UB and the Faculty of Biology
According to the rankings, the University of Barcelona is one of the most reputated European universities and actually located in one of the best cities to study. It is the first ranked university in Spain and the 166th among all the universities in the World in the QS World University Ranking 2019. In Biological Sciencies, the Faculty is ranked between the world's best 51-100. Its own history closely tied to the history of Barcelona and of Catalonia, our university 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 UB campuses are spread out across the entire inner-city area, thus fostering a series of close ties between the institution of our University and the city around us. These ties contribute to the human and cultural environment present in certain parts of Barcelona and enables members of the university community to enjoy both the city’s services and those of the UB.
The Faculty of Biology was established in 1974, making it a pioneering institution in Spain. It first appeared as a result of increasing knowledge in the field of life sciences at a time of relentless diversification. It is located on the Pedralbes Campus (Av. Diagonal, 643) opposite the Palau Reial, and as such is well connected with the various public transport systems in the metropolitan area.
The Faculty consists of the following buildings: the Margalef Building, the Prevosti Building and the Aulari Building. Classrooms and laboratories are equipped to meet the diverse teaching requirements of different subjects and are fitted with the latest technologies to guarantee the quality of the learning experience.
