Autumn semester 2020 has started!
CIH’s Master in Global Health started 13 August. CIH staff worked hard to ensure that all new students received a welcome despite any COVID-19 complications.
Including the 6 medical students, who join the course for a few weeks, 35 students have signed up for the Master’s programme. Of these, 26 come from a country other than Norway – 16 different countries are represented (although many of these students have been living and studying in Norway before coming now to Bergen).
In total, 24 students were present at the opening lectures including 6 students who attended online. The online students hope to join the course as soon as possible in person, but are currently delayed due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.
As the students introduced themselves, we learned that they come from varied backgrounds including pharmacy, nursing, medicine, social anthropology, dentistry, social work, and nutrition, to name a few. The variety is an asset to the course, as students thereby bring different perspectives and learn from one another. These include not only cultural perspectives from different countries, but also those from different academic disciplines.
