Participant comments from Global Issues course autumn 2007 Highly recommend this course to all people of all backgrounds. Stimulates and expands knowledge of global development and related issues. Keep up this great work!! Excellent! Up to Suas’ high standards. Very very good. Well-informed lectures. I came in knowing precisely nothing about causes and sometimes cases of conflict, but left feeling more knowledgeable. The facilitator was really knowledgeable and really interesting Best run session so far – facilitator extremely well informed and engaging - entire class was involved in discussion Really enjoyable, educational and think would definitely impact my views and change in a positive way Brilliant, very engaging! Thanks Really enjoyed it! Very engaging opened my eyes. The facilitator was very brilliant, informative and clear. Very well delivered – Informative, interesting, comfortable. Very informative and got me thinking about different ways I can participate to help and change things Such courses can help me to be a better person and help me with future work Its great to keep these issues fresh in your mind I definitely think I have benefited from the presentations and also from the other people in the group Topics I did not think I would find interesting, I did and issues were more complex than I thought I found it both depressing and uplifting. I learnt a lot and want to learn more I love that at least once a week I am forced to really think and possibly challenge beliefs I hold Excellent presentation which left me much better informed and aware of my responsibility as a global consumer Found it to be a totally enlightening experience Definitely opens your eyes to concerns across the world that I wouldn’t have given much thought to and encouraged me to do further study The course has broadened my vision on such issues, therefore I’d be willing to gain a more in-depth insight This course has given me a good taste and I’d like to learn more. Would like to work in development sector. I am now much more aware of global issues and I am definitely interested in getting involved with a programme in Africa. Most sessions were very interesting and I really enjoyed the course Extremely informative. It linked up all the issues and put everything in perspective. It raised many important issues. I felt I learnt a lot. I find it insightful to hear information on a topic and discuss and debate with peers It was well organised and the speakers were very qualified to speak on the topics.
