International Summer Term programme

International Summer Term UAB 2017

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 2018 programme.

Students from 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.
