taught me to be more considerate of the world I am in and how I want to exist in it. There were some practical elements that were very useful, such as learning to write policy proposals and reports.
Response from Deakin University
Thanks so much for taking the time to provide a review. We're so glad that you got a lot of out of the course. We believe that the best learning happens when you combine both theory and practical experience into a course!
