In any given year, the UPC has about 2000 doctoral students. About half of them are from Catalonia and the rest of Spain. The other half come from Europe (10%), Latin America (22%) and Asia (12%). In the 2016-2017 academic year, 49 doctoral programmes are being taught. This page is designed to bring together all of the information doctoral students might need if they are planning to come to the UPC and to help them once they are here.
This website is part of a pilot project called Landing at the UPC by administrative staff from several UPC departments. The project’s aim is to improve the information provided to international students who have just arrived at the UPC to pursue a doctoral degree.
