About Pompeu Fabra University:

Pompeu Fabra University (UPF) is a public university in Barcelona, Spain. The Universitat Pompeu Fabra is a highly regarded Catalan and Spanish university, created by the Autonomous Government of Catalonia in 1990, named after the linguist Pompeu Fabra, an expert on the Catalan language, credited with standardising this once-disused language and revising it, giving it the status it holds today. The university is a modern institution based on the model of the high-powered American research university with controlled admissions and an emphasis on rigorous instruction and research. UPF offers its studies around three areas of knowledge: the social sciences and humanities, the health and life sciences, and the ICT and communication sciences. Teaching is organized in seven colleges: Humanities, Health and Life Sciences, Economics, Political and Social Sciences, Communication, Law, Translation and Interpretation as well as one polytechnic school focused on engineering and ICT. Research is organized in eight departments: Economics and Business, Law, Political and Social Sciences, Humanities, Experimental Sciences and Health, ICT, Communication and Translation & Language Sciences. The University also has five affiliated centers (UPF Barcelona School of Management, International Trade Business School -ESCI-, Elisava School of Design, Tecnocampus and Mar University School of Nursing -ESIM) and partnerships in different inter-university postgraduate platforms such as the Institut Barcelona d'Estudis Internacionals -IBEI- or the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics -Barcelona GSE-).
