MA International Relations
This is my testimonial of my experience with MIUC as a graduate student pursuing a Master’s Degree in International Relations from Fall 2020 through Spring 2021:
I have had an amazing and incredible experience with MIUC. From the onset, the experience
with the MIUC Recruiting Team was professional, courteous, informative, and supportive. My
recruiter remained so incredibly supportive during my entire time with MIUC, that made my
school life much easier. The administrative staff was also incredibly supportive and very
responsive to all my inquiries and administrative needs.
The professors are extremely knowledgeable, experienced, prepared, enthusiastic, and
concerned for their students. As MIUC does not have a large student population, the student to
teacher ratio is approximately 6 to 1. This translates to a more personal experience, as your
professors can be more involved with each student. You will always get timely and attentive
feedback, as the professors are sincerely interested in their student’s scholastic progress and
As a “blended” student, I had the opportunity to do much of my academic work online before
coming to Marbella. The online experience was so accommodating of different time zones and
schedules! Students had the option to live-stream participate or watch and listen to recorded
sessions at a later date. All required reading was made available on MIUC’s, user friendly,
online site. Additional reading and research opportunities were also made available through the
MIUC online library and online research resources.
MIUC was a great option for me, as the academic readings complemented with classroom
instruction and teacher feedback allowed me to improve as a student, while achieving all
scholastic and personal objectives. I gained much knowledge, experience, and personal growth
during this exciting journey to obtain a Master’s Degree!
MIUC is truly an international school of international students and international staff
embedded within the international community of Marbella. My journey and dream were fulfilled
when I finally arrived to Marbella! Marbella is such a beautiful city enriched with history,
culture, and diversity. Being a student at MIUC gives you the best of both worlds: an incredible
education opportunity with amazing international staff and an unforgettable experience to be part of Marbella’s international community!
I highly encourage any prospective students to make MIUC their choice for this incredible
and amazing experience!
