Autonomous University of Barcelona
Founded in 1968, the Autonomous University of Barcelona (Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona or UAB) is a young and dynamic public university and considered to be one of the best institutions in Spain and Europe for its quality of education and excellence in research. Unlike many Spanish universities, UAB was designed to be a campus university with academic, research, cultural and social activities all concentrated in the same area. The main UAB campus, located in Bellaterra (Cerdanyola del Vallès), is a short 25 minute train ride from the center of Barcelona. The official language of UAB is Catalan and 60-70% of UAB courses are taught in Catalan. Students can write their coursework and take their exams in either Catalan or Spanish, and in some cases also in English.
University at Buffalo students with advanced level Spanish language abilities will be permitted to take courses taught in Spanish in a variety of majors. The main teaching language at UAB is Catalan so although coursework through this program is primarily conducted in Spanish, Catalan is present to some degree in most classrooms. Students will be able to take Catalan language classes and must be able to do coursework and exams in Spanish.
A few majors offer courses available in English, including:
Business Management and Administration (1st year courses not available to exchange students)
UAB offers university accommodation for exchange students in the University Village on the UAB campus. Rooms for exchange students are available in 2-person and 4-person apartments. Each apartment has a kitchen and a bathroom. The complex also contains a student support center, bookstore, supermarket, and two cafeterias. Exchange students can also opt to live in an off-campus apartment. For more information, visit the UAB accommodations website.
Estimated costs for this program can be found at the top of this page next to Budget Sheets by clicking on the term.
