Your Destination

Culture, sport, fashion, finance, media, and entertainment – Barcelona is brimming with it all. The largest city on the Mediterranean Sea, Barcelona is home to 1.6 million in the city proper and 4.5 million in the broader metro area. It is edged with a river on either side and backed by the Serra de Collserola mountains to the west.  

Castilian Spanish and Catalan are the official languages. Both are regularly used in all aspects of life and Catalan is not imposed. Taxi drivers, shopkeepers, professors, and host families all speak clear Castilian when Spanish speakers are present. Spanish is widely used at the university. Students don’t need to speak Catalan but learning a few words can open doors to making new friends.  

CIEE Barcelona is conveniently located in a historical pedestrian passageway in the heart of the city. It houses staff offices, classrooms, and open-air terraces. It is close to the host universities and to the city’s main attractions.

CIEE wants all our students to feel welcomed, supported, and empowered to succeed while studying abroad. Local CIEE staff have provided details about conditions and cultural attitudes that students with specific identities might encounter in Barcelona.

 

The Culture

Excursions & Activities

  • One of our popular day trips takes you to Montserrat, a Benedictine monastery retreat high atop one of the most spectacular mountain ranges in Catalonia. Not only is its history of significant religious importance, but the surrounding natural beauty is nothing short of breathtaking. There you can visit the monastery to see La Moreneta (the black Madonna), listen to the world-renowned Boys’ Choir (whose history dates back to the 14th century), and trek any of the numerous mountain trails where you’ll take in incredible countryside views and see the most unusual rock formations in all of Catalonia. Are you ready? Let’s go! 
  • Discover the Gràcia neighborhood, famous for its bohemian and artistic style and streets filled with color and culture. 
  • Visit the oldest preserved garden, reflecting both Neoclassical and Romantic styles – and try your luck in the park’s labyrinth maze! 
    Eat like a local and try popular traditional dishes like churros, patatas bravas, tortilla de patata, tapas, and pinchos. 
  • See a flamenco show! 
  • Hike the Carretera de les Aigües for amazing views over the city.

Academics

Academics

The Advanced Liberal Arts program in Barcelona is geared toward students with advanced Spanish language skills – at least six semesters of college-level Spanish (or equivalent). The program allows students to take courses at the University of Barcelona (UB) across a wide range of topics, and become part of the vibrant UB campus community, as well as take courses at CIEE Barcelona with other CIEE students. All students take an advanced Spanish language course in preparation for their courses at UB (starting in the spring of 2024, this language course will be optional for students who demonstrate adequate proficiency).

Students agree to speak only Spanish to encourage language and cultural acquisition.  

Important Note about Exam Dates: Students are required to stay in Barcelona until they have completed their University of Barcelona exams. Official UB Fall exams are in January, and official UB Spring exams are in June. However, early exams in December and May may be possible, but they should be confirmed on an individual basis with the professor at the start of the regular semester session, during the add/drop period. Please note that it is up to the discretion of each professor to allow the taking of final exams before the start of the official examination period. You will be provided with housing until all your exams are completed. As it is impossible to confirm your exam schedule prior to your arrival, if your priority is to leave Barcelona as soon as your university finals are finished, please book an airline ticket with a low change fee or a flexible departure date.
