"Through this course, I have learnt how to understand international trends and changes systematically. As my work involves creating short-term international programs for students, I must be aware of the international trends to develop programs which are intended to widen the global vision of our students."

I understand that you are a Product Manager in China (congratulations on your role), can you tell me a little about what you job entails?

I work as a product specialist in the Hailiang Education Group (China). My work involves creating overseas programs for Haiiang students. I mainly create short-term international projects such as study tour programs and cultural exchange programs. 
 

What initially sparked your interest in the course?

What initially sparked my interest in international social change and policy was that I needed a deeper understanding of my own international background. I wanted to learn systematically from an international perspective about the social changes I have experienced while growing up in 5 different countries. 

What did you enjoy most about studying the course?

I extremely enjoyed Dr.Kilkey’s international social change classes. It was inspiring to meet experts from various fields such as population ageing, migration, globalisation and new labour market risks and family change. I especially enjoyed Dr Chau and Professor Walker’s classes on Asia’s welfare and population.

What is the approach of teaching and assessment here?

The approach of teaching and assessment of this course would definitely be “student-oriented with professional support”. This course offers many student-driven classes and assessments which challenged me to think critically. However, whenever I was lost, I always had support which guided me in the right direction.
 

What skills did you feel you gained during your studies?

Through this course, I have learnt how to understand international trends and changes systematically. As my work involves creating short-term international programs for students, I must be aware of the international trends to develop programs which are intended to widen the global vision of our students.
