Milika Sakala - International and Comparative Disability Law and Policy

Milika Sakala

"I first came to NUI Galway in 2012 for the International Disability Summer School. It was my first time to hear about a course on Disability Law and by the end of the Summer School I had made up my mind to one day coming back to study the course. Thanks to the Open Society Foundation scholarship fund, I was able to make my dream a reality. All in all, it has been a rewarding course. The mixed population of international students made me feel at ease as I was initially worried about feeling out of place in a predominantly European environment. I also found the university staff to be quite friendly and supportive. One feature I found useful in my studies are the opportunities available for students to attend seminars facilitated by expert guest speakers in various fields. I can sum up the Irish culture as warmth, cheer and music! Galway is a kind, cultured and diverse."
