CETT International Support

Because we understand the challenge of living in an environment that is not your own, the CETT-UB Campus offers you the International Relations Office (IRO), as an area designed to provide guidance, advice, and attention to international students during the Master's programs.

Our International Relations team will give you the necessary information related to logistical aspects of life in Barcelona, such as residency registration, the processing of your foreign resident's identity number (NIE), or how to find accommodation in the city.

Procedures related to your academic stay

The IRO team will provide you with updated information on the necessary procedures to carry out once you are in the city. They will provide you with guidance on essential documents such as your foreign resident's identity number (NIE), the official census at the City Council, or your university student card.

Languages

If your native language is not Spanish, the IRO team will advise how and where to learn it. They will also tell you where to learn Catalan, facilitating your integration into the city's daily life. Besides, you will strengthen your Spanish through the certified courses offered by our Language Department at CETT-UB. On the other hand, if you want to practice any different language informally, you can participate for free in our language exchange program with CETT students.

What do I need to access the Master?

The Master's degree can be accessed from any degree linked to the branches of knowledge of the social sciences and humanities, especially those focused on the field of the tourism sector.

The Master has an offer of subjects designed exclusively to adapt to the specific needs of potential students as training complements.

Candidates who do not come from the degrees mentioned above will have to complete additional training, taking a specific subject of “Fundamentals of tourism activity” (6 ECTS), in order to recognize the dynamics of tourism in today's society, its development and trends, and distinguish the main operations and actors in tourism activities: destinations, intermediation, transportation and accommodation.

The procedure for admission to the degree can be consulted in the corresponding Information on access to studies section.
