Our Master Student Community
The added value of the Master's Degree in Migration Studies, promoted by GRITIM-UPF, is the diversity of trajectories intermingled in the classroom, giving the program a differential approach based on learning through interaction and exchange of experiences.
As frequently emphasised by the Master's program Director, learning within a diverse setting stimulates heightened academic progress and increased efficiency, all while allowing students to enrich their cultural awareness by celebrating distinctions. In simpler terms, it's a win-win situation. This pedagogical approach underscores GRITIM-UPF's enduring commitment to fostering a diverse and inclusive learning community.
The 15th edition of the Master's program in Migration Studies currently enrols 23 students selected from 115 pre-registrants. Students hail from 12 countries in this cohort, including Ecuador, Italy, Spain, Mexico, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, France, North America, Colombia, Belgium, and Hungary.
In addition, international students account for 95% of the class. Regarding the gender composition of the course, 65% are female, whereas 35% are male. Furthermore, the enrolled students represent a diverse and rich plurality of disciplines (Sociology, International Development and Cooperation, International Relations, Global Studies, Political Sciences, Social Sciences, Business Entrepreneurship, Arts, Law, Education, Public Administration, and Social Work).
Among our students, many have previous work experience in the field of migration, which, in addition to international exchange, enriches the professional and future perspectives among our students. We also enjoy having students from prestigious universities such as K.U. Leuven, the Université Paris Cité, The University of Rotterdam, the University of Warwick, the University of Amsterdam, the Autonomous University of Madrid and Universidad Anáhuac in Mexico, among others. There are also two scholarships from the Carolina Foundation.
