The University

Barcelona International College is located along the Mediterranean Sea coast where students have the chance to not only listen and speak Catalan and Spanish, but are also able to hear conversations in French, Portuguese, and an array of other languages from across Europe.  The College itself sits in the heart of the Eixample district of Barcelona, which is an area of the city that was constructed during the 19th- and 20th centuries in the Modernist style.  The location offers students a chance to use Spanish in everyday life, whether they are bartering for goods in a local market, or viewing Gaudi’s architecture, or meeting new friends in Miro’s park. The program emphasizes immersion in the Spanish language, while also allowing the students to earn college credit through classes taught in English.  These innovative courses are taught by highly qualified professors, both from Spain and across the world, and have been adapted to account for the diverse international student population while still maintaining the Spanish style of teaching.  The campus possesses modern facilities which include spacious classrooms complete with multimedia equipment.
