A day in my IE University life
8:00 – 9:00
I wake up in my apartment in the neighborhood of Malasaña. I head to the kitchen for breakfast. After having breakfast with my flatmates, I take one of the cleanest metros in Europe and head towards IE University.
9:00 – 10:30
Description: Class begins and my professor who is currently working at Google walks into the classroom. The class quiets down and we start. We take a 10-15 minute break as this class is a double session and the professor (and us) need time to recharge.
10:30 – 13:00
Class ends, and I have a team project to work on with people from Nigeria, Lebanon, India, the United States, Egypt and Colombia. We book a study room on campus with a screen since we need to start working on presentation.
13:00 – 15:00
After hours making progress on the presentation, we finally leave to have some food close by campus. There are a lot of great options nearby, but we also have microwaves in the cafeteria in the case we would like to bring our own food.
15:00 – 15:30
Once we finish eating, a few of my friends and I go the on-campus ping pong table and get a quick friendly game in and a cup of coffee before heading to our next class.
15:30 – 16:00
My next online class begins and our professor from the consulting company McKinsey breaks us into groups and goes over what our task will be for the next 30 mins.
16:00 – 17:00
We get started writing out our ideas and someone begins drawing our analysis on a large white sheet that we will use to present. This way of learning is unique and it’s usually the best way for me to remember a lot of information.
17:00 – 19:00
Class ends, and I head over to a club event with the IEU Culture Excursion club, one of the many clubs I am a part of. After the event I stay in one of the many study rooms IEU offers to study for next week’s exam.
19:00 – 20:00
Heading home I decide to stop by my friend’s rugby practice. The sun sets late in the spring and summer and it’s always nice to get some fresh air before getting home.
20:00 – 22:00
I meet up with some friends to go eat some tapas. We eat dinner pretty late in Spain and tonight we decide to go to Mercado de la Paz, to have some sushi and make plans on what to do for the weekend.
22:00 – 00:00
We end the night and I take the metro home. I check my schedule for tomorrow and call my Dad to see how’s he doing. I get ready for bed and read a bit before falling asleep to start the day all over again.

CIVICA gets greenlight from the European Commission: the university alliance continues its expansion
IE University and the SGH Warsaw School of Economics will formally join the leading alliance of European Universities of Social Sciences in October.
CIVICA – The European University of Social Sciences is one of the sixteen European university alliances to receive continued support from the 2022-2027 Erasmus+ programme, as the European Commission announced this week.
After a three-year pilot phase, this achievement sets the stage to establish CIVICA as an integrated deep and fully-fledged European university alliance in the social sciences, now bringing together ten world-renowned higher education institutions across Europe. During this new phase, CIVICA aims to develop a joint vision for 2030 with respect to priorities on education, research, innovation and service to society.
With a total budget of 272 million euros, the European Commission launched the 2022 Erasmus+ European Universities call to facilitate the full roll-out of the European Universities initiative. The CIVICA alliance outlined an ambitious set of actions for the future in a strategic proposal submitted last March.
