Dr Andrew Thomas Park Lecturer and BASc(GHD) Placement Coordinator The Capstone is more than the placement alone – it is designed to make students think critically about the work they are doing, and how it relates to global health and development challenges in a broader sense. Students are also pushed to improve their communication skills by providing timely updates and a presentation to their peers at the end of their placement. This year we have students working in organisations such as UNICEF, UNDP, IFRC, and a host of NGOs in Asia Pacific, Central Africa, Central Europe, and North America. In addition to gaining valuable professional experiences, these students will take away rich memories of exploring new places and cultures. This is what the placement is all about! 07 Bachelor of Arts and Sciences in Global Health and Development
