Study guides Application on-line Application for subjects


The final registration of elective subjects will be conditioned to the existence of free places at UAB when the student does his/her registration at the Exchange Office.

Without these documents and the on-line application it is not possible to accept your study program at UAB. Invitation to UAB will be done once accepted your study program.

To follow studies in Physiotherapy at UAB it is required:

  • 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 in 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:

Physiotherapy students taking 2nd and 3rd year courses are assigned to Sant Pau Teaching Unit during their stay at the UAB, and students assigned to 4th year courses are assigned to Vall Hebron Teaching Unit. There they will study both theory and practice of the subjects in which they are enrolled.

Combining both options is not advisable since courses are taugh in different hospitals. Please contact us if should you have any query about the process.

Some elective subjects may be given in other hospital Teaching Units, which are indicated in the annual planning.
The assignation of clinical practices will be individually closed.
