First degree: Political Sciences, IEP d'Aix-en-Provence, France.
As a student in comparative politics in France, and focusing maninly on Latin American issues, I was constantly studying Oxford scholars' publications. The very high intellectual quality of the LAC's research staff, combined with Oxford's reputation encouraged me to apply for the MSc in Latin American Studies. After a couple of months here, I decided that one year was not enough and transferred to the two-years MPhil course. I don't think there are many places where a student can get as much as you would here at Oxford. Bibliographical resources are unlimited, scholars are outstanding, and the College life allows you to constantly meet interesting people from the most varied backgrounds. The course gave me a full perspective on Latin America's most significant debates and flexibility to tailor my research according to my own interests. I was also awarded a generous travel grant to undertake my fieldwork in Brazil, greatly benefiting my research
