LIGC courses are filling up fast for 2017 and we are looking forward to welcoming our students who are coming from as far apart as Brazil and Russia.
You can now apply for our 2017 courses and you now have a choice of two weeks - 25th June – 1st July or 23rd July - 29th July
The 2016 students were asked to write a little on What Went Well and Even Better If. These are the transcriptions of their answers - and what we are going to change for 2017 as a result.
We have assembled an amazing group of teachers covering the different aspects of this course. Course Leaders Kim Polgreen and Debbe Reilly will lead the students through the entire course, bringing in expertise from the rest of the team at the right moments. Our ECI experts will join us for the key parts of the discussion. If you would like to read more about them see below.
Although I am unsure yet of what I would like my future to look like, I am very interested in pursuing medicine as I love helping the people around me. Having spent a week in South Africa volunteering and a week of work experience in a hospital near us, I have learnt a lot about the small things you can do to improve a persons life.
We have an exciting programme lined up for our LIGC students next week. They will be working at the Environmental Change Institute at the University of Oxford looking at Climate Change, Water Security and Food Security in the context of being a decision maker in their lives and careers.
The students who are coming on LIGC have the following questions to consider before they come. We will be discussing their thoughts arising from these questions on day one of this course.
We are very excited that we have all our ECI experts lined up. We are dipping into three key areas of the work done at the ECI: Climate, food and water. You can read more about our experts below. Our students will be learning about the work done at the ECI, delving into the issues, preparing interview questions for our experts, and then summarising what they have learned in their own communication project. Still a couple of places remaining for any latecomers.
We are very excited to welcome you to St. Antony’s College and the Environmental Change Institute on the 26th July. Keep an eye on this blog where we will be posting some interesting information to think about before you arrive. See you soon.
