Addis Ababa University (AAU)



I visited the Institute of Education Research at Addis Ababa University (AAU) for 2 months. My time at IER allowed me to access resources not otherwise available to me in London, as well as to consult with academics and policymakers working on related topics.Being a visiting student at IER has enabled me to better situate my research within national education debates and the policy context.

The visit exceeded my expectations. The opportunity to meet with and learn from new colleagues with similar research interests has been an invaluable resource for my research. In addition, IER were able to provide essential support and permissions for my qualitative fieldwork.
