UAB is one of the most known univeristies in Catalonia because of teh amount of good investigation that has been done here but it also has something that makes it really popular among the students and it’s the green spaces that it has.
As a student, I love getting out of class and feel the sun in my skin as I sit on the ground and talk with my friends about what we have done and the next subject we have. I know you can do that wherever but it makes you feel so cozy in the environment and leads to interesting talks, we even sometimes do lectures outside.
It makes you feel peace and disconnect a bit from the demanding studying world and encourages creativity.
I had an incredible experience with the BME – Business Management in Europe program at UAB. Having the opportunity to spend a year at UAB was truly enriching. UAB’s multiple campuses offer a unique mix – one in the heart of historic Barcelona, housed in a charming building, and another more modern campus further from the city center, complete with sports facilities, a library, and student accommodations. The university’s extensive course selection and attentive professors made my academic journey exceptional.View more

From the University of Carabobo I can highlight its effort to maintain the right to a quality education for thousands of young Venezuelans who do not have the economic possibilities to pay for studies at a private university. Being a public and autonomous university, it has gone through and is still going through many difficulties and shortcomings, but it is still a good option to study for free, most of the teachers are very good.View more
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

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
