Structure and objectives

Students

UB-specific master’s degrees and postgraduate courses* are programmes that provide specialized and advanced knowledge. They are mainly focused on ensuring that the skills and competences acquired in previous studies can be applied to professional work and enable students to specialize or to refocus their professional activity.

In addition, the University of Barcelona offers courses with a more academic objective that provide knowledge for specialization or for comprehensive training and personal progress.

UB-specific master’s degrees and postgraduate courses can be classified as follows, according to the study load:

  • Master's degree, study load of 60 or more credits.
  • Specialization diploma / Postgraduate diploma, study load of 30 or more credits.
  • Expert course, study load of 15 or more credits.
  • Higher university course, study load of fewer than 15 credits.

The UB’s faculties and university school, the Institute for Lifelong Learning (IL3-UB) and UB-affiliated centres offer over 400 UB-specific courses each academic year. These courses are wide-ranging and multidisciplinary and are classified into 15 basic subject areas. Face-to-face, distance or blended learning formats are used.

*The University of Barcelona offers UB-specific master's degrees and postgraduate courses as provided for in Article 34.1 of Organic Law 4/2007 on universities. These courses do not carry the official status of university master's degrees, specified in Article 34.2 of the same Law.
