Student Perspective

Despite the current political situation in Yemen students continue to choose the Yemen College of Middle Eastern Studies as their preferred study abroad destination. Luca Nevola, a PhD candidate from Italy, has had a long history of living and studying in both the cities and rural areas of Yemen. Before arriving in July, Luca had expected to find a Yemen much different from the one he has come to know. During a brief interview Luca was asked how the picture which media outlets have depicted differs from the reality of daily life here in Sana’a.

  2. Thanks so much for posting this! I’m planning to study in Sana’a and in recent months there have been so many negative stories about the security situation that I was beginning to despair. It’s nice to hear an alternate view. I’ll certainly remain cautious, but now I have some hope again. Looking forward to your next blog post.
