Advice for Current International Institute IDP Students

It is important to expose oneself to the widest range of opinions on a given issue. Keep yourself informed of what's going on in the world from different news sources (especially foreign such as l'Avui, Le Monde Diplomatique, Al-Jazeera, etc.) Observe the world around you, as it will help you understand other social dynamics.
