THE ACADEMIC CATALONIA
In a few days the autumn returns and with it the return to the routine after the deserved vacations that we all deserve once a year, many people return to work, others arrive to prepare themselves professionally.
University studies, whether undergraduate or postgraduate, is an activity feared by some, loved by many and a new experience for others.
Every year thousands of students from all over the Iberian Peninsula and from every corner of the world come to Barcelona to study undergraduate, postgraduate, masters and doctoral degrees at the many universities located in the same city.
This fact implies an increase in the floating population during the second semester of the year and a peak in demand for real estate companies, which hasten to help these students looking for housing in which they can feel at home during the course of their academic activities.
Reducing us to Barcelona, this has very prestigious and highly-recognised universities. If we consult the different rankings on the quality and variety of academic services in Spain we will see in several of them see that these 4 Universities of Barcelona tend to be in the highest positions:
• Universidad Politécnica de Catalunya: It is a public university, which offers degrees, masters and doctorates. It is always at the top of the different international rankings.
• Autonomous University of Barcelona: The Autonomous University of Barcelona offers undergraduate, postgraduate, master’s and doctoral programmes in all areas of study. Finally, it is also public school.
• University of Barcelona: The University of Barcelona offers degrees, postgraduate courses, masters and doctorates. It is the public University that receives thousands of students every year, in addition to having the most varied offer in the different disciplines and being the best university research centre in the whole country and one of the most important in Europe. It combines the tradition of the city itself with the innovation of the institution and teaching excellence.
• Pompeu Fabra University: This University offers undergraduate, master’s and doctoral programmes. It is a university created in 1990 by the Government of the Generalitat de Catalunya with the aim of offering: training of the highest possible quality and in recent years, has experienced great growth in research. It is public.
The great offer, together with the variety of nationalities of the students, means that Catalonia’s work and professional capacity is boosted much more.
In addition to offering traditional studies, there are also specialized academies such as business and entrepreneurship schools that offer knowledge focused on people who want to dedicate themselves mainly to the world of business and related.
Not only for a whole year, we can also divide the year into semesters like the famous Erasmus students who come from all over the world thanks to agreements with Universities. This experience allows them to fall in love with Barcelona and cling to its benefits for a period of time.
