Learning beyond disciplines
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. Both online and in campus, face-to-face courses will be offered. In 2021, twelve courses will be online and five in campus, provided that the sanitary conditions allow. If that was not the case, face-to-face courses will be adapted to online format, and registered students will be informed in advance.
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.
