    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.

    Fantastic experience

    I spent a year in UAB last year studying a master. And I’ll remember it forever. The campus is huge with all these convenient facilities. Students from all over the world gather around, which forms an international environment. Apart from the schoolwork, I also adore the gym in campus, SAF, which is very economic.

    Hello i am applying to the Logistics and supply chain program in UAB so i wanted to know how would you rate the program. Thanks
  • 100% recommended

    Qualified teachers and study plans with many options. It also has agreements with numerous foreign universities in which to make exchanges / practices. Perfect for international students. The campus format gives added value to the university and compensates for those outside of Barcelona. I do not put 5 stars because everywhere they cook beans, but I would recommend it without a doubt.

  • Event Organisation
    The UAB city - Master in events

    I am currently studying a Master in organization of events at the UAB, the beauty of this site is that it seems like a small town, you have everything you need around the university and the residence. It has direct connection to Barcelona, ​​in 20 – 25 ‘you plant in Plaza Cataluña. The civic square and its green areas invite to study abroad taking advantage of the good climate of Barcelona, ​​and interact with people; At the end of the day it is a campus that houses many specialties and facilitates the relationship between different careers promoting greater learning.

    In the other races I do not know exactly how it works, but in my master they gave us the opportunity to meet many professionals in the sector. Our tutor was always very active in recommending events and fairs that we could attend to learn more or look for work. It also has an internship program and every year they give the opportunity to work with a wide range of companies in the sector.
    In addition, it is a very international course, the classes are in Spanish, but every year people from outside are enrolled, which enriches much more.

    The handicap of the course is that many things are played but none in much detail, perhaps I would have liked to know a little more about all the typical mistakes that usually occur in events, in order to learn from it. A part of this, the deal has always been very close and always willing to help and adapt to your needs, which is valued very much and more in a big city like Barcelona, ​​where sometimes you are just a number.

    -

    Regarding the degree of Journalism: – The teaching staff is professional and trained, and most of them help you as much as possible. – The material of the faculty (radio and television studios, cameras, microphones, etc.) is in good condition and available to all students. – The only downside that I put is that the program of the race is a bit old-fashioned, but that does not depend on the university but the system in general.
