"The course was very interesting, comprehensive and provided a lot of information regarding armed conflicts (international or national) and the measures to reduce the suffering of the victims. I really appreciated. However many questions of the final exam were confusing for me. Some questions may have two different good answers, but you are not able to combine them. It will be more interesting if the questions were stated clearly. Thank you"
