Dr. Gerasimos Tsourapas gave a public lecture on the international politics of Middle East migration in Amman, Jordan.
The course was all around excellent. I particularly enjoyed the five-day training programme, opportunity to complete a work placement, and the module diversity. The degree has helped me make a major career change. Following the degree, I am now pursuing a career that I am passionate about in national security.
