Welcome to the student exchange programme at the Faculty of Communication Sciences

The Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona has exchange agreements with universities all over the world and offers a wide range of courses for exchange students. To study at the UAB as an exchange student, your university needs to have a bilateral agreement with the UAB and the student must be selected by the home institution.

Students whose universities of origin do not have an agreement with the UAB have the option of attending the UAB through the Study Abroad programme.


Before students submit their on-line application forms, it is required that the home university send us a list with the names of the students selected to come to the UAB before the dates above detailed to the following e-mail address:
