Graduates say

What I like the most inthe University Certificate in Special Study is that I learn a lot about new up-to-date approaches to teaching in various counties. I like that the course is delivered in an interactive way where the tutor stimulates our inquiry and self-reflection and skillfully guides us to a specific destination known only to her, in the beginning. It is like an adventurous journey!
