Overall, I enjoyed the course and found it informative on the issues up until the period it was created. However, here are a few things I wish I had known before signing up, which are likely mentioned by others as well:
There's a lack of perspectives and differing point of views on the issues.
Tests were quite easy and seemed to only focus on the most basic elements of what was taught that week.
Translations can be poor, or missing, at times.
Repetition: the amount of content to go through could easily be reduced by half, if not more.
And finally - this course is out of date and does not touch on any developments after 2016. It is great for providing information up until 2016, but if you want to learn about more recent events you will not find those details here.

The course content was good, seemed curated and simplified for all learners, it's easily accessible to most. However, the assessment could be more meaningful and challenging to actually make learners think critically about the issue of global migration. The course could benefit from implementing more interactive tools other than multiple choice assessments based on mere memory and a forum. Overall, I would recommend! Just make sure you are an autonomous learner and create your own tasks to make the learning meaningful.

Certainly, this is an interesting historical course on global aspects of international migration. unfortunately it doesnt take into account any changes in migration policy and dynamics post Arab spring nor 2015 migratory crisis. Globally and regionally the landscape of international migration change dramatically with total policy shift in Europe and new Global compacts on migration and asylum. Hence the course is outdated and last 2-3 weeks of course shall be changed

extremely helpful and relevant to what I am currently pursuing. but the only suggestion would be that, given the fact that I am a student who has not learnt French, it would be helpful if the audio was in english too so that I can understand the authenticity and complexity of the issue better.

Outdated but interesting nonetheless.

The course is translated from French to English. Unfortunately the translation is extremely poor. There are 5 lines sentences with no full stop.... Besides the poor translation, the content is very repetitive, lacks references, and not updated. The text is more like mumbling rather than an academic text. I wouldn't recommend this course as it's a waste of money and time. Instead I recommend the course provider to improve the quality of the content they offer.
