The University of Barcelona wants to welcome you to the University of Barcelona’s International Summer School webpage.

The University of Barcelona’s International Summer School wants to bring the high quality education that the University of Barcelona (UB) offers to all publics as well as to show the cultural offer and social events that the city of Barcelona offers.

The UB has joined forces with the Town Hall in order to enhance and promote the courses for a socially diverse offer from the University of Barcelona International Summer School.

The courses are designed to offer a diverse educational offer to internationally focused students and professionals in a selection of subject areas as well as to offer the general public a variety of subjects many of which are related to the history, culture, and evolution of the city of Barcelona and its cultural diversity.

The University of Barcelona is dedicated to international cooperation and it is highly recognized worldwide for its accomplishments in research and innovation. The UB is also the principal centre of university research in Spain and has become a European benchmark for research activity, both in terms of the number of research programmes it conducts and the excellence these have achieved.

Its own history closely tied to the history of Barcelona and Catalonia, the UB combines the values of tradition with its position as an institution dedicated to innovation and teaching excellence: a university that is as outward-looking and cosmopolitan as the city from which it takes its name.

The University of Barcelona: International Scope.

The academic and scientific world is inherently international, and the UB aims to incorporate this international dimension into all aspects of its teaching and research activity, as well as the services it offers to the university community.
The international activity of the University of Barcelona is focused on:

  • The international mobility of students and teaching staff as part of an educational project;

  • Education in an international context;

  • The creation of international scientific partnerships in order to stimulate research in an international context and the international mobility of researchers;
  • Cooperation between the university and developing countries to aid the development of Third World peoples;
  • the UB's presence and participation in international networks.

Thanks for visiting the University of Barcelona International Summer School webpage. We hope to see you very soon!
