The UAB holds a leading position in the most prestigious international university rankings. In recent years, this award has been favored by the growing impact of the research, the constant improvement of the quality of teaching and the ability to attract international talent. This progress has been decisive in going forward positions in the three main university rankings: the QS World University Ranking, the Times Higher Education World University Ranking and the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) – Shanghai Ranking.

According to the THE WUR 2015/2016, the UAB is located at position 146th in the world, 70th in Europe and first in Spain.

In the ranking THE Top 100 under 50 2015 ranks the UAB 29th in the world, while in ARWU 2015 the UAB is listed on the 201-300 position.

We are one of the few universities in Spain to have a university campus and to develop its activities in natural surroundings. UAB’s infrastructure was created exclusively for university life and the campus provides all the services for academic, leisure and everyday life. Strongly committed to international projection, we participate in a wide range of international projects and student exchange programs in Europe, America, Africa and Asia.

In 2016 the UAB set up the International Summer Term, a program that allows international students from all over the world to study courses at the UAB.

The International Summer Term gives students the opportunity to study regular undergraduate ECTS subjects at UAB and meet students from all over the world.
