Experiences from Global Studies Students
Find out about the experiences four former Global Studies Students made during their studies.
Elias Degruyter (Ghent, Addis Ababa, Vienna; 2018-2020)
Mariama Diallo (Leipzig, Ghent; 2019-2021)
Ross Goodman-Brown (Leipzig, Macquarie, Vienna; 2018-2020)
During my Global Studies track I was fortunate enough to spend time at Leipzig, Macquarie University and the University of Vienna in a particularly formative two years. Through this amalgam I developed a burgeoning interest in religion(s) and its dynamic place within society, therefore I plan to partake in further study and research in this area. The aspect of the course that really sets it apart from my previous academic experience is the support and sense of community you will immediately feel upon enrolment, nowhere is this more evident than in Leipzig.
Xenia Pilipenko (London, Macquarie, Vienna; 2008-2010)
After two amazing years in the Global Studies program, I stayed in Vienna and became involved in human rights and migratory affairs. Now I work for the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) as a Project Manager. Since my graduation, EMGS has continued to be an important part of my life, as I’ve remained involved in the program’s impressive alumni network.
