The University of Barcelona can be found just off the Passeig de Gracia, very central. It is more than 550 years old and the main Spanish University with the most students. The courses offered are not only Bachelors but also Masters and PhDs. It is proud to be a university that uses both national languages and most of its graduates are from Catalonia.

One of the problems Erasmus come across is the language barrier between Spanish and Catalan. For those who speak French, it can be easy to read and even understand but does not allow the student to practice their Spanish. Be aware that most courses are taught in Catalan and if enough people ask, they may teach in Spanish.
