Written on February 13, 2012 by Andrew Herrin in Diary of a MIR Student, Master in International Relations (MIR)

Most of the students in the program went to Salamanca this weekend; however, I chose to stay in Madrid and get some work done so that when the weather improves next month, I will have the free time to travel and do things in the outdoors.

I want to take the time to state an opinion of mine in this post: there is much to like about this program, such as the economic focus, the shorter program duration, the practicality and comprehensiveness and flexibility of the program, and so forth; but, the best part about this program is the diversity it brings. We have students from around the world in this program; and just by speaking to and spending time with my classmates, I learn more than I ever could in a classroom or at any other university. From politics, sport, and hobbies, to relationships, food, and language, I learn more from my classmates each day – and particularly, more practical things — than I did in four years in undergrad. It´s an irreplaceable and invaluable experience and knowledge accumulation that will be remembered for the remainder of our lives…

I’m totally agreed on your comments, Andrew! You have to add one more thing, though! We finally make you to have a Facebook account… That’s definitely worthy to mention!
