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. 

a_day_at_ie_life_01

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.

a_day_at_ie_life_02

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.

a_day_at_ie_life_03

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.

a_day_at_ie_life_04

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.

a_day_at_ie_life_05

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.

a_day_at_ie_life_06

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.

a_day_at_ie_life_07

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.

a_day_at_ie_life_08

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.

a_day_at_ie_life_09

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.

a_day_at_ie_life_10

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.

Studying abroad during pandemic, key to personal and professional development, according to IE University international mobility research

The report evaluates public attitudes in the UK, Spain, France and the US, towards international travel during the pandemic. Outside of students home countries, Spain and the UK are the preferred countries to study.

International students from the US, UK, France and Spain confirm their interest in completing their education in other countries during the pandemic. This is one of the main conclusions from the IE University Mobility Report, which the university presented today. The report also analyses the travel plans of citizens over the age of 18 this summer. IE University Mobility Research evaluated the opinions of 4,000 people, surveyed between 13 to 16 July 2021.

A year and a half on from the outbreak of Covid-19, the findings suggest the students eagerness to study abroad during pandemic, with around half of the students surveyed (25% of the total sample) considering studying abroad, with the UK and Spain as the top foreign destinations. Students consider that the experience of studying abroad will benefit them in the future, improving their employability. The main reasons highlighted were the positive impact of immersing oneself and learning a new culture, a new language, and making new friends. These results highlight that, in addition to the growing interest in remote learning methodologies, students value the opportunity of studying abroad with peers from different nationalities to enrich their learning experience.
