Philosophy and values

Welcome to the project of your life. UIC Barcelona is the ideal place for carrying it out. Since 1997, we have been developing people based on academic rigour, university life and enriching life experiences.

Christian humanism inspires us to search for truth and to fully develop each individual project. We provide the opportunity to study in one of the world's most vibrant cities, which is part of our identity. 

Our university has around 8.000 students. Gain access to 16 degree programmes, 8 double degrees, around thirty double international degrees and a wide range of master’s and postgraduate degrees and continuing education courses in the field of knowledge you seek. 

We place each student at the centre and turn them into the key players at UIC Barcelona. That is our commitment to them. To you. We respond by providing individual attention, small class sizes, a close relationship with the teaching body, support services and everything you need to maximise your skills. 

Each university is different, and the way we do things is what sets us apart: personal attention, a comprehensive approach to each student, continuous links to the professional world and innovative teaching and research methods. We have signed agreements with over 50 companies and institutions, which trust in the centres, chairs and institutes at UIC Barcelona.

We are connected to society and to companies. Our teaching is practical in nature. It is imparted by teachers who are also active professionals and is complemented by a work placement programme that will help give you your first work experience. As a result, UIC Barcelona has the best graduate employment rate in the Catalan university system year after year.

In addition to knowledge, research and knowledge transfer, we invest time and effort in learning so that we might change the world. You will see this ambition in the people and activities at UIC Barcelona. It is part of our DNA.
