Student testimonies

"I could have gotten my Masters Degree in the USA, but I decided to study overseas to experience different ideas and people. It was one of the best decisions I've made. The IR classes at Deakin are truly a global affair. I spent my last semester as an intern in Zagreb, Croatia, focusing on the issue of human trafficking and observing the working of an NGO as part of my coursework." - Jodie, student from the USA
