Education for Transformation

It was perfect! Throughout the past month, I've had a chance to learn about a range of different topics related to education and Northern Ireland. Other than the fantastic classes, there were many field trips that provided some first-hand experience and opportunities to discuss with principals, students and politicians alike. Expect to learn about the history and conflicts of Northern Ireland, their educational system, current research and much more! Also, be ready to meet incredible classmates, teachers and staff. I'm really glad to have received Santander's scholarship, which made this whole experience possible. I can't wait to apply what I've learned and hope I can be back to Queen's soon.

Education for Transformation

The Education for Transformation Summer Course at Queen's University Belfast was an incredible experience. I learned about the history of the country, the troubles they had, the division between Catholics and Protestants, how the educational system is, and so many other things. I am really happy that I received a Santander scholarship and had the opportunity to study during 4 weeks about education in Northern Ireland. Now I understand a lot more about this divided society, and can compare it with my country. Thank you very much for this opportunity. I hope to have the chance to come back and keep my studies.

What would you improve about this program?
I believe it would be better to have more discussion panels with students, teachers and principals.
