February 6th, 2015, Sweden
Elisabeth, you are currently doing your master at Stockholm University and will be staying with IAS Head Office during 4 months to work with our program Inclusive Education. Please tell us a bit about yourself.
– I’m 24 years old and I have lived in Sweden for almost two years, I’m originally from Munich, Germany. I have a Bachelor Degree from Germany where I studied European Business and Language Studies and I´m currently doing my Master at Stockholm University in International and Comparative Education. I wanted to gain experience in something that relates to my studies; therefore I chose to come to IAS.
What will you be doing at IAS?
– I will mainly provide support to IAS Program Department on Inclusive Education matters but I will also help wherever I’m needed. One of my courses at university was ‘Educational Planning’, which really relates to the work IAS does in the field of Inclusive and Special needs education. As an “outsider” I hope I will be able to look at IAS work from a different perspective and provide valuable information.
Are you also interested in doing an internship or to work voluntarily with us? Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will tell you more!
