Register for the Short Trip!
You can finally enlist for the Short Trip! Do you want to have the best week of your life with fellow SPIL’lers in Madrid, write your letter now!
We will be visiting and studying Spanish politics with 40 students from Monday 29th of January until Sunday 4th of February. We will be visiting all kinds of organisations such as ministries, political parties, newspapers and study associations during these exciting and troubling times for Spanish politics. This trip is, next to the formal activities during the day, the ultimate chance for you to meet other students and make new friends! The combination of politics and gezelligheid is a combination that will certainly lead to ‘golden times’! The trip will be 200 euros, transport, residence AND amazing meetings included.
Through years of experience, we know that these kinds of trips are very popular and therefore we have decided to select on the basis of a motivational letter. In here you can let us know why you of all people should be visiting Madrid with the SPIL. The letter will be made anonymous and will be read by someone working for the Institute for Political Science, an old commissioner of Foreign Affairs and the current commissioner of Foreign Affairs.
The letter will be judged mainly by these four criteria:
· Personal motivation for going on a SPIL-trip.
· Your motivation to go to Madrid.
· An outline on the Spanish political situation.
· A suggestion for an original new part of our programme.
I would like to ask you to put these four points in a letter of up to two pages (no more). You can hand your letter in on the following moments:
SPIL-hok Leiden: monday 6th, tuesday 7th and wednesday 8th november from 10.00 to 15.00.
SPIL-hok The Hague: monday 6th of november from 14.00 to 15.00, tuesday 7th of november from 12.00 to 16.00 and Wednesday from 13.00 to 15.00.
See you in Madrid!
