Why is the UAB opting for the Pilot Plan for Adaptation to the Bologna Process?
The Autònoma aims to give our students greater potential, providing them with the same level of training as their European counterparts, with whom they will be in direct competition for employment, postgraduate training and research.
During the 2003/2004 academic year, the UAB model was used as a basis for structuring the implementation of the ECTS system. Based on the experience acquired from the qualifications for which the UAB Pilot Plan was used (Mathematics, Geology, Education Studies, Industrial Relations and Art and Design), evidence has been collected that will facilitate and improve the implementation of the system for other courses.
The UAB has created working groups for different courses with the aim of developing a new education model to support the new structure. The DURSI initiative, therefore, makes it possible for the changes drawn up by the different working groups to be implemented in lectures.
Today, more than ever, we must give our students the keys to access the European Higher Education Area and make it easier for them to continue studying or working in any EU country.
By studying at the UAB, more doors will open for you. You will be taught in a different way, more similar to the system used in the rest of Europe. You will learn more, and you will learn how to learn. The syllabuses will remain the same, but the teaching methods and the way students work will be different. By taking a course adapted to the Bologna process, you will study using methods that are more adapted to the environment you will find yourself in during your professional career.
The UAB is giving you a "2 for 1" offer: during the 4 years of your course you will receive a qualification a year before finishing your official degree. Therefore, by studying at the UAB you will obtain an official degree in accordance with the current syllabus, and a three-year qualification recognised by the Catalan government that will be in line with future qualifications for all European universities.
