The University: The Universitat de Vic is a young university, officially recognized by the Parliament of Catalonia in May 1997. The university aims to play a part in Europe and the wider world building on their strong Catalan roots. From its very beginnings UVic has promoted academic quality and a humane context for student-centered training. Their teaching programs offer quality and contact with students, as required for the European Higher Education Area. UVic also feels a strong commitment to Catalonia - its university system and the language and culture - and regional development, where they contribute to services outside the Barcelona area and promote a sustainable future.
Location: Midway between the mountains of the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean Sea, seventy kilometers north of Barcelona, lays Vic, the main administrative, population and service center for an area with 150,000 inhabitants. Its colorful past, still evident in many streets and squares of its historic center, is now complemented by its thriving present-day diversity. Vic is rich in contrasts between tradition and modernity, the heritage of rural life and cutting edge technologies, the peace of a small town and the gaiety of local festivals. Its wealth of museums, archives, historic monuments and associations of all kinds bear witness to the city’s civic, cultural and artistic activity. Economically, the trade, industry and service sectors are all important. As a market town, buyers come to Vic from far and wide. As for services, Vic offers a wide range of facilities, and administrative, health, educational and social services. As the main town of the Osona region, Vic forms part of the network of administrative centers around Catalonia.
Students may participate in this program for summer, semester or an academic year. For either of these sessions, students select from courses offered through UVIC academic departments grouped under the different faculties. There are a wide range of courses taught in English available to international students.
