Overall
Los cursos són muy buenos, ya que no se centran en una cosa en concreto, sinó que, se tiene la oportunidad de aprender mucho de todo. Estudiamos asignaturas como Acústica, Emisores y Receptores, Equipos de sonido y de vídeo, Programación en Python, C++, entre otros...
Además, la mayoría de profesores ayudan en todo lo posible a que el alumno entienda la asingatura y apoyan la evolución del/de la mismo/a hasta donde él/ella quiera llegar.
Por otro lado, brindan muchas oportunidades a realizar prácticas en empresas, ya que cada departamento tiene su propia bolsa de trabajo y la UPC en general, también, por lo que es fácil encontrar empresas dónde realizar las prácticas.

Personal recommendation
It is regarded as one of the best in the region but it is hard and there is a lot of studying, especially if your Spanish skills are not advanced

Final comments
Accommodation just outside Barcelona is cheaper and nicer, and the travel doesn't take much longer. Instead you have better access to the local culture and the beaches are much more beautiful outside Barcelona. I lived in El Prat close where the Barcelona airport is. Good transport to the city, university and cleaner place. Close to wonderful places and beach of Sitges, Gava, etc.

I wish I had known that so many classes are in catalan. But I guess that if you are here for a longer time you can learn it. It is sort of mix between spanish,french and italian. For my short stay of three months it wasn't worth learning it. And don't make yourself illusions it would just be an accent, it's a language on it's own. But at the same time I don't want to make you scared. Go there! Barcelona is a great city! Beautiful, lots of things to do, with beaches and spanish is a beautiful language and not easy to learn.

Personal recommendation
It is supposed to be the best university in Europe for architecture, but I went to too few classes to be able to say something about it's quality. Neither was I participating in an exchange program which I think makes the start much easier. I had quite some troubles finding my way in the beginning, like finding out which classes are in spanish and where they are.

Go and live with other people in an apartment. I did that and had a great time. It's cheaper and you get to know people straight away.

UPC is a big and really good university, but I was in a small faculty (Agronomic), if you're studying Architecture, Industrial Engineering.... I'm sure that your experience will be unforgettable

Overall
L'UPC met l'accent sur les relations internationales, à la fois en envoyant ses élèves à l'étranger mais aussi en recevant un bon nombre d'étudiants non espagnols. Les cours y sont intéressants avec la plupart du temps des professeurs pédagogues et passionnés.

Pros
L'accueil des étudiants étrangers, le choix des cours pour tous les goûts
Cons
Les documents de cours et administratifs trop souvent uniquement en catalan.
