There are fifty student places for each course; in case there are more than fifty pre-registrations, the assignation will be done by draw.

 

New record in amount of students

Susana Vendrell, head of the University of Experience, values positively the current course, which is now ending: “The almost 1.250 registered students mean there is once more, a record regarding the amount of students. Moreover, the level of loyalty of the students is getting higher and higher (60%), and more than half the students enroll for another course in University of Experience when they finish one”. In these lines, Vendrell adds that the training program in Fine Arts, which was new this year, has been successfully received and has run out of places”.

The results of the student questionnaires also show that the satisfaction level is quite high, both regarding the received information before registering, and the content in the program and teaching task of the lecturers, as well as the conditions and quality of the buildings.
