Are you considering taking a master’s or a doctoral degree? Not sure which programme to choose? Do you feel that you need to talk to the programme coordinator? Do you need info on admission procedures or available grants?

Don’t worry: the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - BarcelonaTech (UPC) is holding a new edition of the UPC Postgraduate Virtual Fair from 26 February to 1 March. The event features live information sessions on postgraduate studies in the fields of engineering, architecture, science and technology.

The virtual fair is divided into 13 pavilions, corresponding to the University’s different areas of knowledge, where visitors can access various stands providing information on the University’s master’s degrees, doctoral programmes and continuing education master’s degrees. Visitors can register for an extensive programme of information sessions that will take place during the week.

The event also includes specific sessions on the pre-enrolment and access procedures, grants and financial aid, and also talks aimed at international students, providing information on procedures related to degree homologation, visas and accommodation, among others. The fair also features a chat to address questions about the different postgraduate programmes.

Wide offer of postgraduate studies
The UPC offers 91 master’s degrees –45 taught in English–, 45 doctoral programmes and 71 continuing education programmes in emerging areas with high graduate employment. According to data from the last graduate employment survey by AQU Catalunya, 94% of UPC master’s degree graduates are in work and 93% took less than six months to find a job. Most of them started their careers thanks to work placements, 96% of which were on a paid basis.

International experience also plays a crucial role: the UPC has 1,551 exchange agreements with 716 higher education institutions worldwide, allowing 2,940 students to participate in mobility programmes last year. The University also has 44 international double degree agreements with 30 universities.
