UC3M, the demanding bilingual university of Madrid.
Sara J
Spain, Graduate
International Relations, 2021
Overall
The university has a great prestige in the country, especially for studies relating to economics or international relations. A great number of degrees are offered in English (economics, international studies, business administration, law...), making it easy for international students to study full time or do exchanges without needing to learn Spanish. In the degree of international studies, for instance, there are full time students and teachers from around the world, as well as exchange students in almost every class taught, offering plenty of diversity. There is a big demand for entry into the university, which has made entry grades rise progressively overtime. As for the course program, most courses are divided into two sessions per week: a lecture and a seminar. The work required is constant, including final essays and exams, as well as weekly assignments and/or midterms. Assistance is required in almost every class. As a result, students dedicate a considerable amount of time to be able to pass the courses successfully. In times of Co-vid19, courses are partially taught presentially. Lectures are online, while students can decide whether to attend seminars presentially or online. There are different campuses (in Colmenarejo, Getafe, Leganés and Puerta de Toledo), each of them specializing in a certain area of studies. The campus of Getafe, for social and juridical sciences, offers two different libraries, three cafeterias, information offices for full time and exchange students and multiple classrooms and buildings. There are two student lodges near, organized independently of the university but offering and easing of procedures for students.

Master condensado para que solo dure año y medio, denso y complicado.
Kenza M
Spain, Graduate
Telecommunications, 2021
Overall
La Universidad en sí es muy buena, el campus es grande y bien equipado y las instalaciones son bastante actuales. El profesorado es variado, te puede tocar desde el profesor que explica muy bien pero que machaca en los exámenes al profesor que explica de pena de manera que los alumnos aprendan independientemente. Los cursos también son bastante genéricos los dos primeros años del grado, siendo una ingeniería. Es hasta los dos últimos años que empiezas a dar materias relacionadas con algo en lo que podrías trabajar. Sin embargo, creo que el master de Telecomunicaciones lo hacen bastante más duro de lo que debería ser. Las materias que antiguamente eran de 9-12 créditos y duraban el año entero ahora son materias condensadas a 6 créditos. El temario es muy denso y cuesta seguir si no estudias a diario. Lo que he sacado de la universidad es aunque parezca que algo es muy complicado, que no tienes tiempo, que te parezca un jeroglífico, o que lo veas imposible, con esfuerzo, planificación y dedicación descubres que no lo es. Todo es posible y todo tiene solución.

Overall
Personal recommendation
The university has a good reputation between Spanish universities and also as regards to other universities in Madrid. That is really true, because everything was well organised starting from tutor-organisation (that is important!) to the interesting courses.
