“It's been great, I loved every single moment if it! And I mean every single moment, right from waking up, being with my roommates, talking, laughing, going to class and learning new things every minute of the class. I loved every single part of it.
“I think it's been even better than what I thought it would be because I've learnt so much about history, economics and politics, all three of them at the same time. I've always loved history and now when I get to learn World War I, World War II and the Cold War and everything - it's been absolutely amazing. And especially the way the instructors teach you - they make history sound so interesting. And it's different from school because in school when you learn history, you just basically learn the facts, dates and the numbers. But when you actually learn it here - they tell you the reasons behind why the leaders made those decisions and why the countries decided to go to war and everything. Getting into the head of politicians and why they make their decisions. It was awesome! Seriously amazing!
They are wonderfully enthusiastic, they are inquisitive, and they are hardworking. Their questions are always keeping me on my toes. And, I think more than anything, I’ve just been amazed by their…maybe I should say intensity. Just because the level of curiosity is so extreme. They are not here just to impress people or to make grades or anything. They just so badly want to learn and understand these things. And it’s been very very exciting to work with them.
I was actually quite amazed at the extent, to which they were able to follow, because I was trying to pitch what I was saying maybe, just a tad beyond their comfort level. And that was not all that different from the comfort level of undergraduate students elsewhere. Prof MK Mathew, Guest Faculty, National Centre for Biological Sciences
