The Autonomous University of Madrid (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid) also known as UAM was established in 1968 as a Spanish public university.Its main campus is Cantoblanco, located in northern Madrid.Show more
It has a very well equipped and beautiful campus with garden areas. It is a fairly quiet place, the teachers are usually quite competent at least in my grade, they cover a wide range of subjects and have many activities and associations.View more
It is a university that provides you with a lot of knowledge about your degree, but they are usually very dense subjects and with a lot of information that sometimes become difficult to study, since you also have internships, seminars, etc. that leave you with little time to organize. It is a university with many means, but often it is made difficult by the saturation of work that they ask you.View more
It is a very good university. Teachers are excellent professionals, with the exception of a small number, who in addition to face-to-face classes usually provide additional materials through the virtual platform and are in constant contact with you through it.
Also noteworthy are the magnificent facilities such as the cafes (I recommend the right one), gym, library, swimming pool …
I started university with a lot of expectations. The degree I chose was Modern languages, culture and communication, and it sounded so interesting that I could choose two languages to study in deep. The ones I chose were English and Japanese. Whereas some subjects are interesting and fun, some teachers make others tiresome. However, the university has a lot of positive experiences, like meeting awesome new people and joining the language school, which has great teachers. I think the university should improve how certain degrees and subjects are organised. That way the university life would improve a lot!View more
Academically, UAM is known as one of the top universities in Spain and studying there guarantees good career prospects. The teachers in the faculties of Law and Economics are highly qualified both in the academic and the professional world, which is greatly appreciated. UAM has a very nice campus away from Madrid centre- which I see as a plus but should be considered when applying to this university, as assistance to class is normally compulsory. The biggest setback are its facilities- it is a fifty-year-old public university which hasn’t had much refurbishing done. With regards to internationality, UAM has hundreds of agreements signed with universities all over the world in order to guarantee international mobility to all students who want to study abroad and receives hundreds of incoming international students each year. Although hardly anyone lives on-campus (and take a 25-minute direct train to Madrid centre every day instead), student life at UAM is a big part of the experience of studying there and I would recommend you make the most of every “sangriada” that takes place!View more
As a student at the Faculty of Translation and Interpreting of the UAB, I think the facilities are adequate in general, but sometimes the space of some classrooms is very small and the chairs are quite uncomfortable and there is no reprography service in the building. There is a cafeteria next to the building, but the prices are too high. The library has many meeting rooms and positions to study. I also see very positive the initiative to leave the Library of Social Sciences open 24 hours a day, seven days a week to go to study.View more
I studied Translation and Interpreting in the UAM, in Madrid. The campus is out of the city itself, 20 minutes by train from the city center. Therefore, in the campus there is literally only the campus, which is very nice when you live in a big city like Madrid so that you can breath fresh air and enjoy the nature, but take into account that the only way to reach the university is by public transport and by car.
There are many faculties together, I studied in the Philosophy and Letters’ one. In there, the atmosphere is really good and inclusive, no matter how you are, you will find your place there. Often there were photography and art expositions and music in the corridors, and there are two cafeterias with decent and cheap food.
The administration, however, is not the most efficient, and the schedule for the administrative offices was sometimes a bit hard to meet and therefore to get your questions answered. The exception is the International Relations Office. As most of the students of this Faculty go on Erasmus, they know how to give you advice and how to help and guide international students.
The teachers are usually good and competent and the classmates normally very open minded and interesting!View more
It’s a public college that offers different career paths with thousands of different options to join to. Organized, serious and professional. I like the campus since it makes you feel part on a whole, not just your own school – economics, law…View more
It has a good infrastructure. The course (economics and business faculty) has some great professors but unfortunately the focus in the academic field and not in the professional one. Besides that, there are some classes on the master’s that are irrelevant when it comes to pursuing a career in the economic field, what shouldn’t happen at a master’s degree. Therefore, the course could be better structured. However, the level of exigence is high so it helps you improve your skills. It offers extracurricular lectures and it has a faculty body that it’s great and it’s always available to help you out.View more
University with very good academic level and the best infrastructures but I had problems with the enrolment. They wanted to apply excessive fees that did not correspond. Besides they were rude when I complained.
For everything else… very good.
