Register for Buenos Aires
You can finally register for the Long Trip! Do you want to have the best week of your life with fellow SPIL-members in Buenos Aires, write your letter now!
We will be visiting and studying Argentinian politics with 40 students from Wednesday 27th of June until Wednesday 11th of July. We will be visiting all kinds of organisations such as ministries, political parties, newspapers and study associations.
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 cost €700 (as a maximum), 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 Buenos Aires 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 Buenos Aires.
· An outline on the Argentinean political situation.
· A suggestion for an original new part of our program.
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 these moments:
SPIL-office in The Hague and Leiden: Monday 12th, Tuesday 13th and Wednesday 14th of February between 10 am and 3 pm.
If you have any questions about this trip, the expenses or your letter, please do not hesitate to contact us via
- or visit us in the SPIL-office.
See you in Buenos Aires!
