The University of Barcelona is the most eminent public institution of higher education in Catalonia, catering to the needs of the greatest number of students and delivering the broadest and most comprehensive offering in higher educational courses. The University of Barcelona is also the principal centre of university research in Spain and has become a European benchmark for research activity, both in terms of the number of research programmes it conducts and the excellence these programmes have achieved.
With a history closely tied to that of Barcelona and Catalonia, our university combines the values of tradition with its position as an institution dedicated to innovation and teaching excellence; the University of Barcelona is as outward-looking and cosmopolitan as the city from which it takes its name.
