Hi! I’m Isla and I study Global Development at the University of York. I wanted to let you know what it’s like to study this degree at York. One of my favourite things about the degree is that it has a small cohort, this means we all know each other very well and it can make trips and group work super fun. Going on trips can be a really exciting part of the university experience, but we also learn useful things to implement within our work. Saltaire is a small village, and it is the first trip of the global development cohort. In my blog I’m going to talk about my experience of the trip as well as it’s wider impact on our degree and what offer holders can look forward to when studying global development at York.
