The UIC's Faculty of Communication Sciences offers a wide range of activities so that students can experience communication at first hand in their final year.
These activities are organised so that students who are passionate about Journalism, Audiovisual Communication and Public Relations can discover each profession and experience it at first hand.
If you're passionate about communication, come along to see us in person at the UIC's Faculty of Communication Sciences. We look forward to meeting you!
This is a workshop-competition where you can think, work and make decisions as if you were a real communication professional. Guided by lecturers and professors from the Faculty, you'll work in the television studio, the radio studio, and the editing rooms, etc. You will be able to create an audiovisual project from scratch, which will subsequently be entered into a competition with an opportunity to win prizes.
We have designed three theoretical-practical courses, one for each degree programme, in which you can learn the basic and key skills of each profession and put into practice your skills as a journalist, an audiovisual communicator, or an advertising or public relations professional. The courses are free, are 3 days long, and are taught by active professionals.
The Faculty has set up an activity which is carried out under the umbrella of the Escolab workshops and promoted by the Institut de Cultura (ICUB) and the Institut d'Educació (IMEB) in Barcelona City Councilthrough which we invite second year baccalaureate students and those doing higher level vocational education courses to actively experience communication.
Would you like to come along as a sit-in student?
We have opened up our classrooms so that second year baccalaureate students can attend some of our classes as sit-in students. This is a way for them to learn new concepts related to their future profession and experience daily life in the faculty.
We encourage you to come along with your parents to one of our coaching sessions with one of our lecturers. The session is completely personalised, and we will answer any questions you have about the degree programmes, the Bologna process, how to make the transition between school and university, and the professional opportunities each specialisation involves.
Communicators for a day
An activity aimed at schools, which allows second year baccalaureate students to get to know our Faculty, to take a closer look at the degree programmes they are interested in (Journalism, Audiovisual Communication or Advertising and Public Relations) as well as undertaking a specific work placement. Ask your teacher to find out more about this activity!
We open up our doors annually to future students and their parents so we can inform them about the programmes we teach, about our lecturers and professors, and about professional opportunities, as well as show them our facilities and answer any questions they may have. We look forward to meeting you!
The UIC organises various information sessions in order to provide guidance to secondary school students and show them what life at university is like. The session consists of a general talk about the UIC, and information sessions for each degree programme with the corresponding coordinator, as well as a tour around the facilities.
The Faculty of Communication Sciences encourages the talent of future Journalism, Audiovisual Communication or Advertising and Public Relations students through the Grants for Academic Excellence. Find out about the pre-requisites and the dates for the entrance exams!
