More students than ever for 2018!
We are really enjoying hosting our 2018 students, who are currently staying in Bogota with us. The diverse range of their academic disciplines and nationalities is a testament to Colombia’s international status and reputation. This year we have welcomed MPH students from New York, Florida, and London, and Politics students from Boston, Orange County, Cardiff, Leicester and Bristol, amongst others.
We have British, American, Venezuelan, French, Spanish, Australian, Pakistani, Swedish and Colombian nationals taking part in the course, but the prize for the furthest travelled goes to our New Zealander who has trekked over 7,500 miles to study in Colombia with Red Tree Study!
The courses started last week with a welcome reception held at the British Embassy in Bogota, and hosted by the British Ambassador to Colombia, Peter Tibber. Students had the opportunity to speak to him about the country’s upcoming election, the UK’s role in the peace negotiations, and the impact of the conflict on healthcare provision in the country.
Our Peacebuilding and Public Health students are now approaching the end of week two of their courses, and have already had a packed schedule which has even included watching a new President of Colombia elected! We have also welcomed our new Film Internship arrivals this week and are excited to show them all that Colombia’s rapidly developing industry has to offer.
We are sure that they’ll find the rest of their time in Colombia as enjoyable, busy, and rewarding as the first two!
