About University of Barcelona:

The University of Barcelona is a public institution that was founded in 1450. The urban university has multiple campuses spread throughout Barcelona and the surrounding area on the eastern coast of Spain. The Humanities Campus in the city center is the university's main location. Other university sites include the Bellvitge Health Sciences Campus and the Food and Nutrition Torribera Campus. Tuition costs are the same for international and domestic degree-seeking students. Some university-owned and -affiliated student housing is available for both undergraduate and graduate students. The university has many academic divisions, including biology, economics and business, law, medicine and health sciences, philosophy and psychology. Additionally, the University of Barcelona is affiliated with eight centers through collaboration agreements, including the School of Cinema and Audiovisual Studies of Catalonia, the Institute of Public Security of Catalonia and the National Institute of Physical Education. The university’s academic calendar is semester-based. Courses are primarily taught in Spanish and Catalan, since Barcelona is located in the Catalonia region, although a handful of bachelor’s and even more master’s programs are fully or partially English-taught. Examples of completely English-taught offerings include a bachelor's program in business administration and management as well as master's programs in economics and international relations. Some of the university’s many research institutes and centers are the Institute of Cosmos Sciences, the Water Research Institute and the Institute of Space Studies of Catalonia.
