International studies

With a commitment to providing quality international university education, Bau, Design College of Barcelona, offers a variety of content, subjects, courses and master’s degrees in English that will allow students to improve and acquire knowledge in an international and globalised environment, as well as welcoming international students to pursue their studies at the Bau.

Bachelor's degree in design

The Bachelor Degree in Design ensures that students, after graduation, can display level B2* in English. Two Compulsory subjects from the Degree in Design are taught in English to familiarise students with the English language and to ensure that they achieve the minimum B2 level required by their university studies. Moreover, students can take English courses from the UVIC- UCC ‘Study Abroad’ programme and validate them as RAC credits.

Moreover, the students have the opportunity to attend a university abroad through the ERASMUS mobility grant or an inter-university exchange.

Bau offers intensive English courses in collaboration with the UVic-UCC School of Languages. These courses aim to meet the needs of English proficiency that will lead to the achievement of the required level for the Degree in Design, as well as the possibility of taking a higher level in order to further improve their English language skills.

*(B1 for students who began their studies before 2014)

Masters and postgraduates

Because of the professionalising nature of the Higher Education provided by the Bau, some of our Master’s Degrees and Postgraduate Degrees are taught by bilingual teachers (Spanish - English), a situation that allows for the acceptance of international students. Students who are not fluent in the language are recommended to take an intensive Spanish course taught by the School of Languages at UVic-UCC in September.


The STUDY ABROAD Workshops are taught in English by the UVic-UCC, and are for university students up to 24 years of age, both from the Bau/UVIC-UCC and other foreign universities. Students from the Bachelor's Degree in Design who attend any of these subjects may validate them as RAC credits for the Degree in Design.

Summer courses

During the month of July, the BAU presents a series of practical courses on a single subject that, due to their practical approach, can be undertaken by students from the Bau and from other national and international learning centres. Meanwhile, BAU students can enjoy special discounts on the Summer University courses at the Kingston University and on their campus accommodation.
