Arthur Galamba wins UNESCO internship

26 October 2012 |

Doctoral student Arthur Galamba from Brazil has been accepted for an Internship at UNESCO in Geneva.

Arthur, who is working on a historical study of Romulo de Carvalho, a Portuguese science educator and poet is delighted. He told supervisors Palmira Fontes da Costa, Jim Donnelly and Jim Ryder:

"This is a rare and great opportunity in my career. This is a very competitive internship and certainly will help me with my aims in work for inter-governmental partnership in education, particularly between Portugal and Brasil. I will attend meetings at the "Palais des Nations", and will learn how UNESCO works in order to promote and facilitate the implementation and development of good educational practices within developing countries."

Despite the additional workload he now faces, Arthur’s priority is completing his PhD successfully, which he says should happen by June 2013.
