UAB Summer School in Barcelona

Summer 2019

Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona (UAB) Summer School will take place at UAB's main campus in Barcelona from June 25th to August 3rd. The UAB Barcelona Summer School offers undergraduate subjects in a range of fields; it takes place on the UAB Campus once the ordinary academic year is over. The courses are taught 100% in English and are full-time intensive programmes, consisting of at least 55 contact hours over a three-week period. Lectures take place in the mornings from 9am to 1pm and students are recommended to spend between two and three hours per day on self-guided study. All subjects are worth 6 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System), which USJ can transfer to your own degree programme (depending on your home faculty’s regulations which is why it is mandatory to discuss the possibility of credit validation with your academic coordinator/Dean at USJ).
