Studying a Master’s Degree in Politics and International Relations

♪ [music] ♪ My name is Laura. I’m from
Valencia, Spain, and I’m studying an MA in International Relations
at Middlesex University. In Spain, I studied translation, and
now, I wanted to continue my studies in International Relations, as it gives
me the skills and the knowledge required to work in an
international organization. I decided to come to Middlesex because
of its great reputation, and because it’s one of the most cosmopolitan and
innovative universities in this country. But also, when I saw the campus
and all the facilities we have here, it’s very modern and has
everything a student can need, but I think that the facility all students
love and value most is the library. It’s open 24 hours, and we’ve got
free printing, free laptop loan, and lots of support. In Spain, we do a lot of theory, and
here, we do theory, but also practice. We’re always doing debates, and we
feel like we are working in a real international organization. Also, because
of the diversity we have in the class. My favorite thing about the UK is the
diversity of cultures. I have friends from Colombia, Slovenia, France,
and other parts of the UK. I’m always learning so
much about other cultures. The best thing of that is that I never
feel as an outsider with them, because I know that everyone
is in the same situation as me. When I leave university, I would like to
work in some international organization such as the UN, and contribute,
in some way, to the process of making this world
a better place to live. ♪ [music] ♪
