    Virginia Commonwealth University | A big jump in student success

    Mike’l Simms grew up 10 minutes from the VCU campus, with dreams of playing basketball for the Rams, and being the first college graduate in his family. Every night, I just imagined I was playing for VCU. Eventually, my dream came true. (cheering). The sociology major received a call from VCU’s head coach, Mike Rhoades. It was an overwhelming feeling that I got the call from Coach Rhoades, saying that he wants me to play for his program. Simms helped the Rams to the NCAA tournament last season. But his biggest accomplishment will happen in May. I’ll be a college graduate. I’ll be the first in my family, which is…

    PhD Study at Birmingham Law School

    So my name is Eric Ngang and I come from Cameroon. I am in the Birmingham Law School and I am doing a PhD in Law and my field is environmental law and specifically I’m looking at climate change lawmaking. And my research question is about how does the lawmaking process enhance or not the incorporation of local knowledge and practices in that process? One of the most important things I’ve had as a student of the University of Birmingham, is being able to sit on the driver’s seat of my PhD, and having all the necessary support from my supervisors. And so they’ve they’ve given me that support throughout…

    SMU Changemakers: Nazhath Faheema, Social Harmony Advocate and Founder of hash.peace

    (Wind sounds) I met a lady from Sri Lanka who was a refugee and went to another country. She was saying that it is because there wasn’t initiatives like what they have in Singapore that a lot of countries after attacks or war there’s a mistrust between the communities. When a person who has gone through that kind of conflict environment tells you that initiatives that we do in Singapore at every level is important, then it just makes you want to do more. (Music) Hi, my name is Nazhath Faheema I’m the founder of hash.peace which is an activist movement from Singapore that catalyses conversations about social harmony. In…

    Co-operative Contracts in the Oil and Gas Industry – Online short course

    The online course on Collaborative Contracts in the Oil and Gas sector is a very, very important cornerstone of the commercial side of our LLM offering. The Oil and Gas Industry is obviously a very competitive industry, as one would expect of any high value industry, but it’s also at least in some sense a collaborative industry, and the main reason why that is so is because of risk. There is a risk that what looks like a very promising project can just fall at the first hurdle; you drill the hole and there’s nothing there. The tendency that the industry has is to spread risk. Individual companies spread risk…
