    I will recomend it. I really like the study program and the level of the teachers. I like the campus and how the program focuses in the needs of people and governments of Latin America. It’s wonderful the opportunity of knowing different success cases

  • UPF

    The Pompeu Fabra has accepted many international students, not only from European countries but also from South America, Asia, Africa. That’s why many students speak English between them. It’s interesting to meet people from all the world and it’s a really good opportunity to know a different culture. Some teachers are kind and responsible but some are not. If you google opinions about them before choosing classes, it will really be helpful.
    The library is perfect on the campus of Ciutadella, and it’s the most beautiful library I have been. 100% recommended.

  • First rank in Barcelona

    Pompeu Fabra is one of the oldest universities in Barcelona. Its history is not that long but in half century it caught up UB and UAB. For the beginning I came to Barcelona for erasmus. After my erasmus all my ideas changed and I decided to do my master at Pompeu Fabra. Its education and campus is high quality. Main campus is located close to seaside which makes it perfect point for life joint with education. Additionaly, life in Barcelona is so wonderful that people feel like they are in dream. That perfect combination directed me to start living in Barcelona. With name of UPF, I easily found a job. People and companies respect university title and they know students who graduate from this university are educated well absolutely.

  • Be prepared.

    It’s a very good university, with dedicated people, who help students prepare themselves for their future.. Knowledge is powerful.. If you study and wait, the opportunity will come but while you are waiting you prepared for the up and down of life.. That’s one of the most important things you learn here, that life is not easy.

  • Great university, Really good equipment

    I studied there my Audiovisual Communication degree, for this you need to have a lot of material and Pompeu Fabra had all computers, cameras, sets.. That we could ask and not only for our lessons, also to be used during our free time, what was perfect to practice.
    Most of the teachers had real experience working in the industry, which is something that gives a lot of value.
    In all degrees I believe the final project is really important and you also have credits to do an internship, at the same time that a lot of options to go on Erasmus.
    Moreover you have the opportunity to live fully the university by joining one of the student groups link ngos or associations.

  • Very good university, specializing in economics

    It's a very good, modern university. It has a lot of parts but the best is in the economy. The financial department is Europe's best 10 for research. It is quite central in Barcelona.

  • Great university!

    I would absolutely recommend Pompeu Fabra because I’m having a wonderful experience studying my degree there. Teachers are well-prepared and passionate, information systems are efficient and most subjects are interesting and enriching as well as demanding.

  • A good university

    UPF is one of the 4 public universities in Barcelona. In general, I could say that I received a satisfactory education there. Campuses are great and well located within the city; the quality of the lectures is good; the libraries opening hours is more than enough (during exams period it remains opened every day until 1am); the canteen &bar services are ok (although a little bit expenside). On the other hand, there are certain aspects they could improve: the schedules come out really late so it’s difficult to plan your term in advance (and during your first year you need to be in CSI to decode those schedules), burocracy is extremely slow, some student services are only opened in the morning… What it is sometimes confusing is that UPF works per trimesters and not per quarters, so you work different from all of your non-uni friends. Also, it would be great that when you finish your studies they help you a little bit more. You spend 4 years of your life there and suddenly you are no longer able to use their computers or access to all the material you have been using.

  • Great choice!

    Education is one of the best investments we can do to improve our future. Choosing Universitat Pompeu Fabra as the university to course our studies is another one. In fact, it is ranked as one of the best young universities in the world, continuously scaling positions in the list.
    Regarding the structure of the courses, specifically those in the Business field, subjects are divided in two parts: lessons and seminars. Generally, attendance to lessons is not mandatory but seminars are compulsory. I think it is the best way to ensure that we are following the course and it may help us to avoid (or at least reduce) the stress during the exams period. In other words, a great study method imposed by the university and approved by all of us.
    Leaving the academics behind, life in the different campuses is amazing. As I am taking Business courses, I study in Campus Ciutadella. Everywhere, from the library to the cafeteria, the atmosphere that we breath is international, young, full of life. People of different countries, cultures and interests meet each other to share knowledge, experiences and much more.
    All in all, UPF is a great, young and international university with a lot of things to offer to make our university period even better. If I had to choose, I would choose it again!

    Let yourself be surprised by Pompeu Fabra University

    We, Humanities students at Pompeu Fabra University, are rara avis on the campus (too philosophical?); even so, we are not deprived of an authentic college experience: entertaining classes, interesting discussions and endless hours in the bar sharing stories. UPF offers a good range of opportunities to find your place: organizations, theater group, choir, sports, assembly, and many more. Do not miss the opportunity to connect with a great diversity of people and increase your desire for knowledge day by day.
