If you're interested in studying at UPF, we'll be happy to provide you with the information you'll need to get started on the application process.

Undergraduate Programmes

All undergraduate study programmes at UPF are adapted to the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and as such are directly recognised by all countries in the European Union.

Due to the UPF's academic prestige as well as the high degree of satisfaction with studies (7.67 on a scale of 1 to 10) and the job success of its graduates (87%, AQU Catalunya, 2011), undergraduate studies at UPF are in high demand as a first option and therefore, there's a good deal of competition to get in.

Undergraduate courses are primarily taught in Catalan, though some subjects are taught in Spanish or English. The International Business Economics Degree Programme is taught entirely in English, however, as are the last years in the undergraduate programmes at the UPF Polytechnic School.

Master's Programmes

UPF has committed to quality and internationalisation in post-graduate studies, with a wide range of research and professional university master's degree programmes adapted to the EHEA (European Higher Education Area), some of which are taught in English. Master's students account for a third of the overall student body at UPF, 37% of them international students from 61 countries.

In addition to these UPF university programmes, specialised institutions and centres that are part of the UPF Group also offer their own professional master's and post-graduate studies to meet the needs and demands of the labour market.

Doctoral Programmes

There are 9 Doctoral Programmes at UPF in the university's most prominent research fields, 7 of which have been awarded the prestigious Quality Mention by the Spanish Ministry of Education. With 50% foreign students, all programmes can be done in English, with more than 60% of dissertations written and defended in English in 2011-12.
