If you wish to effectively approach disability from a human rights perspective, this course is for you. Drawing from expertise and examples at the global and national level, it provides essential knowledge of worldwide standards, practices and challenges.
The course has helped me resolve some of the uncertainties that I’ve had regarding the concept of human rights. Moreover, I’ve had an opportunity to examine different perspectives on disability, coming from participants all over the world. What I would accentuate as especially valuable is the fact that the course provides the participants with interesting literature which encompasses factual information as well as authentic examples of contemporary disability issues. Thank you for the opportunity to be part of such an interesting course. I am looking forward to new courses by EIUC!

The 6 weeks of self-paced learning culminating in a final questionnaire (testing our ability to interpret our newly gained knowledge) have been positively challenging and rewarding. The course material was of exceptional, well audited and internationally sourced content; recommended additional reading was contemporary and relevant; and the course moderator led with passion and professionalism. I am certainly keeping my eyes open for future academic opportunities as relates to Human Rights and the EIUC Global Campus.
Thanks to all of you for your very professional work and for your kind and human approach: it was really a beautiful experience for me (my first on line course and hopefully not the last one). I had the opportunity to increase my knowledge and awareness about disability international rights and to listen to people coming from other countries speaking about it.
