Thankfully, le ville chaleur has cooled down really quickly, and the temperature was very soon reinstated. As with any other experiences, last weeks of the internship were times of pressure and rush. But in very positive manner! I felt pressured to explore the city as much as possible to make sure I’m not missing out on cool experiences that Paris can provide. And therefore, I … Continue reading Adieu Paris!
I can feel the cool breeze coming through my balcony window as I write this blog post so perhaps, Paris is no longer la ville chaleur it has been for the past week. But when I look back at my time in Paris since the last blog post, all I can remember is the struggle to fight the heat that most Parisiens were not prepared … Continue reading La ville lumière devient la ville chaleur
As I read my latest internship blog post to prepare for this post, I was shocked to learn that so much had happened in three weeks! In last post, it had been a week since I arrived in Paris and now, it’s been a month since I’ve started my internship here. I have so much to share so let’s jump right into the business without … Continue reading La vie à Paris poursuivit…
It is weird to come back to this section of the blog when I have already published my first internship post… but I did promise you poster symposium, policy brief and all the other end of year updates so here I am! In all honesty, I have really enjoyed writing for the admissions blog, and I honestly feel so fortunate to have had this opportunity. … Continue reading All Good Things Come to an End
Oui, une semaine passée à Paris. It’s hard to believe! Mostly because for me, the transition from finishing spring semester in Philly to starting my summer internship was very quick, it feels like I was working on final papers only a few days ago (which is kind of true) but I have already worked at my internship site for a full week. And at the … Continue reading Incroyable – Seulement Une Semaine à Paris?
We are aware that the CIES updates are long overdue but as the saying goes — better late than never! CIES is an acronym of Comparative and International Education Society. The Society hosts annual conferences, and every year, IEDP cohorts participate in the conference in various ways. In this series, we will provide different perspectives of and experiences at CIES 2019. Today we have Sydney … Continue reading CIES 2019: Lessons Learned from a Conference Novice!

No title could more accurately describe where I am. I’ve been an awful blogger, leaving our dearest audience up in the air for a good couple weeks since CIES. Looking at it from a different perspective, that in and of itself shows what the life of IEDPers looks like towards the end of the second semester (not trying to justify myself here! no… probably not, … Continue reading Yeah, it was a lot… but I’m back!
Forewarning: No photos for this post! Couldn’t find any visually enticing materials that could be relevant to this topic… yet! Definitely more coming in the future once we actually start our internship! I’ve had a several opportunities (Masters preview day, email exchanges, virtual info session, etc.) to share why I chose IEDP as opposed to other similar programs in different institutions, and each time, my … Continue reading Cream of the Crop (in my opinion): International Internship and its Process
Excuse me for the delayed post this week — in fact, the very topic I’m going to talk about in this blog is exactly the reason behind the delay. (I know. Excuses, excuses…) This word has been triggering many of our cohort mates but let’s take a deep breath, and exhale, and take a stab at it: so what is Policy Brief? Let’s start with … Continue reading Demystifying Policy Brief
