Barcelona Centre Universitari (BCU)
The centre offers step-by-step information for anyone wishing to study at Barcelona’s universities. The main task of Barcelona Centre Universitari is to advance, co-ordinate and manage activities geared to promoting Barcelona as an international university centre. To achieve this aim, the BCU creates and disseminates material highlighting Barcelona’s status as a university city. It is also extremely useful to foreign students in helping them integrate into the city’s cultural life and community, and in matters such as finding accommodation, tourist information, faculties, cultural activities, discount cards, grants, studies and scholarships and putting them in touch with international student associations.
