Quality of studies
The new European legislative framework and the Spanish government itself, through the LOU, stipulate that universities must ensure that they meet the objectives specified for the courses they teach and pursue a policy of continuous improvement. As a result, universities must have policies, formally established and publicly disseminated, that guarantee internal quality.
To this end, the School has developed an Internal Quality Assurance System (IQAS). On the basis of evaluations within the framework of the AUDIT program, it received a positive assessment from the University System of Catalonia's Quality Agency (AQU), showing that it complies with the guidelines established in this program.
Research at the School
The School works on the social impact of research, its links with graduate studies and the promotion of PhD theses.
Studies with an international dimension
To become international is to discover the plurality in oneself, while discovering the plurality in others. Traveling and meeting people, encountering other cultures and languages, all contribute to our life experience and our growth as human beings and as professionals.
