Information for foreign students

International students arriving to our University should contact the International Students Service. Please, visit the following web site for more information:, and particularly the Student Mobility Office.

The Student Mobility Office is part of the International Relations Service of UPC. Through its reception offices for international students (OMIB in Barcelona and OIRI in Terrassa), the International Relations Service promotes mobility and informs and helps international students who come to UPC.

The Unit provides information and assessment on the city, accommodation, Catalan and Spanish language courses, health insurance, scholarships,  and the various procedures that you will have to follow to legalize your stay in Spain.
