Check out what our graduates have gone on to do and how studying at Kingston helped them achieve their goals.
Name: Monica Vecchi
Course: Human Rights MA
"My decision to study at Kingston was influenced by several factors. The course content played an important part, as it covered areas that interested me, but the fact that it was taught by practitioners was another big factor.
"The standards on the course were really high, and the amount of work and reading that we had to do was enormous, but it honestly paid off in the end. It made it easier to understand the importance of human rights and made the course even more challenging.
"My placement with World Development Movement was also a really interesting experience. As I came from a business environment, working in a non-governmental organisation (NGO) helped me to understand how an NGO functions.
"Having an MA has helped me a lot. Since graduating I am now working with Amnesty International and can already feel the benefit of the course. I understand the international, national and regional mechanisms of human rights, the importance of a public campaign, the logic behind lobbying and action plans and the importance of the law to protect and defend human rights. I believe the MA Human Rights course is a key for opening doors."
