Kønsstudier på KU

Studerend på kønsstudier KUDarryl, 28 år.

What degree programme are you affiliated with?

"I am with social sciences. But I am studying 3 courses - sociology, marginalization and gender studies. And some Danish anthropological research".

Why did you choose this?

"Because of my field. I am researching in health and social policies, specialising on the LGBT angle. So I came to Denmark to do Gender Studies, because we do not have that opportunity in Scotland. I am studying at Glasgow University".

Tell us about what's good or exciting about Gender Studies

"Firstly, that we did not have to study this specilised subject back home. And I think it is nice to study in a city such as Copenhagen, Denmark, where it is so egalitarian and the attitude is forward-looking gender-wise" 

Anything you should be aware of before you start this?

"The housing, oh my god. And finances as well, it is one thing I really disagree with. You really need to have money to be able to do this. To do the move"

What is your dream career?

"Actually, I have had a taster of it. I am already working in the field, so I am doing some research on ways to infoluence policy. In Scotland Í have been working with an LGBT youth organisation, that is a non-governmental. So when I am done, I would like to get paid for doing this instead of just volunteering for free".
