To follow Nursing degree studies at UAB it is recommended:

  • B2 in Catalan or Spanish, if the student wants to take Practicums.
  • B1 in Catalan or Spanish, for the rest of the subjects.

Our study programme is based on a big practical charge, where our students are dealing with patients who usually speak in Spanish or Catalan.

Consequently, no classes are given in English

UAB can also offer to our incoming students, the possibility to complement their knowledge by entering some Spanish or Catalan course at our Language School:

Nursing students are all assigned to Vall d'Hebron Hospital Teaching Unit during their stay at the UAB. There they will follow both theory and practice for all enrolled subjects.
