The Faculty of Education presents its new programmes at the Saló de l’Ensenyament
The Faculty’s move to our Sant Cugat Campus and the new double degrees in Psychology were the two key pieces of news that were announced.
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.
One significant piece of news announced at both fairs is the fact the Faculty of Education is moving to our Sant Cugat Campus; this will take place next year. The new facilities and proximity to the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences will ensure future professionals can acquire a more cross-disciplinary education. The move will promote a symbiosis between the two faculties, through two double degree programmes: Primary Education and Psychology, and Pre-Primary Education and Psychology.
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 stand 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 located in London.
