Where You'll Study

Students take classes at Pompeu Fabra University and optionally at the CEA Barcelona Center. Pompeu Fabra University’s six central Barcelona campuses offer a range of courses also taught in English and Spanish; as well as the opportunity to take courses with Spaniards for a truly integrated experience. The CEA Barcelona Center, located on the Plaza Catalunya in the heart of the city, offers courses in a range of subjects, taught in English and Spanish. Learning takes place both in and out of the classroom, with instructors taking full advantage of Barcelona’s many notable sites and attractions. Students will receive a transcript from Pompeu Fabra University, and - if opted for a CEA course - also from the University of New Haven, CEA’s School of Record, upon completion of their program.
