Universidad Ramon Llull International Relations

Surely you’ve visited URL’s website, but if you haven’t done it yet, we recommend you do so and read the information available on the Institution and the information for international students.

Pere Tarrés School of Social Education and Social Work

We’re working to improve the International Relations webpage, but in this link you’ll find all the generic information about our School (professors, administration and services staff, subjects, activities, conferences, library, etc).



Our School doesn’t have halls of residence, so all students, national and international, are responsible for their own accommodation. Nevertheless, we’d like to offer some references which can be helpful in organizing your arrival:

Language courses


Remember that Catalan, together with Spanish, is the official language of Catalonia and is lingua franca. We strongly recommend that you enrol in a Catalan language course during your stay in Catalonia.

  • Intercat: Set of electronic resources to learn the Catalan language and culture, thought specifically for exchange students visiting Catalan universities
  • Consorci de Normalització Lingüística (CNL, Consortium of Linguistic Normalization): free Catalan courses.


  • Instituto Cervantes: The Instituto Cervantes is a public institution created in Spain in 1991 to promote Spanish and the co-official languages of Spain and spread the culture of Spanish-speaking countries. It’s in 77 cities in 44 countries over the five continents.
  • Get in contact with International Relations ( to know about other Spanish courses in Barcelona.

The city of Barcelona

The first objective of your international exchange is to acquire academic and professional experience in a different cultural and academic environment, but we also hope that you enjoy your stay in Barcelona and Catalonia.

We only include some cultural advice, but we’re sure you’ll find your own alternatives when you’ll be in the city.
