I studied Computer Engineering in Deusto, I had to go half an hour before 8 in the morning when the classes started because it was impossible to find a place that was not in the last two rows going to the hour, because a single student could reserve entire rows putting papers from the back of the table, nothing could be heard from behind, nor could it be seen because the rows were all at the same level and not at different levels, as is the case in most prestigious faculties and because the professors did not want to use the microphone, teaching was very theoretical and tiresome and you learned rather little not having anything practical until the last courses and rather scarce, they made me compulsorily buy a computer last model the first year of the race with the high cost I had for after barely using it in the first courses, high fees are paid every two months so that teaching would be better, I had to overcome myself because the beginning They were very uphill because of all this I mention.
Deusto es una Uni marcada por el carácter católicos de sus fundadores, los jesuitas.
Tiene justa fama en sus carreras de derecho y derecho económico.
En mitad de la ciudad, su campus tiene un cierto aire “pijo”, habiendo todo tipo de gente. El claustro de profesores suele incluir profesionales de prestigio.
Es privada, pero no elitista.
Se trata de una buena opción. Y además, está en el centro de Bilbao!
Professors generally have an impressive background and experience, but many of them fail to engage students in their subjects. However, in comparison with other universities nearby, the quality is good.
Facilities are acceptable, and many of them are currently being renewed.
The ambience is nice, and depending on the degree, it will be more or less welcoming towards incoming students.
One should weigh whether he is willing to spend much money coming to this university. For some degrees, such as Business Administration, it might be worth it, but it is not a top university in the country anyway and valid alternatives can be found nearby.
Mi experiencia en Deusto es de hace una década y solo puedo opinar sobre aquella experiencia, aunque sé que se han implementado procesos de mejora continua que han aumentado la calidad de la enseñanza. No obstante, el título de mi reseña hace referencia a la diferencia entre grados. De hecho posee y mantiene un gran prestigio en algunos de ellos, aunque le hacía falta poteniar algunos otros. En general, buena calidad de las instalaciones y del profesorado.
Para ser privada, no es demasiado cara.
Aunque también debería ser más prestigiosa. Salvo la Comercial y ESIDE (donde yo fui), el resto de facultades no aportan nada especial sobre la UPV/EHU.
Sin embargo, yo a titulo personal no me puedo quejar, ya que así pude evitar tener que ir hasta otra provincia a formarme.
