The added value of the Master Degree in Migration Studies, promoted by GRITIM-UPF, is the diversity of trajectories that are intermingled in the classroom, giving the program a differential approach based on learning through interaction and exchange of experiences.

As the Director of the Master’s program usually highlights, studying in a diverse environment provokes both advanced learning and greater productivity, while allowing students to enhance their cultural understanding through differences. In other words, a sum-positive game. This classroom approach reflects that a diversity-oriented group is a long-standing priority for GRITIM-UPF.

The 14th edition of the Master in Migration Studies consists of 20 enrolled students (out of 80 preregistrations and 64 accepted for evaluation). In this edition, students come from 16 different countries (Argentina, Belgium, Colombia, France, Gambia, Germany, Japan, Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, Niger, Philippines, Slovakia, Spain, United Kingdom). 

In addition, international students count for 95% of the class. Regarding the gender composition of the course, 65% are female whereas 35% are male.
