Students must carry out a series of tasks and activities to take and successfully complete a university course. Class attendance is by no means the only task. Students must also spend time studying, building on information received in class, asking questions about their doubts, and putting their acquired knowledge into practice.
The University of Barcelona promotes and supports all the services and activities that enable students to do their university work as well as possible.
Consequently, the University provides access to libraries and the Virtual Campus, gives information on and manages available grants and financial aid, promotes the national and international mobility of students, provides opportunities for work placements in companies and manages integration programs for students who have special needs.
