TropEd gives me the opportunity to choose the modules that fit within my professional life and that address my interests. It is a great experience to do this at different universities and to meet so many new people with different backgrounds.

The TropEd network increases my chances to work in humanitarian aid projects and I meet a lot of friends. It also allows me to work and study at the same time.

With TropEd I am able to have more autonomy when choosing what to study. It has given me the opportunity to mould the master course to my specific interests. Metting lecturers and other students from so many countries has been great; it is really a great network.

I chose TropEd since it enables me to do the MIH part-time and combine it with my work as general practitioner. Within the TropEd network it is possible to choose your own modules and shape your master in the direction you are interested in. Through its international network it is possible to meet people with different professional and cultural backgrounds and get to know with other opinions.

TropEd has given me the opportunity of undertaking some of my Masters elective courses in abroad. It has been a unique occasion, not only to enrich my graduate studies but also to connect with other students and professionals from the field.

I chose TropEd because it gives you up to five years to complete the program, so if you have other responsibilities you can manage your time to do all simultaneously. It is very flexible. Additionally, you also get different certificates from the different Institutions where you go and you can build a wider network, which is really important in International Health.
