I greatly enjoyed my time in Barcelona and found the academic opportunities (both teaching and research as outlined above) very rewarding.

Some impressions of the UPF exchange

I am satisfied with my experience with the UPF teaching exchange. The preparation was wellorganized and I was informed well in advance about the type of course I would be teaching and I was put in contact with my ‘mentor’—Luis Recuenco—from the political science department at UPF. He was helpful with any additional questions I had about the number of students, the structure of the course, etc.—details that I needed to prepare a suitable lecture. I was also sent a schedule of my teaching and other activities for the exchange week… Overall, the teaching exchange went well and I was able to add to my teaching experience at the same time as making some research contacts. I think the Max Weber Programme should definitely have this exchange again next year!
