International Summer Term programme

Welcome to the UAB

Next summer, the UAB will once again organise its International Summer Term, which teaches undergraduate subjects in a range of different fields. Courses are taught 100% in English.

Depending on your home university’s regulations, especially if it has a mobility programme in place with the UAB, it may be possible to transfer credits obtained to your own degree programme.

It is not necessary to submit academic supporting documents in order to enrol in the International Summer Term 2017 programme.

Students from Nayang Technological University (NTU) of Singapur, National Taiwan University (NTU) of Taiwan, Thompson Rivers University (TRU) of Canada or universities belonging to the YERUN Network or to the ECIU Consortium have 20% off the enrolment price. When these students arrive in Barcelona, they must present an academic transcript from their home university. If they do not present it, they will have to pay the full price for the enrolment.

Academic coordinator: Graham Mortyn

The International Summer Term courses are full-time, intensive programmes consisting of 60 hours over the three-week period.

Students spend the day on campus. Lectures take place in the mornings (9 a.m.–1 p.m.). In addition, students are recommended to spend between two and three hours per day on self-guided study.
