I recommend this city and University.

On the one hand, it´s a small university if you compare it with another, that is you can know your classmates and teachers. But on the other hand, Cartagena also is small since it is not capital so there are less activities for the universitary experience. Anyway, UPCT is a prestigious university from Spain if we speak about engineering.

That's not serious

Spanis universities are not on the top of Europe, everybody knows that, but in this case is still worst. Old proffesors, who do not care about their students, old instalations, small libraries, inefficient staff and all of these in a non student-friendly city. There is some good proffesionals in ther but they are not te most.
