Esade Law School, Spain


Kia ora, and ¡hola! My name is Kat, and I’ll be completing my final semester of my Law and Global Studies conjoint at Esade in Barcelona, Spain.

I was born and raised in Aotearoa, but I have done plenty of travelling around the world. I was lucky enough to sneak in a month learning Spanish in Salamanca, Spain, in February 2020 – right before Covid hit! I’m very excited to go back to a different part of Spain and put some of my Spanish skills to the test.

Heading to Esade is also a great opportunity to put my two degrees together, combining the intercultural skills from Global Studies, while taking law papers at one of the top private universities in Spain. I’m very excited about making new friends and immersing myself in the Spanish student life. But of course, a European exchange wouldn’t be complete without a few cheeky weekend adventures around the continent too!

If you want to hear more about travelling in a post-pandemic world, I’ll also be documenting some of my adventures on my podcast, Great Morning Podcast (and @greatmorningpodcast on insta). Can’t wait to share all my adventures with you!
