Big Data, Egyptology, 3D Art and video game animation, Psychological First Aid, Digital Humanities and How to Be Persuasive are some of the more than 40 online MOOC courses offered by the UAB, totally free and available at any time. For the first time this year, members of the UAB community will be able to receive a MOOC certificate.
On 11 March, the UAB will offer an information session to talk about the Fulbright grants for graduates interested in enrolling in master's degrees, PhD programmes or predoctoral research projects in American universities.
Starting this week and until June, the UAB and the Centre for Demographic Studies (CED) will play host to the European Doctoral School of Demography (EDSD), a worldwide leader in demographic studies. Students from 14 different nationalities will attend lectures offered by renowned professors from different European research centres who will be visiting the on-campus CED headquarters.
The UAB has acquired a MATLAB license which will allow its university community to use almost all of the software products made available by this platform. It provides both academic and research tools and can be used on computers both on campus and at home.
Students who this year are beginning their bachelor's degree at the UAB can sign up for a free language level exam in English, German, French or Italian.
