We really have an excellent learning environment: as students we think for ourselves, we learn from each other, we assist one another. In our study we come from all over the world, so we learn from seeing everyone’s
different potential, lifestyles, and attitudes.

Appau Williams Miller, a Master student of Land Administration at ITC, has high aspirations for his future. ‘Right now I am studying how to protect people’s rights to use land, in order to ensure land stability and food security to eventually eradicate poverty,’ explains Miller, the 26 year old student from Ghana. ‘Once I graduate, I hope to get a PhD in real estate investment and finance. Ultimately I plan to combine my expertise in these two fields to help my country develop its land sector.’ Miller chose ITC Faculty after a friend and alumni of the institution recommended it to him. ‘I realized as soon as I arrived that he was right about the high standard of education. We really have an excellent learning environment: as students we think for ourselves, we learn from each other, we assist one another. In our study we come from all over the world, so we learn from seeing everyone’s different potential, lifestyles, and attitudes.’ A life of science is not enough to occupy Miller, who also wishes to try his hand at politics. ‘I am currently the president of the ITC Study Association Board. In this committee I handle issues that arise and work towards creating events that connect students. I took this position because I have ambitions to one day become a politician.’
