    A quick look into a translation degree

    The programme ‘Modern Languages and Translation’ taught at Universidad de Alcalá has been rated as one of the best translation programmes in the country. It offers a wide variety of classes, especially the optative and transversal subjects, and useful internship offers. It also shines due to its participation in the Erasmus programme. The Universidad de Alcalá is a big supporter of this programme for both undergraduate and postgraduate students, but the programme Translation gives special importance to studying a year abroad. It encourages all students to apply to this programme and it offers its students an extensive variety of universities they can choose from all over the world.
    The only complaint I have about this programme is that, in my opinion, does not give translation enough importance. There aren’t any subjects related to translation until the 3rd year; the 1st and 2nd years have classes related to English, Spanish, linguistics and other important and useful subjects, but I feel like students should start learning and practising translation earlier in the programme.
    Therefore, if you are looking for a programme based solely on the translation you should choose another one; however, if you are interested in a programme that explores languages, cultures and other linguistic areas besides translation, then Modern Languages and Translation in Universidad de Alcalá would be perfect for you.

    Master in Geographic Information Technologies

    The master is very technical, but at the same time very practical. Many hours are spent to teach you the practice, which in my opinion is the best especially when it comes to learning the programs. It could improve the Python subject, since it does not start with the most basic level and it is difficult for those who are not from technical careers. The school is very international and I recommend it 100%, I have learned more here than in my entire undergraduate career.

    An opinion on Erasmus

    I’m from Bulgaria. There I study landscape architecture at the University of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geodesy in Sofia. I’m in Madrid for the Erasmus exchange. I am very pleased with both universities. I would say that there is more opportunity here because you have more choice of subjects and you can choose them yourself, not like in Bulgaria.

    Unprepared teachers, corruption, little attention ...

    I did my Audiovisual Communication career in this University, I have to say that I paid almost € 2000 a year, to have qualified teachers who did not know how to give classes or who skipped classes for social events. The classrooms were poorly prepared, the teaching guides were not carried out or were outdated. The facilities took two years to enable them. An engineering that has to be quite practical, we only touched theory. The good; the material was not bad at all and we were allowed to use it for external work where we learned, together with the technician in charge who explained how to use it.

    Recommended only for a few degrees

    It’s very well connected with buses 227 coming from Madrid and 2 that goes to the city center.
    What I like the most about this university is its option of studying a bilingual program. I’m studying my degree in English, and there are not many universities that offer it. Of course, there are degrees that most universities have in English, but not engineering.
    What I don’t like about it is that it doesn’t offer many degrees and those that are not oriented to computer science or telecom, are not very well globally ranked.
    Teachers are always willing to give Tutorial sessions outside of class hours and are always there for you whenever you have doubts.
    Transparencies are very clear and the methods of grading are fair.

    Good university

    Good organization and close contact with the student. Good teacher training generally. The evaluation methods are good as they follow continuous evaluation that makes everything not result of an examination.

    Bad

    Very bad organization The students are too demanding and the progenitors do little of their part. Lateness in uploading notes and correction, do not respond to emails, and especially very very bad organization. Sometimes it seems that they laugh at the students.

    Todavía queda mucho en la enseñanza deportiva

    A pesar de que las instalaciones no eran las mejores y los recursos mas bien escasos (no teníamos piscina para realizar las asignaturas acuáticas), los docentes y los alumnos siempre estábamos dispuestos a sacar soluciones ante cualquier actividad que tuviésemos que realizar. El 90% del profesorado está bien cualificado y la mayoría siempre dispuestos a ayudar siempre y cuando te hubieses esforzado.

    Buena universidad

    Me encuentro finalizando el Grado en ingeniería electrónica de comunicaciones, y en concreto la Escuela Politécnica es un edificio que está bien equipado con ordenadores, instrumentación para los alumnos. Los profesores suelen ser generalmente cercanos e intentan ayudar, aunque suelen ser bastante duros en los exámenes, pero si te esfuerzas todo se consigue. Entre los compañeros también buen rollo.
    Recomendable para estudiar ingenierías.
