    One of my best experiences

    I have started to study here last year during my Master Studies and it was great! Truly, one of my best campus ever. They have everything inside even a supermarket. The students Council is pretty cool and they have a lot of activities to meet new people. More than recommended if you are looking for a friendly campus in Barcelona.

    Good campus where you can find everything you need.

    The university, despite being far from Barcelona, is very well connected to the center. In addition, precisely because of this, it has all kinds of facilities (coffee shops, libraries, copy shop, bank, study rooms, dining rooms …) and open spaces where you can enjoy the good weather.
    There is a lot of university life on campus and that facilitates both the adaptation of new students and exchange students.
    My faculty has an interpretation classroom with booths in very good condition, but the normal classrooms were not so well preserved.

    A GREAT INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY

    My experience in the Autonomous University of Barcelona was a great one. It has everything a young inexperienced student from secondary school would dream about. Its green spaces are the key to create a relaxing atmosphere. The UAB campus offers you a lot of facilities such as restaurants, cafés, sports, accommodation and others. You can also enjoy learning different international languages in its specialised language school and even learn to drive. Many students have had the opportunity to learn in this amazing educational institution and I have not met anyone who does not like it.

    Quality teaching staff

    I am very happy to have chosen this university to take my degree since the quality of teacher training is noticed. Also, I believe that the degrees offered are well equipped. Convenient rooms and with enough technologies to carry out activities from your computer. The only thing I would notice would be to my mind (I’m already entering my career, but I guess it also happens to others) is that during the first year more subjects should be offered which would be the content of the Career, to try to prevent people from doing something that they really do not like and realize at the end of the year; They save people time and the students will be happy to see that they offer them the first subjects that illusion them.

    very wide offer of races

    They have a very wide range of races and that is very good. They also have an excellent campus. What I would improve would be the subjects they offer in some careers, since they may be obsolete and would require updating their curriculum. Anyway, I’m happy with the career I’m studying (musicology). Facilities prepared for all types of students, are also adapted for people with some physical disability that prevents you from climbing stairs, with ramps and lifts. Good treatment of the staff. He is very aware of political updates and is a very demanding university. Good location

    Excellent campus

    The campus is very good, there is a good atmosphere among the students; There are good places and spaces dedicated to the study and dedicated to facilitate spaces for working in groups. There is a lot of variability in the offer of degrees. The only negative thing to note is that for this same issue, the schedule of many careers is not compatible with the work schedule of some students (previously it was possible because some faculties freed on Fridays).

    University lacks modernization

    It’s a highly competitive university and is considered one of the best in Spain. However, I believe during my experience at UAB, I thought that despite considered so “prestigious” it is lacking modernization.
    In some ways it felt like the continuation of high school. You attend classes, have your books, hand in some projects and then exams. I didn’t appreciate the fact that projects were hardly a 10-20% of each course and they depended heavily in your exam results. I felt like sometimes the system was a bit unfair. If you did not perform very well in an exam, you could have failed the entire class.
    Also, even if there is a digital campus, I wish they could utilize it better and give more material. In some classes, you rely on what is delivered during class! If you miss a class, you feel like you are left behind and there are no slides or material to be found anywhere online. I felt that professors were not that involved with international students compared to locals and were not really willing to help outside office hours. The library is super cool, however I was hoping for more facilities for students even though the campus is huge!

    Something really negative is that the campus is really far from the city center in Bellatera. The only accommodation you can find is on the campus which is very old, and not convenient. Otherwise, you’d need at least 30-40 mins from city center.

    Campus UAB

    My experience at the UAB is very good; The only thing I would say is that in some careers it is necessary to modernize the curricula because they need to be updated, as well as teaching methods. In general, the atmosphere is very good, just like the diversity of careers.

    Studying Arabic at the UAB

    The University is located outside the city centre, in Bellaterra, about 40 min by train from placa de Catalunya. It’s location is perfect if you are looking for a cheap accommodation, because around the university there are several villages/towns where you can find cheaper flats to share and rooms. I live in Cerdanyola del Valles for example, and going to the university takes me very little time, about 15 min by bus or by train.__ Furthermore the university zone together with some other small towns in the surroundings, has recently been included in the metropolitan area of Barcelona, so I suggest future students to check before taking a room there. ُُThe benefit is that, either if you live in the centre and take the train to go to class or you live nearby the university (in one too the town included in the zone 1) and need to go to the centre or to the faculty you just need a 1zone ticket in any of these cases. for people who are younger than 25 there is also the opportunity to buy a cheaper three-month ticket which is called “tjoven”.__The campus has a lot of facilities, the best thing is the free bus service in the campus, but for the rest, is not cheap at all. __I am currently attending a master in Contemporary Arabic studies. The idea itself is very good, but since it is pretty new (started in 2017) it is not well organised yet, although the coordinator is always open to feedback and suggestions. __The professors are mostly highly qualificated and competent, and Arabic is their mother tongue. The classes are really 100% in Arabic, except for some translations needed. __No scholarships are provided, nor any kind of economical help, and there are no work stages in the program.
