Committed to Society with Compulsory Classes on Cooperation, Sustainability and Accessibility

UIC Barcelona aims to train architects to know and care about the needs of society, the environment and people in general. It is the only architecture school in Spain that teaches compulsory modules on cooperation, sustainability and accessibility. It offers students a holistic approach to architectural education, improving competitiveness by encouraging multiple skill sets, teamwork, responsibility, and entrepreneurship.

Individual Attention, Guidance and Coaching

Individual attention for students (1/15 teacher-student ratio in project-based subjects) and a holistic approach with a focus on social impact are considered key elements of this program. What does the mean? The university has a unique teaching method, Integrated Project-based Teaching (DIP), where each student is tasked with undertaking a project at every step of the process. The subjects are taught in a cross-disciplinary way in order to ensure that projects are worked on at all different levels: starting from an urban approach to set out both the architectural project overall and how it will be resolved at a technical level. Therefore students learn to work on a project starting from a territorial level all the way down to the construction details.

The school has a modelling studio filled with all types of analogical and digital machinery (lasers, numerical control machines and rapid prototyping 3D machines) that are operated by an expert who guides the work processes.

Cultural Activities with International Lecturers and Renowned Architects

The academic format is enriched by several workshops and lectures. During the Foros series, students attend various lectures delivered by prestigious national and international architects. During the week-long and intense Vertical Workshop, students from all five years of the programme are divided into teams. These teams create socially-oriented projects using models built on a real scale, under the supervision of renowned Spanish architects.

Classes Taught in English and Exchange Agreements

Having an international outlook, mobility and exchange programmes with universities abroad are some of the School of Architecture’s main priorities. Our degree programmes are eligible for recognition in any European Union country and many of the subjects are taught in English. As part of the programme, undergraduates have an opportunity to study for a year and half at the University of Belgrano in Buenos Aires and thus obtain a double degree. This will allow them to work both in Argentina and Europe. In addition, the University of Belgrano diploma is accredited by the prestigious Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).
