  • The University The Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (UIC) is a private, non- profit university that was set up by the Catalan Family Foundation.

    Since 1997, the UIC has aimed to serve society through the provision of comprehensive, high quality university education and the promotion of research according to the principles of Christian humanism.

    At present, the UIC has more than 4.500 students and offers a total of 13 university degree programmes. Our selection of Bachelor’s degree programmes is complemented by a wide range of Master’s, Postgraduate and Doctoral programmes and continuing-education programmes that make it possible for students to broaden their education and specialise in different knowledge areas.

    The UIC has two campuses: the Barcelona Campus and the Sant Cugat Campus. Both offer an on-going programme of cultural, recreational and sports activities that aim to ensure students’ overall development.

    The UIC’s objective is to strengthen students’ skills and competences as much as possible so that they can easily adapt to the new challenges in today’s society.

    The university takes an individualised approach, which involves teaching classes with a smaller number of students and providing comprehensive advice to students throughout the whole of their time at university.

    The UIC also has more than 2.000 internship agreements with companies in different industries both in Spain and worldwide. The majority of the teaching staff have professional backgrounds. Thanks to the UIC’s company work placement programmes, the university maintains a close relationship with the business community.

    The university is international in nature, which not only allows students to study part of their academic programme at foreign universities, but also enables them to gain hands-on professional experience as interns abroad.

    Another key objective for the UIC is to undertake research in all knowledge areas in order to contribute to the development of science and technology and improve the quality of life in Spanish society.

    This is the commitment that the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya makes to its students and society. The UIC is an institution where the university experience is undertaken as fully and intensely as possible.
