Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona
Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, commonly known as UAB, led the Spanish universities in the 2013/14 QS World Rankings and was voted the 9th best university under 50 years old in 2013.
UAB annually welcomes almost 2000 international exchange students onto its Bellaterra campus, located just 25 minutes from the heart of Barcelona. The university offers modules taught in English and a range of campus based initiatives to help students explore new horizons through study and extra-curricular participation.
The exchange agreement between King's and Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona allows two Full Year Equivalent (FYE) places for each institution. This equates to 2 students going for a full academic year only.
Eligibility for King's students
Important: Final decision on students' study abroad application to their host institution rests entirely with that host institution. Students must also meet their departments’ academic requirements to obtain final departmental approval to study abroad. It is usually at least a 60% average prior to departure, however this can vary amongst departments. Students should double check with their Study Abroad Tutor if they are unsure of their academic requirements.
King’s students that wish to study abroad at this institution should check the ‘Undergraduate options by department’ page to see if this institution is indeed an option for them.
Estimated living costs
Please see here for current estimated living costs, but actual expenses may vary depending on student lifestyle. The cost of travel to and from the country is not included in these estimates.
A reminder that King's students on exchange are not required to pay tuition fees to the host university, but you may incur administrative and/or orientation fees at the host. There may also be mandatory insurance costs, and transcripts may incur a fee.
Please also note that, if required, student visas often require applicants to supply evidence of financial support throughout the duration of the study abroad programme. Sometimes this will mean showing financial evidence for a specific amount, so please pay attention to the advice on this from the host institution.
