Fourah Bay College
For our 2017 Summer School in Freetown, we have partnered with Fourah Bay College. During two weeks in July, we will be teaching 100 university students in Sierra Leone. Courses will include an introduction to Community Health, taught by Yanoh who is also a lecturer at New York Institute of Technology; Charles, a lecturer at our partner university Richmond University London will be teaching Global Finance and Entrepreneurship; and Joanne from the London School of Economics will be leading a course in International Politics: History, Geography and Interaction.
African Rural University
We are excited to go to African Rural University in Uganda, the first all-women’s university in Africa! In August, we are sending three highly-qualified and enthusiastic educators to offer a two-week Summer School to this extraordinary institution.
Students will be joined by Philippa, from the London School of Economics, who will be teaching Civil Society, Social Groups and Communities. Ena from the University of St Andrews is teaching Global Politics, and Till, a weathered entrepreneur and graduate of the Design School IED in Barcelona will be teaching Design Thinking.
Our first summer school in Asia will take place late August at Srinakharinwirot University in Bangkok, Thailand. This is our first expansion outside of Africa and we are looking forward to exploring new educational opportunities with our newest partner!
Sabrina will be bringing over 17 years of Model United Nations (MUN) experience to the university when she goes to teach a course in public speaking and debate using MUN simulations.
