I studied tourism at UAB for one semester in 2022. I was supposed to stay for a full year, but my experience wasn’t good and I left after the first semester.
First of all, the housing area (Villa universitária) has mold. I was sick constantly during my exhange and went through multiple respiratory infections. I also had almost daily headaches and a very painful and strong cough. All of this eased after a couple weeks once I returned to my home country. Other exhange students told me about having the same issues and some noticed mold in their apartment walls.
The housing area at times is very unsave and not controlled properly.
The tourism faculty is located in the same building with the housing area reception. Therefore, it was very excluded from the rest of the campus. That’s why, I didn’t really get to use any of the services offered at the campus or get a real university experience.
UAB also has a medical centre for “all students” according to their website, yet this doesn’t include tourism students. I was turned away from the centre despite being extremely sick once they heard I study tourism at the school.
The classes focused more on remembering as much information as you can to pass the exam, rather than focusing on understanding, critical thinking etc. The teachers were very often late to classes, they felt very unmotivated and I received very little feedback.
In short, I do not recommend UAB. My experience was a loss of money and time.View more
My sister is going this university I really satisfied this university every staffs and professor very respectful I advised all friends must try this university all rule regulations are satisfied all studentsView more
Corrupt and disorganized university that keeps the most incompetent professors. They always do everything wrong and never look out for the good of the students. It takes a lot of changes and a lot of staff renewal because they can’t have the same problems every year.View more
Classes have been going well, but some classrooms are a bit cramped and uncomfortable. In engineering most classes are in catalan, so if you’re doing an exchange program be ready for that. The school has a good and big sports area.View more
Considering how important health is, I personally find many faults in the way the contents are taught. If you have a global opinion about medicine at UAB, you should consider it’s actually a great place, with many teachers who are brilliant at their specialiality and can provide you with their knowlage.
However, I find most important that not only do they teach us the clinical view of health and how to preserve it, but they go further. Finding out how to diagnose a weird disease is important, but we should prepare health professionals to know how to treat patients with respect and with empacy.
More practice and less concepts should be the way to teach things in order to improve a system which only teaches us to treat them as a sum of diseases to treat.
I must highlight the importance of the UAB having four different hospitals to choose from, which gives you the possibility to explore your options depending on your personal opinions or distance.
The learner may get big qualification about his/her task, also many people from different countries are responsible to came and attend our online support because it is easy to access and earnable in terms of skills.View more
Starting with the positive part, the degree in East Asian Studies is very attractive for future students who are interested in geographical areas, since it covers many aspects of the student’s academic training very well. The subjects are distributed very well and the electives helped me to get to know other realities and possible professional paths.
On the negative side, the job offers that recent graduates have are zero, and the connection networks offered by the university for Humanities students do not exist, so finding a job related to what has been studied is impossible without the internship experience, and that doesn’t guarantee a job afterwards.
Despite the difficulties, I do not regret having chosen this career, but I wish there were more tools for graduates.View more
So far, I have found out that UAB provides very practical knowledge since the teachers use hands-on activities as well as an experiential way of educating. The only drawback I have noticed is that streaming sessions take place more often than face to face lectures. For me, this is disadvantageous since I find it a little hard sometimes to shift from one type of study to another.View more
