The program fosters each student’s individual interest through its mentoring program. I only had to mention once that I was interested in global health and there was a meeting organised with someone at WHO within a few days. The week before I had lunch and a conversation with the former UNHCR Representative of my country. It has been an incredible, tailor-made experience so far and one I highly recommend to anyone wanting to pursue a career in the international domain."
