Pompeu Fabra University (Catalan: Universitat Pompeu Fabra) is a public university in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. It is widely considered to be one of the best public universities in Spain and in Europe, and was ranked 1st in scientific productivity in Spain in 2009.[1] Founded in 1990, it is named after the Catalan grammarian Pompeu Fabra. Currently (2009-10), the University academic offer includes 19 undergraduate degrees, 37 official masters and 9 PhD programs as well as around 60 UPF masters.

The UPF structures this offer around three campuses and three areas of knowledge:

Teaching and EHEA

From the outset, Pompeu Fabra University has understood the new European Area as a big opportunity to restructure the education it offers. The University’s commitment to this model has gone beyond simply updating its syllabuses; it has placed the student at the very centre of its undergraduate, master’s and doctorate teaching model.
