On 30th January, at BSB Nexus, the new Pre-University Campus
For the tenth year in a row, The British School of Barcelona will hold its Annual Spanish University Fair on 30th January at BSB Nexus, the new Pre-University Campus in Castelldefels.
The day will bring together 34 of the most prestigious universities in Spain with the goal of providing information to Pre-University students and their families about their educational offering, entrance requirements and application processes for various undergraduate courses.
This year, the fair —which has already established itself as one of the international school’s main events— has extended its opening hours and is now open all day long thanks to the attending universities’ excellent response. The Spanish Universities Fair is part of our Pre-University Mentoring Programme to help our students make informed decisions about their future. It is a unique opportunity for parents and students to analyse the options open to students once they complete their schooling.
Also, for the first time this year, we will be hosting a Question & Answer panel with some of the school’s alumni. The theme of discussion will be “Life at university after BSB: Discover what’s NEXT for you!”, and the participating members of the BSB Alumni Association, launched last June, will be sharing their experiences, first year anecdotes and tips with our current students in Years 12 and 13.
The Universities and study centres that have confirmed their attendance to the 10th Spanish University Fair are: Blanquerna – Universitat Ramon Llull (URL), CETT – Universitat de Barcelona, EAE Business School-Universitat Politènica de Catalunya, ESADE – Universitat Ramon Llull (URL), ESCP Europe Business School, Escuela Europea de Diseño (IED), ESERP Business School, European University, Instituto de Empresa (IE), IQS – Universitat Ramon Llull (URL), La Salle (URL), Les Roches, The Ostelea Barcelona – Universitat de Lleida, Universidad de Navarra, Universidad Europea, Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF), HTSI Facultad de Turismo y Dirección hotelera – Universidad Ramon Llull-URL, Escuela Universitaria Salessians de Sarrià (EUSS) – Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Institute of the Arts Barcelona, Escola Universitaria de Disseny (ESDI) (URL), Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (UIC), Swiss Education Group (SEG), Hult International Business School, TBS Barcelona (Toulouse Business School), Harbour Space University, Universitat Abat Oliva – CEU, ESCI – UPF, Glion, UPC-Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, IGEMA- centre d’estudis universitaris, BAU – Centre universitari de Disseny, ELISAVA – UPF Escola universitària de Disseny i Enginyeria, Vatel – Hotel and Tourism Business School Andorra and Instituto Marangori – Milano School of Fashion.
Mrs. Consol Fernández, Technical Director of the Spanish Department at BSB, and organiser of the event, expects a high turnout ‘thanks to the department’s excellent results. The fact that 100% of the students that have sat the Selectivitat exam in the last few years have passed and have been accepted into their first university choice speaks to the excellent health of this choice in higher education among our student body. The university offering in Spain is superb and at BSB we promote a wealth of guidance activities that help our students take the best decisions for their professional future.’
The Spanish University Fair is one of the key components of the Pre-University mentoring programme at The British School of Barcelona, along with the “What Next Careers Event” (in February), the Annual British and European University Fair (in April) and presentations by professional speakers, universities and centres for higher education invited throughout the year. The collaboration of BSB Alumni in this process is a fantastic addition to this programme.
