Overview

The Universitat de Barcelona, founded in 1450, is a comprehensive higher education institution that presents deep academic tradition coupled with frontier scientific knowledge. It is located in the city of Barcelona, one of the main cosmopolitan hubs in the Mediterranean and indeed in Europe. The University of Barcelona’s sixteen centres, clustered into six main campuses, are spread over the city and completely integrated into the urban life. Thus the majority of which are located within the city itself. The city itself becomes the campus of the University.
The University of Barcelona offers future postgraduate students a wide range of courses in almost all areas of knowledge tailored to their needs:

  • More than 140 official university master's degree courses.

    Those courses, including interuniversity degrees and Erasmus Mundus degrees, offer graduates either a professional or a research pathway, and allow them the access to doctoral programs. Adapted to the requirements of the EHEA, those courses are distributed into five branches of knowledge: Arts and Humanities, Education, Experimental Sciences, Health, and Social Sciences.  Twenty-four master’s degrees are taught entirely in English—six of them through the Erasmus Mundus programme.


  • More than 400 UB-specific master's degree courses and postgraduate diplomas.

    Face-to-face, blended or distance, those courses are designed to polish graduates' skills and abilities so that they can specialize in a professional area and prepare professionals who are looking to retrain.

       
  • 48 doctoral programs.

    Aimed at the advanced training for the student in research techniques through an organized set of educational activities and research which, prior to the preparation and the doctoral thesis defense, results in obtaining a doctoral degree. Each year more than 750 doctoral theses are submitted.


As the University of Barcelona is aware of the need to complement, extend and update knowledge in a changing world, it provides a series of other courses, as the Study Abroad program, the University of Barcelona International Summer School, or the courses on Spanish language and culture offered by the Institute of Hispanic Studies.

Besides those academic programs, the University of Barcelona offers a wide range of services and facilities to the students, as the academic counselling and career services, more than 100.000 square meters of sports facilities, a network of seventeen libraries or a set of residences halls and other housing facilities.
