Global Studies December 2021

We would like to invite students aged 14-17 from all around the world to take part in our second ever Global Studies Symposium on 16 - 21 December .

Over the course of the last eighteen months, members of the Felsted Global Education Department have written, designed and executed five online initiatives including two Summer Schools and a short course. The Symposium format was first developed in April 2021, and our aim is to deliver an informative and valuable selection of lessons, seminars and keynote presentations, all within the context of Global Studies.

This is a free initiative that includes five lessons taught by Daniel Emmerson, Director of Global Education, and Kirsty Fraser, Academic Manager, at Felsted School. Both Daniel and Kirsty have developed a deep enthusiasm for online teaching and learning, and they hope that the December Symposium will provide a truly remarkable experience for students from a range of cultural backgrounds.

Over 2,000 students from 40 countries have taken part in Felsted Online initiatives to date. Make sure that you register before December 10th in order to secure a place on what will likely be an exceptional experience.

The course had some of the best teachers I have ever encountered. I'm so lucky to be their student for the third time. They put so much effort into this symposium and everything was amazing. I'm so grateful for them.

Apart from being interactive, fun and helpful, the course introduced me to a lot of areas in global studies in a deeply engaging way. The various activities introduced as part of the symposium were especially interesting!

Daniel and Kirsty were two of the most brilliant and respectful teachers I have ever been taught by. They made the lessons seem like a completely safe place to share your opinion, because it was always taken into consideration and appreciated. The teachers taught in an inspiring way and were able to transmit their passion to students.

The teachers were very “up-to-date” in issues regarding people of our age, trends, and interests, and I think that makes it really easy to connect with them, and make lessons so appealing. They were also very warm and enthusiastic.

In just five days, I have learnt a huge amount, explored so many different perspectives and completely changed the way I see the world. I will be forever grateful.
