Our students' experience

Imma Pagès
Class of 2014
Trainer and Transition coach. Expert in the third age.

When you sign up for a postgraduate course you always have a lot of expectations. You want it to answer a lot of questions, open up paths that maybe
you didn't know about, and offer you new perspectives. And you want to know what the top professionals think and be able to compare these opinions. You
also want to learn new things, useful things, things that help you move forward and construct your project in a professional manner. I found all of this
in the 2nd edition of the Postgraduate Course in the Promotion of Active Aging Projects.


In addition, I have noticed the dedication and involvement of the academic director, who keeps in touch with the students during term time. I am very
grateful to the initiative which means that today I am able to be part of an alumni network which thinks about active aging in a really active and beneficial
way.

On this postgraduate course we have been able to learn from a wide range of teaching staff who have shared their incredible knowledge on the theme of active
aging with us. On top of this, interaction with our classmates, as they come from different areas, has further enriched our training. I would also like
to highlight the enormous dedication of the director, Paulina Ballbè.

The Postgraduate Course on Active & Healthy Ageing Project Management responds to the need to train professionals in a new and ever more crucial biopsychosocial
field.
Personally, doing this course has expanded my professional horizons and has given me both theoretical and practical knowledge and tools that
are innovative, up-to-date and applicable to reality. I would like to emphasize the level of the teaching staff as well as the networking, updating
and ongoing support offered to the students by the course director, providing a well-appreciated added value.To be able to share experiences, projects
and knowledge with both colleagues and teachers from diverse professional backgrounds makes the course an enriching and stimulating experience.
