Cost of tuition: Although Barcelona has a reputation for being an expensive city to study in, the prices of tuition at its universities are not too far below the average of other Spanish cities such as Valencia or Madrid and are below other European cities such as Paris or London.

However, the prestige and good name of institutions such as the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), the University of Barcelona (UB) or the various pioneering and innovative higher education centers, depending on the type of studies, are chosen by students who have a clear vocation and who justify the financial outlay involved in their enrolment.

But how much money are we talking about?

What most influences whether the price is higher or lower has to do with the materials to be used and the facilities of the university or college; the price also varies greatly whether it is for a degree or a double degree, or whether it is taught in a public or private institution: 

  • Average price of a degree: 1,500 euros per year
  • Approximate average price of a double degree: 2,500 euros per year
  • Average price of a technical degree (medicine or engineering): 2,200 euros per year
  • Average price of a degree in a private institution: 5,000 euros per year

All these prices can be reduced if you have an aid or scholarship, which is not always intended only for tuition, but you can also get grants for living in Barcelona or for travel.
