UIC Barcelona is a very good university, not only because of the quality of its teachers but also because of the close relationship with the students. Throughout the race an adviser is assigned to each student who guides you not only with academic subjects but also in your professional career.
As regards the Faculty of Communication Sciences, the professors are excellent. Many of them are working in the sector and offer you day-to-day experiences that help you see which branch of communication you want to guide your future. In addition, many practical subjects are done on television as well as in the written press, radio and corporate communication, which helps you put into practice the knowledge acquired.
The bag of practices they offer is very good. They give you the possibility of doing extracurricular practices throughout the race, in addition to the compulsory ones. If the university does not have an agreement with the company you want to go to, they study your case and create new agreements. In my case, I did internships in a communication medium and when I finished they offered me to stay to work.
If I had to study journalism again, I would do it again at UIC Barcelona.
It’s a good university. The good thing is that he is young and the teachers are very motivated and there is a close deal. In terms of size, it is not a very large university, but you can tell that they are expanding. The theoretical training is good and they put a lot of emphasis in the practices, which in the public are very left. In addition, they try to give a humanistic touch and values that in the health area are greatly appreciated. The truth is that I am very satisfied, the only downside is that being private you have to leave enough pasta …
I did a university exchange in the UIC for a semester and I studied subjects of the Audiovisual Communication, Journalism and Advertising careers. The university is beautiful and very well organized. The subjects in general were not challenging for me, maybe because I studied second and third year subjects when I was in fourth grade. The teachers were good. The location of the faculty is not good. There is no public transport from the city center that leaves you less than 10/12 blocks away.
