Registrations for the UPF academic summer programme, the Barcelona International Summer School (BISS), will open on February 10, 2020. The full catalogue of the BISS 2020 is available on the website Students can choose among 33 courses taught in English or Spanish. The schedules and calendars (during the month of July) are based on modules, so that students have the flexibility to combine courses of 4, 2 or 1 week at the heart of Barcelona, in our Ciutadella Campus, creating a vibrant and motivating environment for participating students who are looking for an intellectually challenging summer experience.
UPF will apply a registration fee waiver to students coming from YERUN universities as a token of appreciation for a valuable partnership. Registration will be open until May 30.
In spite of the general uncertainty caused by the spread of the COVID-19 and the current closure of Spanish universities, UPF is working for the Barcelona International Summer School to take place as planned. Spain is taking extreme measures to contain the pandemia and we are looking forward for the situation to improve on time. The safety of the Summer School participants, instructors, and staff are of the foremost importance and UPF information on the COVID-19 is permanently updated on the university website.
As other scenarios cannot be discarded depending on the evolution of the situation, UPF is at this moment working on alternative plans, including a refund policy should the situation affect students ability of participating in the program. Updated assessments will be posted in this program website and timely sent via email to registered and interested students.
