However International Students can follow classes taught in Spanish. There’s also some courses offered in English

The foreign languages taught at CETT are English as a second language and French. Incoming Students may undertake these languages only if they remain throughout the year, since the language courses are organized in an annual basis.

There is the possibility of Spanish courses for foreign students organized by the University of Barcelona


The evaluation system is specified in the official program of each subject and is based on a continuous assessment throughout the semester that may consist of exercises, individual and teamwork, lectures, exams...
