At the BaPIS, the experience goes beyond the classroom. We have put together a program of orientation and cultural activities to allow participants know each other and create a community. Ice-breaking events, cine forums and a reading club will be an excellent opportunity to know students from UPF and all over the world.
There will be activities during the duration of the program, and participating is optional and included in the program fees. Students will receive the BaPIS newsletter regularly, with updates and a link to register for the activities, so make sure to get your spot.
Additionally, the newsletter of activities will include those developed by other institutions which are open to the public and might be of interest for BaPIS students. Join us at the BaPIS!
