The registration for the University of Experience regarding the next academic year is ready. This year it expands its offering with a training program in Humanities. Registration opened on June 15, now students can enrol in some courses and extensions, and after June 29, it will be open to the general audience so people can pre-enrol in first-year courses. Given the exceptional situation regarding the next academic year, the University of Experience has planned a wide range of programs. The first-year courses will take place through the resources in the Virtual Campus of the University of Barcelona. The second-year and extension courses will be carried out in a mixed format: a face-to-face course is planned, but it can change into an online course if the pandemic-related circumstances require so and there is no room available to respect the safety measures the health and academic authorities require.

Learning for the sake of knowledge

People aged over fifty-five who want to enrol in some of the training programs of the University of Barcelona can do so in the website. There are fifty places for each course; if there are more than fifty registrations, the allocation will be done by draw.

All programs in the University of Experience provide a high-level training in several knowledge fields and most follow a mixed training model shared with bachelor students in some courses. No previous training is required, and the length of these courses is of one or two academic years. The courses are given by the lecturers of the University of Barcelona.

The University of Experience offers, regarding the new academic year, a new training program in Humanities, which is added to the already fourteen it had.
