I have noticed with great satisfaction that AIU is truly and actively working on advancing the philosophy of education based on self-learning and self-reliance as a universal value of knowledge, which is scientific and creative. I am also highly moved by the approach of AIU to create a favorable environment where humanity is connected on global stage by common value of knowledge for common cause and purpose. I have witnessed thus that the whole strategic approach of the AIU`S Academic program is geared towards that end. Learning is creating knowledge. AIU proves on its program that knowledge becomes relevant only when it contributes to the wellbeing and life of humanity, which I learnt much and found it very practical.
I have spent a very happy and academically constructive and productive time with the AIU for almost three years of learning and researching on a PH.D program in International Relations. I have been indeed fortunate enough to learn much from the intensive, but systematic methodology of learning. It has enabled me to realize the universality of knowledge and its value to humanity. The whole program has provided me a new spirit of academic strength based on self-motivated and self-empowered skill of learning. In this connection, my experience with AIU has not only been a learning place of such the highest level of academic program but also a place which has so much impacted on the scope of my knowledge of the world to understand it in a holistic and scientific manner. I am sure this would help me to better play a positive role at different levels in creating a favorable environment for human development.
I am deeply grateful for the wonderful work of AIU with its entire staff and management and would kindly express my high appreciation. My special thanks also go to my advisors and tutors for their encouragement, advice and guidance in my program. They have made me feel at home and self-confident. I just encourage AIU to pursue the excellent job they are doing in promoting a practical learning program internationally in the services of human development.
