I studied to be a primary teacher and the best thing in my Degree was the internship in the school. Of course, the subjects in all the Degree are perfect to become a good teacher, but the internships were amazing!View more
I would recommend to everyone to study at least one year of their life in Salamanca, because it is a magical city. The University of Salamanca, at least, when I studied there, has good facilities and a fairly large research faculty. It is a University that has quite advanced electronic resources compared to other Universities. It is a very young but old university. As for the degree in Labor Relations, it has its economic, psychological and legal part, and obviously Salamanca has the best for teaching these subjects. It also has Labor Inspectors, Social Security Managers … etc.View more
Good place and good people but some Professors need to improve their methods. Nowadays they must use new technologies and facilities and just not the simple powerpoint from the 18 century.
Otherwise, there are some excellent professionals and finally, you get a good level and preparation.
It is a very complete university. Some teachers could be improved as they don’t update the information with the current situation of the economy and don’t give real examples of the working life but in general, it is goodView more
I want to believe that my bad experience was because my degree was new at that time, and we were the first promotion. But it was not truly organized, teachers did not seem to care for the students, they had not any background to make classes interesting and useful. Of course, there were some exceptions, but in general, my opinion is not really good. I hope they will improve these issues since the competent bodies did not care about the students’ opinion nor the biannual surveys we did.View more
My experience as a student at the University of Salamanca has to say that it has been satisfactory. In certain aspects I have benefited more from being a member of this university community than from the degree itself. In my case, I studied Occupational Therapy, a poorly developed career at this university that aspires to improve every year. Still, the many conferences, talks, presentations, language courses … etc that the university offers are very useful.View more
As a student, I have had the opportunity to witness the overall performance of the university. From the Law’s Bachelor perspective, although every department has very talented researchers and lecturers, I would recommend to strengthen the internship programs and facilitating entry to the labour market for students. Anyway, the University of Salamanca offers a very enriching experience within an international, diverse environment. 8/10View more
The city is very small, because you can travel it in 50 minutes from end to end. The student environment is amazing. People from all over come to Salamanca to study and enjoy all the charm it offers with its cathedral, the Plaza Mayor, etc. Academically leaves much to be desired …View more
