I am a first-year graduate student, and I just finished my first semester in the ICE program. I come from China and I finished my studies from primary school to university in China, but the past semester has given me a completely different experience.
For international students, the ICE program is challenging but exciting. Here, I have greater freedom to choose my research direction and get more resources to support my study. In the ICE program, I had the opportunity to get the guidance of many excellent professors, to study the research on education in different countries, and to study with students from all over the world.
The ICE program gives me the opportunity to learn and express, helps me broaden my knowledge, break through my limitations and rethink my original ideas.
In this process, I learnt about the educational context on the other side of the world, and I also learnt how to evaluate the education of my country from the perspective of the world. This gives me a more objective perspective, and I also can share my experience to change the others’ prejudice.
The ICE program gives me the opportunity to learn and express, helps me broaden my knowledge, break through my limitations and rethink my original ideas. This is the best learning opportunity for students who love education and care about international education.
