A welcome letter from the rector

Alfonso Méndiz

Our university is committed to offering high-quality, pioneering and individually tailored teaching.


I am proud to welcome you to UIC Barcelona. You will find all the information you need about the University, such as who we are, what we offer and how we work on our website.

Each university is different, and our main difference lies in the way we do things. At UIC Barcelona, we are committed to providing high-quality, individually tailored and pioneering teaching. We educate students to become capable professionals from a multidisciplinary perspective; people with integrity who are prepared to face the  challenges of a global marketplace, and who contribute towards the creation of a fairer world based on a strong sense of solidarity.

Since the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya was founded, we have placed a strong focus on our students. Since 1997, we have been teaching people based on academic rigour, an enriching university life and fulfilling life experiences.

We accompany students throughout both their degree programme and their life plan. As rector, I will take on the responsibility of ensuring this happens. Over the past twenty-five years, the improvements we have made have one sole purpose: to help students complete their degrees and guarantee a solid education in terms of both professional knowledge and human values.

We offer students the opportunity to study in one of the world's most vibrant cities, which is an important part of our identity. We place students at the centre of their own education and accompany them throughout their time at our University, helping them achieve their dreams. That is our commitment to them. To you.

I invite you to actively take part in our community and I hope to greet you in person soon.

Best regards,
Alfonso Méndiz
