Why did I choose the UB?

I chose the University of Barcelona: to do my doctorate, because I took both a pre-EHEA degree and a master’s degree at this university, and it meant I could continue my training in a quality educational environment that offered many opportunities. I also decided to do my doctorate here because of my supervisors, who supported me at all times and from whom I learnt a lot. So, although scientific quality was an important factor in my decision, the human factor was decisive. Finally, I got my PhD and I will remember this experience all of my life. The UB has been like a second home.
