“It definitely brings a feeling of motion” - and other experiences from international students.
My name is Viviane and I come from France. I’ve been in Christian education for 30 years. I was encouraged by the leaders at my school to follow the master’s at DCU. It provides a good foundation for the Christian worldview. I have grown to know my worldview better by formulating it. I had a very good experience on campus. Studying online does require a lot of discipline. The peer coaches are essential, since direct contact with the teachers is rare. But it’s a good alternative and pushes us to be more proactive in improving our knowledge: we are not just fed. I’m now more involved with the staff and students in my home school, because I try to help them understand my process. Besides, I need their help in many ways (such as questionnaires, interviews, and experiments). I think they like it. It definitely brings a feeling of motion. Now the challenge is to get this motion going in the right direction and do it in synergy with the school I work in.”
