Bridge between the classroom and the career
As the higher education systems are confronted with changes and challenges on different levels, the MARIHE programme integrates the notion of interdisciplinarity already in the admission phase. MARIHE classroom acts as a mini model of the diverse academic fields inside the university and in the society. The diversity in BA backgrounds is enriching the learning experience of the students from the day one. Therefore after the 2nd semester the students are prepared to put in use their knowledge acquired through formal, non formal and informal learning with MARIHE internship.
Jin Tao, originally from China, and Nowreen Yasmin, originally from Bangladesh, graduated from MARIHE in the summer of 2016. They report on their own experience being examples of the interdisciplinary bridges.Jin Tao graduated from Ecole Centrale de Pékin (Sino-French Engineer School) of Beihang University (Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics) in 2013. She holds a bachelor degree in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics. Nowreen Yasmin, worked within the Educational Research unit of BRAC in Bangladesh. She has a bachelor and master degree in the field of Education and Education Research from the University of Dhaka.
How did they combine their diverse BA backgrounds with MARIHE study, is presented on the blog of their MARIHE internship host - Center for Higher Education Policy Studies (CHEPS) from Netherlands.
