Programme Testimonials

“UNAC’s IDDIP’s emphasis on global citizenship and promoting & educating Canadians for a more just and equitable world has been an inspiring theme running throughout my placement here and is certainly reflected in Geneva; it has enriched both my professional as well as personal learning adventures and will continue to be a driving force in my future endeavours.
