The Universitat de Barcelona is a public institution founded in 1450. It comprises sixteen centers spread out in 6 different campuses around the city. The University of Barcelona is positioned first in the Spanish rankings of Universities and in the 156th position in international rankings. It is among the 25 best universities in the world with more than 400 years of history. It is a leading research university in Europe.Show more
So far, most of my teachers have been mostly excellent, but the lack of information about exams or further readings makes it harder to study specifically for what they expect.
The library is quite good when it comes to online content, but some very important journals are missing from this digital library. The library itself is useful to study, but the amount of useful content is lacking, most books being either too fringe or too general, making it difficult to find what one needs to study in specific fields.
In general, I enjoyed the degree. There are very interesting subjects, the teachers have a lot of experience and the programme has an enriching interdisciplinary approach. However, I missed more dynamic classes to discuss and learn in a less theoretical and magisterial way. The campus is old and has poor facilities. The fieldworks are nice.View more
The University of Barcelona has many positive aspects. To begin with, it is a University with great international renown, thanks to this the professors who teach the classes are professionals with great knowledge and are always willing to help students outside class hours, either by email, is very good. communication by this means, or in person after class. The facilities are very good and are equipped with very good material, in the laboratories, computer rooms, library, etc.
The vast majority of the University’s faculties are located in the Barcelona metropolitan area, which makes the daily commute very easy if you live in the city.
I would also like to highlight something that I consider to be very positive, which is that the curriculum has an extensive number of practice hours, this makes it easier to gain experience on the theory seen in class.
Finally, a negative point that I would like to mention since it can be useful for other students, is that the University, due to the way in which the schedules are organized, does not leave much availability for students who have to work part-time while they are studying.
I’m a student of the University of Barcelona, and as I see it, the university is one of the best in Spain because the professors are willing to help you if you send them a mail writing the problem or if you speak to them in person. Besides that, you have great installations, and the university itself is ranked the best university of Spain internationally in many rankings. Speaking of other things, the location is not the best because it’s not located near the centre of Barcelona, unlike the UPF, but it’s not the worst location because the UAB is the worst located. To sum up, I would recommend the UB if you lived in Barcelona instead of the other universities in the city itself.View more
The program is wholesomely structured. Basic theory built to understand what is being done in the industry today. The professors are interested in what they teach, which makes coming to class more pleasurable. Finally, it’s a huge university. Many campuses over the whole city.View more
I feel that the student life is missing for the PhD students and I’ve had a lot of headaches as an international student dealing with the administration. The professors are excellent and you have access to state of the art facilities and interesting projects.View more
I met with the Erasmus program in this school and I fell in love with one word. Both the interest of the professors and the diversity of international students in campus life really fascinated me. The building is already so full of history and art that you can feel like you are in a movie scene while walking around. Although it seemed very different to me at first as exams and scoring system, we were able to adapt later on. library, cafeteria and student activities abound. Be sure that you will enjoy studying here without getting bored!View more
It is a degree that was supposed to take 3 years. With the Bologna plan, it was lengthened to 4. Many subjects are extras and do not have enough or relevant content to be used on a daily basis. However, there are three internships that I see as very appropriate and enriching for students.View more
I am very happy since we do internships in very good hospitals and the teachers are remarkable people. It is true that I believe that efficiency should be improved when it comes to making arrangements and communication between students and teachers.View more
