    GRADUATE STUDENTS BEWARE

    Program: Masters in Bioinformatics in Health Sciences

    Choosing to enter the Bioformatics program at UPF was a huge disappointment. I have never experienced such an inefficient, unprepared, and undedicated cohort of administrators, secretaries, and program leaders. Everyone takes several days to respond to questions and continually pass you off to other people. The feeling they instill in their students is that they are undependable, and you are just a tuition payment rather than a person.

    Especially for non-EU students (who will be paying double the price as everyone else), trust me and spend your money elsewhere.

    I love this university so far

    I think the teaching methods here are quite good,I’ve loved the facilities, the personnel, almost everything here. Except for some course they were graded by TAs and somehow they may not be so objective maybe because they do not understand our cultural difference.

    An experience to exit the comfort zone

    I chose to study at this university because many friends recommended it to me. I think it has good teachers, the subjects and agendas are updated.
    It is always good to study in some recognized place in the world because that speaks of how well you learn.
    Yes I would recommend it.

    it is impossible to be perfect

    Pompeu Fabra is a well-known university in Barcelona, also around Spain. It has a lot of international opportunities as it has good exchange opportunities and lots of classes in English.
    The educational level of the university is high. What’s more, the professors are really well qualified with previous experiences in the fields they are teaching. However, sometimes being the best in something doesn’t make you the best to teach so as you also have to know how to share your knowledge. That’s the only thing that is wrong with the university as it has qualified people but that sometimes they don’t know how to explain it well, but they know how to do it.

    However, still with those little imperfections of the university as it has a good reputation is easy to find an internship.

    And the marks in the UPF aren’t really high but because the exams sometimes are too much difficult.

    incredible university in the heart of Barcelona

    I would definitely recommend this university. Good facilities in each way: classrooms are big and comfortable, the library is amazing, the location couldn’t be better and there are prestigious teachers in most of the courses.

    UPF - good university

    I studied my Bachelor in Business Management at Universitat Pompeu Fabra and I liked it a lot!

    I think UPF is one of the best universities in Barcelona, mainly for Economic studies for many reasons:

    First of all, the first years you get a good basis of the field you are studying (for example, I was studying Management but I had also the basis of Economics) and after you specialize in what you prefer. I think this is really good because having a good basis enables you to understand more and have bigger knowledge.
    Also, it is an international university, since there are lots of Erasmus students and therefore, many classes in English.
    Moreover, the teachers are really good, they have the best Curriculum you can imagine!
    And also, the university gives lots of opportunities to students to find a good company where to do your internship, a good university where to do your Erasmus and even they try to help you looking for a job after your studies!

    In general, I think you learn a lot in UPF and it gives you lots of opportunities to learn and improve!

    Networking Possibilities at UPF

    In my current experience coming to UPF, the first thing I have found out how it prides itself as a university with a vast network of opportunities for its students. More than that, though, it holds a place for students personal and school projects, with online networks to expose and promote them. As such, it carries various platforms for networking online and in person, even if accessing them can sometimes feel like a tricky labyrinth. Nevertheless, they are equipped with an IT center which always helps with any issues on accessing these platforms.
    As to the classes, having small groups of students per program allows more direct interactions with professors and fellow classmates, as well as one-on-one debates and class practices. It often has group exercises directed towards the specific master’s. And as an international student myself, the opportunities to make connections with classmates and professors alike allow for an easier transition into this new experience, as well as my very own online information portal where there are forums with specific guidelines for international students for adapting both to the city and classes.
    All in all, the university provides for its students however it can, has more than one option for current and future job offers and is always willing to provide a helping hand with its team of counsellors and guides.

    High quality studies

    Universitat Pompeu Fabra is a very good university. hey are always making sure they are in the best universities rankings in the world but actually, they deserve to be in them.

    I studied Audiovisual Communication there and I have to say it was very good. Although they need to improve a lot of things, in general I am very satisfied. Most of the teachers are very good professionals and intellectuals who have a lot to teach you. Also, the subjects are not only theory lectures, as we also have the opportunity to practice and, in our case, create shortfilms, documentaries, film in a TV set, write real film scripts… In addition, the installations are very good. Even if the Communication Campus is not very big, it has everything you could ever need while studying there.

    Nevertheless, as I said before, not everything is perfect. The
    bureaucratic processes sometimes take forever, as the workers at the academic secretary often don’t know how to help you, or they can’t deal with all the work they have. Besides, we had some teachers who were very good professionals but really didn’t know how to teach properly. So not all the experiences I had there were very good ones. But I think that’s OK, as not everything can be perfect!

    So even so, I rate my university with 5 stars because I believe they taught me a lot and I can tell it is a very good one. I feel lucky I had the chance to study Audiovisual Communication there. #jolapompeu

    One of the bests

    Great campus, very professional teachers and good equipment. The Communication campus has a big square which is great to study, sit with the colleagues or have some food. The rooms are well equiped but the wifi is horrible.
