The Program for the 2020 edition of the Barcelona International Summer School at UPF has been adapted to respond to the situation caused by the expansion of the Covid-19, while maintaining its identity as an international cross-cutting summer program.


Even being online, the BISS will still be a virtual meeting space for a community of local and international students. They will interact live with professors and have access to all materials on an online platform.


In a different format, the BISS continues creating an internationalized community of students as it has been developed in previous years

The Universitat Pompeu Fabra offers the Barcelona International Summer School (BISS) as a flagship program to advance the curriculum of both domestic and international undergraduate students during the summer term in Barcelona.

Courses are credit-bearing (ECTS) and can be taken in English, Spanish or Catalan, in and international classroom environment. They are structured in modules of different duration and intensity, which can be flexibly combined in periods ranging from one to four weeks.

The BISS offers advanced training by building on UPF academic strengths, engaging leading faculty members to feature and share their current research with participating students.

Subjects have been conceived as an invitation to think and learn beyond and across disciplines, while approaching social and scientific challenges from content, methodological and practical perspectives. Independent research projects along these lines can be supervised by UPF scholars in the BISS summer term.
