Once again this year UIC Barcelona presented its degree programmes at the thirtieth edition of the Saló de l’Ensenyament academic fair, which was held at the Fira de Barcelona between 20 and 24 March. The university also attended Saló Futura to advertise its master's and postgraduate degree programmes, between 22 and 24 March.
The Faculty of Economic and Social Sciences is now offering new double degrees in ADE with Economics, ADE with Financial Economics and ADE with Marketing. In the latter case, a representative of this university, Nick Pronger, has given specific information of the double degrees. In relation to our Master’s degree programmes in Entrepreneurial Financing: Venture Capital and Private Equity, it has now received official recognition as a university master’s degree. It is also important to point out the opportunity to take the Bachelor's Degree in English via the English Programme, one of the university’s strengths presented during the event.
The Saló was officially opened by the Honourable Mr Josep Bargalló i Valls, Education Minister, and the Honourable Ms Àngels Chacón, Business and Knowledge Minister in the Catalan Government. During her institutional visit to the university’s stall, Business and Knowledge Minister Àngels Chacón underlined the “quality of the education provided at UIC Barcelona”.
UIC Barcelona presented sixteen degree programmes in total. Out of the degree programmes we offer, the Bachelor’s degree in Bioengineering, stands out, since it is the only one in Spain, and next year it will be taught for the third year running. Our Bachelor’s degree in Psychology also stands out, it started this year and involved the inauguration of the University Psychological and Psychiatric Support Clinic on our Sant Cugat Healthcare Campus.
The international nature of the university is clear due to the double international degree programmes it offers, taught in conjunction with IONA College (New York), UCLA (Los Angeles) and Birkbeck, University of London. In the latter case, on Saturday a representative of this university will provide specific information about the double degree programmes in ADE + Economics, ADE + Financial Economics and ADE + Marketing which UIC Barcelona teaches along with this university which is based in London.
One significant piece of news is the fact the Faculty of Education is moving to our Sant Cugat Campus; this will take place next year. The move will promote a symbiosis between education and health, through two double degree programmes: Psychology with Primary Education and Psychology with Pre-Primary Education, these programmes are currently being developed. A double degree in Humanities and Journalism is also available in our course catalogue.
Finally, in the field of healthcare, next year we will offer a new Master’s Degree in Urgent and Emergency Care.
