What are the most relevant universities in the city?

Barcelona has a total of 8 universities throughout its territory that are divided into different campuses: 4 are public, 3 private and 1 is online.

How to choose the right option?

All the universities mentioned in the previous list, as well as other specialized study centers in certain branches and sectors, constantly work to adapt the degrees to the labor demand, as well as to the internationalization of their studies.

To choose the option that best suits your needs, you need to be clear about the type and branch of studies you would like to do. It is very likely that this decision will mark the rest of your life, so it is very important that you research, read and really choose the option that you think will fulfill you in all aspects and will bring you greater happiness and satisfaction.

Once you have chosen one of the many study options available, you must choose whether you want to carry out your studies in a private or public center, since the cost difference between the two options is quite high. Also, do not forget to consider the difficulty and access requirements for each of the universities, and check their training offer to ensure that they offer the possibility of studying the degree or master you want.

Considering these points, you should be a little clearer about where to study, but if you still have doubts, we give you some tips and points to assess to choose the best university:

  • Prestige of the university.
  • The teachers.
  • The focus of the program and curriculum.
