|Language of instruction|
Due to the limited supply of courses in English, a whole study period solely in English is unfeasible.
Although sometimes some English-taught courses seem to be offered, you will have to be prepared to follow mainly Spanish-taught courses. The reason for this is that the English taught courses are often full or not available when you try to register for them. Hence, if your level of Spanish is not sufficient, you might not be able to reach the minimum required amount of ECTS (also for the Erasmus+ grant!)
Language requirement: a minimum language level of B1 (CEFR) in Spanish at the time of the Utrecht University Study Abroad application. Students can hand in the following documents in Osiris:
The International Exchange Office highly recommends a B2 level at the moment of exchange in order to fully participate in courses.
At the time of application at the University of Barcelona an official CEFR certicate (DELE B1) is required for course registration.
Spanish language courses taken at UB will not be part of the Transcript of Records issued by the Faculty of Law (so credits cannot be submitted in Utrecht).

|Estimated living costs per month|
The cost of living as an exchange student in Barcelona is approximately €800-€900 / Month.
Please bear in mind the cost of your expenses will depend upon your lifestyle!
Places available: 4 students for a semester or 2 students for a full year (or a combination of the former)
Please note that if you follow courses at another faculty (for example at the Economics Faculty), it might take some time before your transcripts is ready. This could become a problem if you want to graduate.
