Acadèmic

People aged over fifty-five who wish to register in any of the fourteen training programs offered by the University of Experience (UdE) for next academic year –can make their pre-registration from June 3 to 7, online and in person, in the head offices of the Area of Further Learning of the UB. After the mentioned dates, the registration will be available from June 13 on, and it can be done online and in person but in each head office, during the specific dates and times mentioned in the registration calendar. There are fifty places for each course; in case there are more than fifty pre-registrations, places will be assigned by draw.

Fourteen training programs

For the next academic year, the University of Experience will offer a new training program: Law and social state. With the analysis of specific cases and the study of concepts and fundamental problems, this program will get the students inside the field of law, legal rules and interpretation and application of law, as well as the concept of state and the features of social and democratic law state. Sessions will be practical: concepts will be worked on with a presentation, analysis and debate on the cases, that will answer questions such as “what is law about? How does it work? What identifies a social state?”. In some cases, the demand is so high that new groups are opened, such as in History, Society and Territory.

All programs in the University of Experience provide a high-level training in several fields of knowledge and most of them follow a mixed training model sharing the room with bachelor degree students in some courses. These programs do not require the students to have previous studies. The courses have a length of one or two academic years, and are taught by lecturers from the University of Barcelona.
