Organization/Company: The University of Canterbury was founded in 1873, founded as Canterbury College, and at the time was only the second university of New Zealand.

A young graduate, Helen Connon, became the first woman of the then British Empire to receive honors. For most of its first 100 years the University was located in the center of Christchurch (now the Arts Center). In 1975 the University of Canterbury moved to a spacious, 76-hectare site built in the suburb of Ilam, 7 km from the old city site, including a central library complex, classrooms, laboratories and staff quarters surrounded by playgrounds, woods and the famous gardens of Ilam. Il 1 ° gennaio 2007, il vicino Christchurch College of Education, il secondo più antico istituto di formazione per insegnanti in Nuova Zelanda, si fuse con l'Università e divenne il sesto college della University of Canterbury. Today the university has 5 colleges: Arts, Health Education and Human Development, Engineering, Science and Business and Law. Canterbury offers undergraduate and postgraduate courses in over 70 subjects, from accounting to zoology.

Carlotta Ceruti, Italy, completed BHMS/RGU MSc Degree

“Before enrolling I spent almost one year checking the beast option among different schools in Switzerland and I finally choose the BHMS in Luzern”, says Carlotta. “Today, almost one year after my graduation, I can still affirm to be sincerely satisfied with my choice. BHMS is, first of all, a multi-cultural school. Students come from various Countries and this gives the opportunity to learn different way of thinking, languages, cultures, religions etc. BHMS teaches its students, not only the regular subjects present in the study plan but also the way how to move in a professional environment. Moreover, the skilled teachers who present the classes have the ability to inspire and share a well-determined knowledge with the students. Finally, the demanding projects and exams that need to be assessed, lead students to do their best and exceed their own expectations. For all these reasons and much more, I am proud to have been a BHMS’s student.  After my graduation from the Msc program, I easily found a job as Receptionist in Switzerland. Despite my interest in this Country, I decided to temporarily move in Gran Canary where I am currently working as Assistant in the Sales department. It is unnecessary to say that the BHMS School gave me the opportunity to obtain the knowledge that nowadays is required in the Business reality”.

 

Bernice Voo completed the BHMS/CityU MBA Degree in 2013 and presently works as a Project Manager at SWISSCARE, Bern, Switzerland. SWISSCARE is a global insurance solutions for expatriates, travelers and students. «My study years at BHMS has been unique and full of exposure», says Bernice. «Being part of multi-cultural student body, I had to learn and adapt to different traits and habits. And this I think is my surviving secret in a Swiss multinational company like SWISSCARE.»

 

Apekshit Shah completed the BHMS/CityU MBA Degree in 2014 and presently works as a Restaurant Manager at the Emirates Palace, Abu Dhabi. «My previous experience across Europe, Asia, and North America is accelerating my career development in the Middle East», says Apekshit. «This is combined with the right education at BHMS, self-motivation, passion and hard work.»

 

Luca Paradisi completed BHMS/Culinary Arts

"My experience in BHMS was great: the structure of the study plan fits perfectly with my way of studying. The theoretical lessons, having four weeks of lessons and one of exams, in my opinion, helped the studying process because it didn’t let cumulate all the theory helping to focalize on any point of the program. The practical lessons were structured very well, the students weren’t to many so it was easy to follow the lesson and the teacher was always available to answer at the questions. My internship experience was amazing because I was in a 5 star hotel with two young but very well prepared chefs, both with a long experience in Michelin star restaurants, I learned a lot because even if I was a student at the first experience they let me work, after a couple of months, during the service at the garde manger and than at the pasta section. During the last six months I learned a lot: about how to live in the kitchen and how to cook."

Organisation: Alkarama is a Geneva-based non-governmental human rights organisation established in 2004 to assist all those in the Arab world subjected to or at risk of extrajudicial execution, enforced disappearance, torture, and arbitrary detention. Acting as a bridge between individual victims and international human rights mechanisms, Alkarama works towards an Arab world where all individuals live in freedom and dignity, and are protected by the rule of law. Alkarama brings pro bono legal assistance to victims of the most serious human rights violations, without any discrimination. The organisation focuses its efforts on violations of the right to life, human dignity, physical integrity and freedoms such as extrajudicial executions, enforced disappearances, torture, and arbitrary detention. Using the international human rights mechanisms and working closely with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR ), Alkarama documents individual cases of violations through direct contact with the victims, their families or lawyers, and submits complaints on their behalf to the United Nations (UN) Special Procedures and Treaty Bodies, asking them to intervene with the State in question to put an end to these violations. Alkarama also brings media attention to the cases and situations it covers, helping victims to have their voices heard and shedding light on the human rights situation of a country, through press releases as well as public reports and analyses published in various media outlets. In order to reach a broader audience, Alkarama increasingly relies on social media, particularly Twitter and Facebook.
