These are early impressions of a rather new program, so issues described here may be fixed in later semesters or years.
This is a review of the English language program in archaeology for international students. It is slightly different than advertised—not very intensive, with classes only once a week. Class sizes are extremely small (less than 40 per grade) but that does not mean that you get individual attention. It seems slightly better suited to students who want to improve their English skills (from a B1/B2 level or higher) than native English speakers, who may find it slow paced.
This is not at all similar to an Erasmus experience—no ESN card is received, and though both domestic and Erasmus students eat at the school canteen for free, students in this program do not (they get a 1 euro discount). It is very separated from the rest of the EKPA university and therefore difficult to make connections outside the program. Many of the bureaucratic processes to begin the program and properly live in Athens take longer than they should. They person they have in charge of student affairs is hardworking and sweet but constantly swamped, so getting anything done on time is extremely difficult.
There are some significant perks, like free Modern Greek language classes for one year, and the language center building is new, clean, modern, and quite beautiful. The interaction with the city is good (in the first semester we have already had two classes in nearby museums or sites), and the professors are all accommodating, understanding, extremely organized, and passionate experts in their subjects (which leads me to believe that the slowness of pace is entirely due to the structure of the program).
The program is suited to two kinds of people: extremely independent and self-motivated types who do most of their learning outside of school, and apathetic types who want to be able to skip class and easily pass. If you are a native English speaker looking for a program to truly push you to your academic best, look elsewhere.
(Ps the campus is Zografou, not Barcelona Spain, I don’t know why this site only gives that option)View more

During my orientation, ESCI-UPF made sure that students knew they were a “hard” and respected school. I was up for the challenge, and figured that would mean I would learn a lot. I was wrong. I am in the middle of my trimester here and I could not wait to write a review. The professors here are unorganized, unclear, and truly expect students to read their minds. When they said the university was hard, I figured that the studies or content would be difficult. The only thing that is “hard” is assuming what your professors want from you, as they give very little instructions on assignments. The administrative part of the university is also unorganized and does not provide detail in time. For example, a student strike is currently taking place and there was late announcement of this (after students had already arrived for class) and that classes were cancelled. They didn’t send the announcement to students, but to the study abroad programs, which caused a delay. They also do not announce their final exams until weeks into the trimester, and do not announce due dates in advance. This may be Spanish culture, but to pride yourself as a “hard” university you need to be organized, and clearly tell students what to expect throughout the trimester. I am frustrated with my experience here, and this has been my least favorite part about Spain.View more
I can describe it as “International university with highly qualified professors”. The first impression may not be the best, but with time it will only improve. Also, the approach of the teachers is not so bad, but they can do better effort to encourage the students in their subjects.View more
Es una universidad en la hay que elegir un nuevo idioma desde el primer curso. Esto me parece muy positivo, ya que los profesores que imparten las clases son nativos. Además hay 40% de clases en inglés durante la carrera.
Por otro lado, el período de prácticas obligatorio en el tercer año me parece un factor diferenciador de cara a otras universidades y lo considero favorable para el futuro laboral.
Los años que he pasado en ESCi han sido como una montaña rusa, donde las clases me aburrían pero he conocido a mi nueva familia. A los profesores les hace falta un par de clases de inglés, así como hacer las clases más dinámicas y encaradas a lo que de verdad nos encontraremos en el mundo laboralView more
ESCI es una escuela de negocios seria, donde existe un contacto cercano entre el alumno y el profesor. Disponen de una alta variedad de clases donde en algunos casos, si es cierto que necesitan terminar de pulir el temario para que resulte mas práctico y aplicable al ámbito laboral. Pero, en la mayoría de casos, ofrecen un temario exigente, riguroso, y una alta calidad de docencia. La escuela es pequeña, por lo que no siempre da la sensación de estar viviendo la experiencia universitaria, pero a la vez esto resulta en un muy agradable ambiente entre los estudiantes. Los puntos fuertes en mi opinión se resumen en: el programa de idiomas, el programa de prácticas, las buenas intalaciones y la gran valoración que tiene el título de negocios y marketing en el mercado.View more
Es una muy buena universidad, de las únicas de toda España que focaliza tanto en el mundo internacional, las asignaturas son muy variadas por lo que permite saber hacia donde decantar tu futuro dentro de las 5 menciones que ofrece la universidad. Y ofrece una buena oferta de practicas y inserción laboral, los últimos datos lo confirman, el 96% de las personas que buscan trabajo una vez acaban la carrera lo encuentran en un periodo de 6 meses”View more
