On 18 June 1990, Catalan Parliament gave the go-ahead for the creation of a new public university in Catalonia, Pompeu Fabra University, inspired by the principles of freedom, democracy, justice, equality, independence and plurality. From its beginnings, this young academic institution set itself this main objective: to train responsible professionals and citizens fully committed to civic values.
EDvolution is the education model currently being designed by UPF to adapt to the needs of tomorrow’s professionals, companies and social agents. This model aims to provide students with a global vision of the world and encourages an autonomous, proactive approach, with an emphasis on technological literacy and excellent communication skills.
UPF Research Service mission is to promote knowledge generation at UPF through promotion, advisement and management of the participation in research programmes.
The Global Student Satisfaction Awards empower students across the globe to determine the best universities of 2021. Universities with a score above 4.0 (out of 5) in any of the 8 award categories, receive Badges of Excellence. Congratulations!
The Student Information Desk offers:
Since 1997, UPF, together with the rest of the universities in the Province of Barcelona, the Barcelona City Council and the Catalan Government (Generalitat de Catalunya), has been collaborating with the Barcelona Centre Universitari (BCU) , an organism offering services relating to extracurricular university life for the community of foreign students studying in Barcelona. This housing service allows you to search its database and make reservations online for free, can assist you in different languages (Catalan, Spanish, English, French and Italian) and rounds off its services with free legal advice on rental contracts. It also provides short-term rental contract service.
Library/CRAI users include all the members of the UPF university community and any other persons expressly authorised by way of agreements reached with individual or organisations.
This is a service aimed mainly at students (but which can be used by the whole university community) to resolve the most common IT incidents, such as:
At Pompeu Fabra University there are three campuses:
UPF organizes a plan of theory sessions, which is the Sports Workshop, whose main goal is to offer a debate forum about sports and physical activities to the University Community.
The UPF Barcelona School of Management (UPF-BSM) has obtained EQUIS accreditation, the most prestigious institutional distinction for business and management schools, which certifies its quality based on rigorous international standards and places it among the elite of business schools.
I am not starting my study at this moment
I feel like UPF sometimes does not take in mind students. They are more concerned regarding the international prospectives and name that the university can have.
Good, but the two COVID-19 years have been tough, :( so I am looking for new experiences outside my country. My university made low effort in trying to make thing easy for us students, although the restrictions in Catalunya and Spain. It's been 4 estrange years and I felt abandoned by my university.
