The Universitat Internacional de Catalunya officially began its academic activities in October 1997. Organic Law 11/1983 on University Reform, (LRU) along with the 26/1984 Parliament of Catalonia Law, established the appropriate legal framework for the establishment of a university with the capacity to award official degree certificates.
Here you will find 16 degree programmes, dual degree international programmes and a wide range of master's and postgraduate degrees, in addition to continuing education courses in the field of your choice.
UIC Barcelona, as an organisation dedicated to research and knowledge transfer, is involved in the task of seeking out, disseminating and applying ethical alternatives to the socio-economic and environmental challenges faced by today’s society. It is within this framework that UIC Barcelona is establishing a series of objectives to promote sustainability throughout the entire University Community, in the areas of Organization, Teaching and Research and Environmental Management.
UIC Barcelona, as well as offering a good level of knowledge and university education, would like to provide a tool which facilitates incorporation into the labour market and/or access to other job opportunities for students.
This application allows students to easily access various job offers and work placements and sign up for selection processes.

Student Services is the office at UIC Barcelona that provides support to students. We are responsible for informing and advising students on issues regarding formalities and extracurricular matters.
We also encourage better links between the student body and university by integrating the students into the university system: providing information on housing and managing student IDs. In addition to this, we promote culture, sports and volunteering as tools for acquiring values and competences.
If you require accommodation during your time at the university, you may choose from student residencies, apartments and rooms that have been especially designed for your needs. The accommodation options are not associated with UIC Barcelona and must be arranged independently: prices, number of places, hours, services, admission, activities, etc.
The main aim of the Sports Service is to promote, encourage and organise, among members of the UIC Barcelona university community, sporting activities that help students' personal development through the values promoted by sport.
As of the 2008-2009 academic year, the University made all study programmes compliant with the regulations established by the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), effectively imparting all bachelor and diploma courses as formal degree programmes, and gradually phasing out prior courses of study.
UIC Barcelona is a great and international university overall and I have a lot of practical work in dentistry from the beginning which is of high importance in that subject. However the university could improve the professors English skills and the organization. Being German studying in Spain I am used to much more organized environment.
I'm starting my studies this September, I was previously enrolled at the American University of Beirut (AUB). I was forced to leave due to political and economical instability.
I have not started my studies yet, so I am still waiting to find out how my experience at Uic is going to be. Hope that it will be even better than I expect.
