Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) – International Summer School

Classes at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) are held at the UPF Ciutadella campus in the Barcelona city center, located near the Olympic Village and Ciutadella Park – very close to the beach. ASA program housing is conveniently located to the university. It takes most students only 15-25 minutes to get to school by subway.

All students MUST have 2 alternate courses approved by their home institution, in addition to your top choices, in case of changes in course availability or schedule conflicts. That way, if a course is full or cancelled, or if the courses you want to take meet at the same time, you’ll have back-ups that your school will accept. Ex: If you plan to take 1 course, you must have a total of 3 different courses approved. If you plan to take 2 courses, you must have a total of 4 different courses approved.
