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.
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.
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.
Hola Mireia, cómo estás? Soy Camila y soy colombiana. Estoy interesada en hacer un máster en Barcelona el próximo año, tengo muchas dudas al respecto en cuánto vivienda, precios y demas requerimientos, crees que podrías ayudarme? '
UAB is one of five universities in Spain. It provides many programs, especially for international students. Marketing, business and economics are main topics that students prefer. Education program provides different perspectives to people which can be used in work life as an experience. Lecturers share their life experiences which have priceless value. Due to this education style, people should study at least one semester in UAB.
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.
Hi! I studied master in UAB 3 years ago. It has been such a rich experience for me. There are so many events besides lectures and studying in the year for you to try out new things and it has really improved me on a personal level. If you want to party hard or work hard, this is the place for both.
UAB provides the most different programs for international students in Spain. Its Erasmus and master programs portfolio is quite big. From social sciences to medicine many programs can be found in English. As Barcelona being one of the most popular cosmopolitans, city also welcomes students warmly. Education level is high and university adds a lot to students. Only negative point is its campus being out of city. It is easy to travel from city centre but takes approximately 45 minutes. In campus there are many oppurtunities including dorms. I would suggest everyone to have experience in UAB.
Even campus is located outside of city, there are many oppurtunities provided by university. It is listed in first 100 universities among world universities. Education contributes to your life. Due to high population, for special occasions students should be aware. If students can make good network in university, lecturers are always keen on supporting student. There are many specific programs taught in Spanish and English.
