Vice Rector Màrius Martínez inaugurates the UAB Barcelona Summer School
Over 250 people from 33 nationalities have signed up for one of the 13 courses offered in this first period of the UAB Barcelona Summer School. In this edition, all courses are face-to-face, with only one being offered online. Registration is still open for students interested in enrolling in one of the 13 courses offered during the second period, starting in July.
Vice Rector for International Relations Màrius Martínez welcomed the students participating in the UAB Barcelona Summer School in an event which took place on 20 June at 9 a.m. at the Auditorium of the Faculty of Arts & Humanities.
Vice Rector Martínez highlighted the advantages of international students meeting and studying alongside local UAB students: "These classes will give you the opportunity to meet new people and make friendships that may last a lifetime".
Graham Mortyn, academic coordinator of the UAB Barcelona Summer School, explained the two periods of the UAB Barcelona Summer School, each lasting three weeks. Mortyn expressed his delight of having the school once again be "on site", with the "exception of one online course offered during the first period".
Following that Queralt Coll, from the Area of International Relations, talked about the Buddy Programme, through which local students are partnered up with new students, and she invited all attendants to "participate in the activities and challenges as a way to get to know each other better". Students must first sign up for these activities.
Vice Rector Martínez ended the event encouraging students to enjoy their stay as much as possible and discover all that Barcelona has to offer, while always following safety measures.
